A BNP councillor will face a standards investigation after he described an Asian garage attendant as “f***ing filth” on an internet blog .
Nuneaton Coun Martyn Findley (Barpool) launched the attack because the Asian man was staring at his son who was wearing his army cadet uniform.
He posted: “How dare this piece of filth look at my son like that while he proudly wares (sic) his uniform? If he has a problem with British Army uniform there are plenty of places on gods (sic) earth that he will not see it. He should move to one of them.”
The comments have led to Nuneaton and Bedworth’s longest serving councillor, Dennis Harvey (Lab, Camp Hill) to call for Coun Findley to resign.
At this moment in time I cannot express the rage that I am feeling.
It is our pleasure twice a week when possible to pick our oldest son and his friend up from Army Cadets. An organisation that he enjoys being a part of and we are justifiably proud of him in his uniform.
It is not allowed that the lads should walk to cadets with their uniforms on open display lest they should offend the local Asians so they are told to wear civilian jackets over the top which they do even though they cover both journeys in a car.
The lads are not lazy and would happily walk but with the group of Asian males that very often found hanging around nearby it is felt wisest to transport them. One particular week comes to mind last summer when the cadets had to vacate the park and take refuge in the hut because they were being pelted with stones and could not continue with their marching practice.
After picking the lads up tonight we dropped Andrew’s friend off at home and I needed petrol so we went to the nearest garage. I filled up and went in to pay.
As soon as I rounded the door I saw an Asian man staring through the window directly at my son in his cadets uniform in the back of my car. There was no pretence and no chance that he was looking elsewhere. This was a look of pure hostility!
I was unashamedly shaking with rage as was my voice as I said, “Problem!” He said nothing and walked across the shop. How dare this piece of filth look at my son like that while he proudly wares his uniform? If he has a problem with British Army uniform there are plenty of places on gods earth that he will not see it. He should move to one of them.
I believe that there are legal reasons why I should not identify the garage or the individual and so I shall not. Needless to say I went to a different shop for the other bits and bobs that I needed and shall henceforth never be seen again at that particular garage.
