Were the National Front racist in 1970s for saying elderly old English ladies in London did not like having black newcomers live next door ?

cooking strange smelling food and playing loud Rastafarian music

Left wingers don't go on about how racist they were without referring to the bit of the question after '1970s'

Update:

Did none of their neighbours support the NF?

If you loathe the English working classes, please say so

    The NF were considered racist in the 1970s is kind of all you need to know. The provincial stereotype little old lady is something of a fiction. London was interracial for long before the 70s.

    It may be comical but it is also true, they didn't. They can it true but idiots call everything racist so who cares?

    As Enoch Powell said in 1968, elderly English ladies didn't like it when most of their white neighbours had moved out to be replaced by immigrants with a culture that was alien to them. But they wouldn't have liked it if a chav NF-supporting family had moved in next door because they would have been just as alien.

    Yeah...I remember the NF - or a few of them, anyway, who (after a few puffs of a spliff) acted like giddy nonces, rubbing their hands over half-caste girls IN the seventies in discos. The kind of 'NF' members who liked to chant bollocks at footy matches but that's all they did, with the black kids laughing at them and more often than not taking ciggies off them and when they were on their own, taking them to their houses where their families would be waiting 'Oh! Is this your mate, Adolf, then?' Most 'National Front racists' didn't know what the feck they were...their parents still hated Germans! It was just a fashion - like boys camping up or girls acting like dykes. That was yer 70's. Then along came the punks - who loved Rastas.
