A 19-year-old BNP candidate’s beliefs that “white genocide” could reach Havering because of “TV brainwashing” are “complete nonsense”, according to a Labour councillor running against him.

Kevin Layzell, of Coronation Drive, Elm Park, is running for the British Nationalist Party in Heaton as well as for Member of the European Parliament in London.

He approached the Recorder this week to say he is the second youngest person running for council in the borough following our report on younger candidates last week.

The former pupil at Abbs Cross Academy and Arts College, in Hornchurch, said: “You can walk down parts of London and not see a white face. That’s not acceptable.

“Havering’s lucky: we have a low level of ethnic minorities here, but that’s changing.

“I can see the change and I don’t want that to happen. It’s not the future I want for my children.

“It’s a bloodless genocide where no one’s really dying but a whole race of people is dying out by forced race mixing.

“It’s done subliminally through advertisements. The average is usually a white 
female and a black male and a mixed race child.

“Because it’s shown 24/7 there’s no escape. They all have the same brain-washing TVs saying this is normal.”

But the young candidate is up against experienced competition from the Labour leader Cllr Keith Darvill, who has been an elected politician in the borough for 16 years, first as MP for Upminster.

Cllr Darvill said that multiculturalism is enjoyed by most people and struck out against the far-right candidate.

“It’s nonsense, his comments are completely ignorant and I find it very offensive,” he said.

“The issue really is not multiculturalism but the way we need to expand public services to meet increase in public 
demand. Havering is becoming more multicultural and those who come and work beside us, we would want to have a peaceful existence with them.”

Gooshays ward, which neighbours Heaton, in 2006 elected the first BNP councillor in Havering. Alan Bailey resigned two years later blaming work pressures prompting a by-election.

Mark Logan, then BNP, won the by-election before quitting, accusing the party as being a “bunch of racists”. He defected to the Independent Resident’s Association which he is running with again this year.
