That’s right, Robert West, BNP politician and founder of the Christian Council of Britain. The BNP’s website [http://bnp.org.uk/2009/07/nominations-in-reverend-robert-west-will-be-fighting-norwich-north-for-bnp/] reports:
‘Official nominations for the Norwich North by-election were submitted and accepted this afternoon and it is now official: Reverend Robert West will be contesting the seat for the British National Party.
“We will be fighting this by-election on local issues and how they are impacted by the mass immigration invasion of this country,” said Reverend West to BNP News just minutes after the nominations were accepted.
The BNP has not contested the seat before, and Reverend West said the party was taking on the challenge in that light. “We intend to establish the BNP as a name in the area in order to build for future elections,” he said. The by-election will be held on 23 July.
Reverend West is moderator of the Christian Council of Britain and a former Conservative councillor who joined the BNP after it became clear that the Tories were committed to the Islamification of Britain just like the Labour Party.
He stood for the BNP as its number one list candidate in the European elections, polling an impressive 106,319 votes for the party in the East Midlands region. Reverend West is also the BNP’s official spokesman on church matters, and has an impressive record as a lecturer at local colleges.

When was the last time we saw the BNP in Norfolk? Back in May, dropping in on church services to criticise the clergy. Clergy in Norfolk have cautioned against voting BNP.
