As you will have heard, a list of members has been leaked by a disgruntled former party member. Nick Griffin, chief racist, was on tv this morning – it downright ruined my breakfast. In his interview he claimed the media had worked hard to portray his members as northerners wearing cloth caps. So we have another minority group the BNP are quite openly targeting.
I was also interested to hear him call the Labour Government totalitarian, for banning police officers from being members of the far-right party. Moments later he used new legislation to defend himself – the equalities act, which prevents discrimination in the workplace on political grounds.
