BNP candidate denies racism

A BNP candidate has appeared in court charged with racially aggravated harrassment.

Tameside Magistrates heard that Roy West, 44, of Glenmore Grove, Dukinfield is accused of using racially aggravated words against his German neighbour on August 22 this year.

He denies the charges.

Defending, Kevin Nicholas said that West is alleged to have said "Remember Dunkirk" during an argument with his neighbour.

Mr Nicholas, who disputed whether the words were racist, asked for the trial to be heard out of the Tameside area because of West’s connections with the BNP in Tameside.

"I’m not suggesting any integrity issues, but Mr West is a BNP candidate for this region," he said. "He tells me that on the bench in Tameside there are some Labour councillors or candidates. He has had difficulties with one of them in the past. We would ask the court not to hear this at Tameside, but at a different court."

The court took note of West’s concerns and asked for the case to be heard before the Manchester district judge who comes to the court on a weekly basis.

West will remain on police bail, on the condition that he does not contact his neighbour or the neighbour’s partner either directly or indirectly. A hearing on 12 November will set a date for his trial at Tameside Magistrates’ Court.

West stood as the BNP candidate for Dukinfield during May’s local elections.

He came second behind Councillor Brian Wild with 734 votes.

Because the site is one of the most daft around and no one with more than two brain cells wastes any time by taking it seriously.

I agree there are some posts on there that are very daft but there are also some serious ones and the last time I looked the site counter displayed 17,000 posts.

That's 17,000 people who have been exposed to the vile Griffin Speeches on their TV broadcast.

I doubt very much that most of their site traffic is comimg from rank and file BNP supporters either.

And let's not forget that Thurrock is the seat to be fought by Griffin at the next election.

They might be fools but at our peril if we dismiss them as idiots.

Videos of swearing, nazi imagery and nude photos of Celebrities like Lily Allen, surprise surprise can all be found here under the name of young british nationalism.
