Nick Griffin's mother-in-law says the BNP leader is a 'racist'

Mrs Cook, 72, is the mother of Griffin’s wife Jackie. She has described her son-in-law as a “work-shy pretender” who put his politics ahead of his family. She said: “Nick is still a racist. He still holds those views – always has. He wants to see an all-white Britain, but that will never happen... he’s living in the Dark Ages."

Jackie Griffin, 46, met her husband in the late 1970s whilst he was a Cambridge student. Mrs Cook said that her daughter claimed Griffin would turn his back on the far right, but when they married in 1985 he remained active and she became the main breadwinner.

“She did everything – brought money into the house and raised the children. Nick played at his silly politics but never really contributed financially,” she told the Sunday Mirror.

Mrs Cook, who lives near Chester, added: “He pretends to be a man of the people, but the truth is he hasn’t done an honest day's work in his life. My daughter is a nurse and has always had a full-time job. She was working 12-hour shifts even when their children were babies.

Griffin lives with his wife and four children in a remote farmhouse outside Welshpool in Powys.

Mrs Cook, a widow, said her son-in-law had toned down his views in recent years. She said: “Nick’s not half as bad as he used to be, but he still believes black people and Muslims have no place in this country. He’s been forced to change his views now he’s in [the EU] Parliament, but whether that’s out of want or necessity ... you decide.”

They are all the same - exactly the same - wonder who Nick has been having it off with all these years because that is the other common trait - real family values!

So the Porcine One/The Oinker has never worked...

That does not surprise me - he does not live in the real world!

How about 'parasite' as he has lived solely off Jackie's earnings and donations from his hardline extremist friends all over the UK and world (including you, Gaddafi) and still he begs and begs for more from his organisation (I won't say party, they are no normal political party in the same way as even bloody Ukip are)
