Nick Griffin is now a Member of the European Parliament even though he won fewer votes than he did five years ago.
In 2004, the BNP in the North West polled 134,959 votes. In 2009, they polled 132,194. So, why did he win?
In short, because of a collapse in the Labour vote from 576,388 in 2004 to 336,831 in 2009.
