I think J.K. Rowling must have had Nick Griffin in mind when she wrote Lord Voldemort's character. Given his 'pureblood' propaganda and ability to communicate with snakes, the similarities certainly are uncanny. The dementors of the BNP, I mean, the demeanor of the BNP, does give one an overwhelming feeling of despair. And he has been quoted as saying that Muggles "are the most appalling, insufferable people to have to live with". Oh wait, my mistake, he said that about British Muslims.
