The British National Party has shown no sign of making a comeback in this week's local elections and is down to just two elected district councillors.
But rather than build on this success the party has imploded over the last five years.
Griffin was declared bankrupt earlier this year and membership has plummeted, leaving the party short of money and campaigning capability.
BNP London organiser Steve Squire recently told BuzzFeed that his party was losing votes to UKIP and attacked Nigel Farage's party for having a racist immigration policy: "We don't pick on white people from Europe: we don't care where you come from, black or Asian or white, we don't want you. We think that is a non-racist position."
Squire also admitted that the BNP's future may lie outside mainstream electoral politics.
Far-right splinter groups such as Britain First, founded by a former BNP official, provide a home for many former BNP supporters.
