He told the Daily Mail: "I object very strongly to the image of my grandfather being used by the BNP in such a way that it is likely to give the impression that he would have condoned or approved of the BNP platform, which is what this does.
"I can't stop any of that. The law does not allow for Churchill's family to protest against the image being used - if it did, you can rest assured that we would pursue all ends to do so.
"So I am writing to the Electoral Commission to ask them to have a look and see what they can do.
"This isn't about being anti-BNP. I rejoice that we live in a vigorous, splendid democracy where people - however odious - can launch their own political platform and put it before the country. This is about the use of the image ...
"My grandfather died a long time ago, but he would never support a party whose platform is hate. Never."
Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph reveals that Nick Griffin is seeking close ties with the Austrian far-right FPO. He wrote to the FPO leader: "We in Britain are impressed to see that you have been able to combine principled nationalism with electoral success. We are sure that this gives you a good springboard for the European elections and we hope very much that we will be able to join you in a successful nationalist block in Brussels next year."
The FPO was founded by former SS explosives expert Herbert Schweiger, who continues to be active in the party. The 85 year old, who describes his current activity as educating people in "the fundamentals of Nazism", told the Telegraph that "Our time is coming again and soon we will have another leader like Hitler ... The Jew on Wall Street is responsible for the world’s current economic crisis. It is the same now as in 1929 when 90 per cent of money was in the hands of the Jew. Hitler had the right solutions then."
Nick Soames is therefore right to protest at the misuse of Churchill's name and identity by the BNP, which continues to seek out alliances with the FPO which was founded by those involved in Hitler's Nazi regime.
