2016: removal of British National Party from register of political parties by Electoral Commission

2015: no bnp candidates in council elections in Wolverhampton

2014:

Wolverhampton, Bilston & District Trades Union Council took the decision to continue our successfull policy of campaigning against the fascist BNP whenever they stand. BNP were trounced in Bushbury North and Springvale again with their lowest ever votes.

Wolverhampton, Bilston & District Trades Union Council organised 8 leafleting sessions of Hope Not Hate anti-BNP material in Bushbury North & Sringvale wards. Anti-ukip leaflets were also distributed to homes in Wednesfield South. Our message was to use your vote against the fascists.  Turnouts where we leafleted increased and were much higher than in neighbouring wards.
