Mr Griffin has had many years to burrow into the British National Party, and to entrench his position. He can and will be removed but this will take time, effort, and perseverance. My advice to those members of the British National Party who are losing patience, and defecting to other parties is to stay put, and sit tight. There will be a leadership challenge this summer. That will be interesting. Whatever the outcome we shall learn much from it, as we have already learnt much from the 2010 leadership challenge.
Here are a couple of sayings which point up the indispensability of patience.
"Patience and perseverance made a bishop of his reverence".
"No matter how great the talent or efforts, some things just take time. You can't produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant."
