I've never been "in the right" either, this is more my general low-level research about far-right nationalist movements coming to the fore. A quick look at the history of the BNP's relationship with the NF is quite illustrative there, for starters, in particular the early days with the League of Empire Loyalists, but it's such a common pattern.

Voting tactics in elections aren't necessarily the same as ongoing political activism either; it seems clear that there's a section of both the far left and the far right which disdains voting, but even leaving that to one side, that doesn't alter the ongoing factionalism one finds even among the voting majority.

I can't really answer the complicated question about voting statistics; I'll have to ask A. when he gets home *much* later.
