Name: Carlos Cortiglia
Party: British National Party
I’ve lived in London since 1989 and I have worked for the BBC and then at the Commonwealth Office. I am of Italian descent which, I guess, makes me the most ‘cosmopolitan’ candidate standing for London Mayor in 2012.
I was outraged to find some immigrant communities refusing to respect the British people and their way of life so I joined the British National Party because I want to preserve the traditions, freedoms and identity of the country that has been so good to me and my family.
London is a diverse city and although there are some benefits, Multiculturalism has clearly led to division and confrontation instead of integration. The shocking looting and rioting last August is a prime example of this failed policy.
London needs a strong Mayor who is fair and decisive with the vision to make this great city of ours dynamic, safe and prosperous. I am that man!
