In Britain if the Tories had any brains they would take the collapse of Greece as a grand opportunity to steal much of their program out from under the UKIP. That would not only make clear the distinction between fiscally sound rule of law patriotic principles on the right and the socialist euro-zone corruption of Labour on the left but it would in addition isolate the BNP in the eyes of voters as being just a thuggish variant on the same failed socialist pit as Labour and the EU.
Parties do steal platforms and get away with it. Lenin stole his land program from the Socialist Revolutionary Party.
