That’s right folks – the British National Party would like to flatten buildings such as the Hayward Gallery, the National Gallery and Trellick Tower
While perusing the manifesto of all the parties vying for Astragal’s vote at tomorrow’s (4 June) European election, this statement leapt out from the BNP’s policy section, titled ‘Environment’:
‘In towns we would work to replace the brutalist modernism of 1960s-style-architecture with a blend of traditional local styles and materials and ensure that developments take place on a more human scale.’
The mantra will no doubt be on the tip of the tongue of Kevan Stafford – a retired architect from Loughborough, Leicestershire, who is standing as an MEP candidate for the BNP.
Readers may like to know Stafford’s fellow BNP candidates for the East Midlands area include a reverend who fled the ‘stifling “political correctness” of Tory Central Office’ and a former star of the LWT fly-on-the-wall series Airline.
