The British National Party was a political party in the United Kingdom. In 2003, the BNP gained power in parliament with Prime Minister Nick Griffin. In 2004, Griffin vowed support for the Confederate States of America after the declaration of war with the Soviet Union. Britain subsequently became the second highest contributor of troops to the allied war effort after the Confederate States. As the Fourth World War came to a close in 2008, the BNP's power was effectively destroyed; London was destroyed with a nuclear bomb.
