The group leader of the British National Party’s district branch has been nominated to be a school governor.
Loughton Town Council put forward Pat Richardson as a candidate for Hereward Primary School at its meeting on Tuesday evening. The decision was made without the knowledge of the Colebrook Lane based school who will now have to consider Mrs Richardson’s case as a potential governor.
Mrs Richardson became one of the BNP’s first district councillors in 2004 and was elected to Loughton Town Council last year. She is a high profile member of the nationalist party after appearing in a Channel Four documentary in July 2008 discussing attitudes to Muslims in Britain, and serves as the BNP’s group leader on Epping Forest District Council.
Chair of governors at Hereward Raymond Warner said: “We’re looking for somebody who’s got a range of skills. I’m hoping that politics in any shape or form won’t come into it.”
