Kevin Alistair Bryan is a British politician and chairman of the British National Front since April 2017,[1] a position he previously held between 2013 and 2015. He was deputy chairman, under Ian Edward,[2] a far-right political party for whites only.[3] He describes himself as "a racial nationalist".[4]

Bryan was previously a member of the British National Party for whom he contested local elections.[5] He was that party's organiser in Newark-on-Trent and in Rochdale. Following a period of disagreement with the policies of the BNP's leader, Nick Griffin, he left the party in 2010 and joined the National Front, and become its deputy chairman a few months later.[4]

He has been a candidate for the NF in national and local elections in the Rossendale area.[6]
