Formed in 1982 by John Tyndall, the British National Party's guiding principle has always been to oppose non-white immigration into the UK and endorse repatriation of blacks and Asians living in Britain.
The party, which marks its 20th anniversary next year, has sought to tone down its racist bullyboy image, in an apparent bid to imitate the electoral success of the French National Front and the Austrian Freedom Party.
Under its current policy, the party backs an immediate halt to "all further non-white immigration" and the "voluntary resettlement" of non-whites to "their lands of ethnic origin".

 Liberal Party (UK)
In 1841 the Liberals lost office to the Conservatives under Sir Robert Peel, but their period in opposition was short, because the Conservatives split over the repeal of the Corn Laws, a free trade issue, and a faction known as the Peelites (but not Peel himself), defected to the Liberal side.
In 1981 defectors from the moderate wing of the Labour Party, led by former Cabinet ministers Roy Jenkins, David Owen and Shirley Williams, founded the Social Democratic Party.
A group of Liberal opponents of the merger continued under the old name of "the Liberal Party"; this was legally a new organisation (the headquarters, records, assets and debts of the old party were inherited by the Liberal Democrats), but its constitution asserts it to be the same party as that which had previously existed.
