I CONSIDER Mr Kaiserman's letter (September 14) about the BNP to be a personal insult and an insult to my intelligence.

Firstly, I am not a Nazi, I am not a racist and I am also not a "mad dog". I am, however, a member of the emergency services, and find quite frightening the fact that if I was a member of the BNP, I could be expelled from the union and also run the risk of losing my job.

As far as I am concerned, when dealing with members of the public, my political views do not change the way I do my job; I will always do it to the best of my ability, regardless of race, colour or creed.

If there had been a BNP candidate standing in my ward they would certainly have got my vote. I don't see how a party that polled nearly one million votes in the recent elections can be so demonised and attacked by the Government. Do they not realise that by trying to undemocratically defeat the BNP all they will do is alienate the electorate even further?

Oh, and by the way Mr Kaiserman, I attended the Oldham riots and it wasn't the "racist BNP" throwing bottles, bricks and petrol bombs at us or "the alienated white minority".
