I read recently that they got 10% of the vote in a Todmorden election. Please note that the following website is affiliated with NF: http://natsentinel.blogspot.co.uk/2013/ ... nf-in.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Todmorden?! I always had the place down as "leftie Guardian reader, probably a Social Worker" central, based on my experiences of visiting. Goes to show what you don't see, I suppose.

I didn't realise the NF were still around in any kind of force!

They're insignificant nationally but have small pockets of support, usually where BNP activists have moved towards them.

They don't have much in the way of election support, but there is, I think, still a pretty large force of activists and sympathizers. They have a large base on the White supremacist forum Stormfront.

They tried to relaunch themselves before the 2010 election, I think. Given the ongoing disintegration of the BNP it wouldn't be too much of a surprise to see the NF pick up some more of its flotsam and jetsam over the next few years. A lot of far-right types are currently in and around UKIP though.
