Richard Barnbrook has today announced that he has resigned the BNP's whip on the Greater London Assembly and is now and independent GLA member.
On a posting on his blog he states :-
"Over the last few months allegations of serious wrong doing concerning senior British National Party officials have been spread both within and outside the British National Party.
I do not know the truth or otherwise of these allegations.
These allegations have the potential to cause major political damage to the parties future electoral prospects unless they are investigated and revealed to be false.
The serious nature of these allegations are such that they must be the subject of an internal independent and transparent BNP investigation to ascertain the truth or otherwise of the allegations.
I have decided therefore that until these allegations are investigated fully by an independent panel of British National Party officers and members and are revealed as either true or false, that I cannot continue to represent the BNP in the Greater London Assembly."
After his fantastic showing in the leadership election where he picked up 23 votes out of the 4200 members eligible to vote this action isn't going to go down well with Griffin & Dowson enterprises and will lead to further chaos at the top of the BNP. With further news that more organisers have been sacked tomorrows Advisory Council meeting could be a lively affair.
