BNP leader Nick Griffin treated us all this week by hilariously whingeing about members of his party facing “discrimination”.
To anyone who has been away from the world this week, a list of BNP members was posted on the internet. The confused flag-wavers first blamed a disgruntled ex-activist for the leak, but now say it’s all probably Labour’s fault.
Moaning Griffin claimed it would be illegal to sack BNP members from their jobs for party membership, saying: “In the highly unlikely event of one of our many thousands of members being exposed to their employers and suffering discrimination as a result, a substantial compensation pay out will be on the cards.”
Tragically, the Oxford grad, who sadly lives in Wales, could be right. Professor Hugh Collins, law head at the London School of Economic and Political Science, thought it would be “clearly unfair” to dismiss someone “just for being a member of a political party”. Surely workers in responsible jobs shouldn’t be in the BNP because they can’t serve people indiscriminately?
But what I really don’t get is why a group of people who dub themselves “British Lions” don’t have the courage of their convictions? They seem only too eager to hide behind a veil of anonymity rather than stand up for their beliefs. Listen to those “lions” roar.
