Carlos Cortiglia, the Uruguayan BNP Candidate Running for London Mayor

Carlos Cortiglia is the British National Party (BNP) London Mayoral Elections candidate. The BNP, which is against new immigration to the UK and divulges openly racist views, sees itself represented by Cortiglia, himself an immigrant, who was born in Uruguay of Spanish and Italian ancestry and came to the United Kingdom in 1989. He has previously taken part in a televised abortion debate on RT in his capacity as press secretary and was a list candidate for the party in the assembly elections in 2004. He has worked for the BBC World Service and has been involved in several areas of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, including television, radio and Internet via London Radio Service, British Satellite News, APTN and other media.

BNP candidate Mr Cortiglia, who is originally from Uruguay, told the BBC’s Daily Politics that immigrants “who are legally entitled to be in this country” were “not the issue” for the British National Party. He said illegal immigration and bogus asylum seekers were the party’s “bone of contention” – despite its 2010 general election manifesto pledge to campaign against “the immigration invasion of our country”.

Mr Cortiglia also said the BNP “has to change” and “stop talking about 1930s ideas”.

    The London Electorate is being taken for the biggest ride in history. Carlos Cortiglia is a total fraud. Everything he has claimed to be is a lie. His claims are getting more and more general and vague. That is because not one person the British media has ever worked with him and he is not a professor or a journalist or a TV producer – only a swinger. Most voters don’t approve of men who go both ways and tell packs of lies. Do your duty amigos and expose this worm for the honour of Uruguay. There must be someone in London with relatives in Uruguay who can confirm that Cortiglia fled Uruguay ahead of his creditors and dealers and has re-invented himself.

    • Press Office says:

      Somebody who calls himself John Rivers – could be Osama bin Laden for that matter because does not have the decency of including an email address – acts with total anonimity to produce libellous and defamatory comments.

    Por qué le dan difusión al candidato de un partido xenófobo y racista como si fuera parte de un partido respetable? Por el solo hecho de que nació en América Latina? A este hombre en muchos casos le cierran los espacios mediáticos por ser parte del BNP y ustedes que informan a una comunidad de origen migrante le dan la plataforma sin ninguna crítica. Cuando menos deberían exponer el carácter racista, xenófobo y fascista del partido que el señor Cortiglia representa.

    He is a disgrace standing on BNP platform. having a birth of Uruguay, Italian ancestor, how come he sees himself “indigenous British.. wee see these short of people in London all the times. calling themselves pure English with a racist movement on other colour people when you are born with white skin and in this case he is not even born and cant pronounce London in London way!!
    get a life !
