The British National Party (or BNP for short) is a far-right political party in the United Kingdom. The party's policies promote an end to Third World immigration, right-wing populism and Third position economics. They are British nationalists. They want to "keep Britain British" by not letting people from other countries move to the UK.

Since 2009, the party has 2 out of 73 British seats in the European Parliament however it has no seats in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom or the devolved assemblies. The current leader of the BNP is Nick Griffin.

The BNP was started in 1982 by John Tyndall.

In November 2012 the British Democratic Party was started Andrew Brons. Brons started the party after leaving the BNP in October 2012. Brons wants the BDP to end the BNP. He does not like the BNP because he thinks its ideology is not extreme enough.
