The BNP are hilariously no longer a political party because they forgot to pay their bills.
The Mirror report that the party were removed from the official register of political parties, after the fuck-wits forgot to pay a £25 registration fee to re-register as a party.
The Electoral Commission say the BNP didn’t pay the charge or submit a form which was due yesterday, so they are now required by law to take them off the register.
This means their candidates aren’t allowed to use the party’s name or logos to stand in any election in the UK until their registration is resolved.
A spokesperson for the BNP said: “If it has happened, it’s an oversight. All the accounts have gone in for the fourth year in a row, which we’re really proud of” – although he did admit that the accounts had been submitted slightly late for 2015/16 due to technical issues with their accountants.
The party’s accounts showed the party is facing financial oblivion after they lost £50,000 in deposits for European election contests. The BNP had a terrible European elections, where they managed to get an impressive zero candidates elected. Records apparently show they now have just £45,756 left in assets.
The Electoral Commission have confirmed, rather unfortunately, that the party can now choose to re-register for £25. The process can take up to three weeks to complete, including ten days during which their registration is put up for public consultation. So let’s rejoice that for the next couple of weeks at least we’re one fascist party down.
Hilariously the BNP have tried to spin their colossal fuck up as an intentional media campaign on Twitter.

Unfortunately, a BNP spokesperson said they plan to have the issue resolved within ‘a couple of days.’ He added: “You don’t want to lose the BNP do you?”
Yes we do.
