British National Party MEP Andrew Brons announced his resignation today, hammering another nail into the racist party's coffin.
Brons and BNP leader Nick Griffin were elected to the European Parliament in 2009, Brons for Yorkshire and the Humber, Griffin for the north-west.
It marked the BNP's electoral peak and the party has been disintegrating ever since the 2010 general and council elections, which saw it wiped out in its stronghold territory of Barking and Dagenham.
Griffin has maintained his hold on the BNP despite internal opposition that he has dealt with ruthlessly, often expelling anyone seen as a threat.
Brons has never challenged Griffin's leadership, but the growing rift between the two fascists has long been common knowledge.
And now he's expected to form a new neofascist party to challenge the BNP.
