Commenting on the outcome of the local elections in England where the

British National Party gained three council seats in Burnley, Bill Morris,

general secretary of the Transport and General Workers' Union said:

'We have consistently warned about what damage can be done when politicians

fail to address the concerns of voters. Vacuums appear and the extreme

'But if politicians think that the way to appease the extreme right is to

use the sort of tough-talking language we have heard in recent times, then

they are living on a different political planet from the rest of liberal

minded Britain.'
