Nick Griffin abandons BNP press conference under hail of eggs

Demonstrators shouting 'Off our streets, Nazi scum' force BNP leader to flee for the safety of his car

Griffin discovers he isn't as popular as he preciously believed
Nick Griffin was forced to abandon a press conference outside parliament today after protesters pelted him with eggs. The demonstrators shouted "Off our streets, Nazi scum" and chased him down the street to his car. Griffin, who was elected an MEP for north-west England on Sunday, was bundled into his car by his bodyguards and quickly driven off.

Having arrived for the press conference, on College Green in front of parliament, just after 2.30pm with fellow BNP MEP Andrew Brons, he began by attacking articles from today's newspapers criticising him and his party. He had been speaking for only a few minutes when the protesters appeared, chanting and waving banners reading "Stop the fascist BNP".

The moment of impact - and Darby looking suspicious behind Griffin
They threw eggs at Griffin, whose bodyguards quickly took him away through the crowd. The demonstrators kicked and hit his car with their placards before cheering as he drove off.

Weyman Bennett, the protest organiser and national secretary of Unite Against Fascism, said he believed it was important to stand up to the BNP.

"The majority of people did not vote for the BNP. They did not vote at all," he said. "The BNP was able to dupe them into saying that they had an answer to people's problems. They presented themselves as a mainstream party. The reality was, because the turnout was so low, they actually got elected."

Yum-yum. More please...
Sarah Kavanagh, the Public and Commercial Services Union's national co-ordinator for its "make your vote count" campaign, was another of the protesters. "Britain in two places has sent the far right to be with Europe. They clearly don't speak on behalf of the community and their views are abhorrent," she said.

Griffin later accused the three main parties of organising the protest to stop his party getting its message across. Griffin claims the BNP is not racist, even though it restricts membership to "indigenous British ethnic groups deriving from the class of 'Indigenous Caucasian'". Asked yesterday how he could tell who qualified as British, Griffin said: "You just look and you just know."

Brons, the MEP for the the Yorkshire and Humber region, told Sky news indigenous Britons were "the people of this country who were descended from people who were in this country, say, from the period after the second world war, when the country was relatively homogenous."

All mainstream parties united in condemning the BNP after the party won two seats in the European parliament. David Cameron, the Conservative leader, said yesterday the result was "desperately depressing" and the main parties had to win back those who had voted for the far-right party.

"What the mainstream parties have to do is prove their worth – get on the doorstep, explain to people how we are going to take up their concerns, how we are going to respond to their issues," he said. "That is the way to beat these dreadful people."

Peter Hain, the newly appointed Welsh secretary, said: "It's a shameful stain on Britain that we now have racists and fascists representing our country. It is vital that everyone now isolates and confronts the BNP and works with United Against Fascism to defeat them."

The BNP is to hold a press conference in Manchester tomorrow.

For a while now, the "Libertarian" movement have been threatening to "come after" your little grouping and it has now begun.


Word to the wise: Derek Draper told the "Libertarians", that he would "Crush them like a grape" and yet where is he now?

Another "Libertarian" Guido Fawkes was sent some E-Mail addresses, and of course by now, you know the rest.

This grouping consists of no moronic B.N.P. types, and if they do come after the "Anti Nazi Movement" head on, then your in for no little battle.

Good Luck. - You may well need it.

That first picture's a gem. Cyclops resembles the rubber underpants' wearing ex-public schoolboy that he is.

Is that Blondie in pictures two and three?

On to Manchester!

Remember Blair Peach?


Stink bombs are really cool at breaking up press interviews, and they don't even make a sound, especially those lovely small capsules you can prick and throw, sold from joke shops near you!

There's this excellent recipe that uses 100% natural non-toxic, non-harmful substances, so throwing them would not be against the law, and yet, Griffin and co. would have to move on to avoid the bad stink!


lock up all white supremacists said...

"Remember Blair Peach?"

That's it, you fascists really do enjoy racially murdering non-white people.

You BNP thugs are all scum who deserve to be locked up for life in jail without parole for being racist, and the racist death threats say it all!

AMY said...

Yes, we do remember Blair Peach, you evil neo-nazi bnp cunt glorfying a racist murder!

The sick and evil Blair Peach remarks show just how depraved the BNP and their cowardly supporters are. The heroic veterans of World War II must be sick to the pit of their stomachs when they see how Britain has elected such disgusting evil lowlifes to serve in the european parliament.

I really expect such a sick and twisted comment from a BNP member, threatening to commit racist murders.

The sooner the public fully turn against the BNP, the better.

I'm a pacificist and even though sicko comments like that do get my blood boiling.

I'd have to be physically held back if I happened to stumble across the bastard who wrote that comment goosesteppin down the street.

Wish we could trace the IP address of the person who made that vile Blair Peach comment and find out where he lived, to report him to the authorities.

I loved the way Griffin scuttled off surrounded by his so-called "security" after a couple of eggs were lobbed at him.

I don't think there's much hope for the "Master Race". LOL LOL LOL

Look on the Bright Side - If its panic by Cycops Thugs when eggs are thrown whay happens when some serviceman returning from the wars "frags" him ?

Personally I think that the custurd pie will do more damage to cyclops than any number of eggs etc. will achieve.

as much as i dislike the bnp and what they stand for,i also believe in freedom of speech and to say what YOU think and feel,so what the bnp got a couple of seats,they have very few followers and are a minority,but if people got out there and voted they'd never of took them seats,throwing eggs sets a great example of what a civilised people we are,and we wonder why the youth are like they are,take a look inside yourselves, mob violence won't change or solve a thing,we don't all share the same view and thoughts and you can't make people,like nick griffin can't.the sooner people stop rising to the bait,the sooner we can see an end to partys like the bnp.
