Norman Tebbit: The Left-wing BNP could cost Labour seats at the general election

As promised, today I'm going to say something about the BNP, but first I thought I should explain something to "Fabius", who wonders why, if I care about the plight of the poor, I am a Conservative. Well, that answers itself. I care about the poor not just because I was born one of them, but because they are very expensive people to have about us, and they represent a tragic waste of human material.
