Racist flyers promoting the far-right British National Party have been distributed in the west of Barnet, it was reported. The flyers, which contrast scenes from 1940’s Britain with three women in veils under the headline “Is this what you really want?” have been found in Burnt Oak and Colindale in recent weeks. The likely source of the flyers is the BNP presence in Harrow, where in December the party fielded a candidate in a council by-election. The candidate, Howard Studley, finished in last place with 56 votes. Shakil Ahmed, a member of the congregation at the Hendon Mosque, said that relationships between different communities in Barnet were good, but that the concern of such views spreading are “always there”.
