    BNP Crisis As Nick Griffin Faces Jail Over Whites-Only Policy

    From The Sunday Times
    January 10, 2010

    David Leppard

    The British National party is facing a crisis in the run-up to the general election after it emerged that Nick Griffin, its leader, could be jailed over its illegal “whites only” membership policy.

    Whitehall officials believe Griffin will be unable to comply in time with a court order forcing him to change the BNP’s constitution to admit Asians, blacks and members of other ethnic minorities.

    They say the BNP’s membership is not due to vote on the constitutional change until after the court deadline expires towards the end of this month. Trevor Phillips, head of the government’s equalities watchdog, which won the legal ruling three months ago, has instructed his lawyers to be ready to ask the court to impose crippling sanctions, including a heavy fine or possible jail term against Griffin and Simon Darby, the BNP’s deputy leader.

    If successful, the move could paralyse the right-wing party at a time when many at Westminster believe it is on the verge of winning its first seat in parliament with the support of disillusioned former Labour and Tory voters.

    Officials question whether the head of a political party who has been imprisoned, fined or has had his assets sequestrated could continue to be its leader.

    “The BNP is very much Nick Griffin’s party,” said one official. “Were he forced to stand down three months before an election, then what are the prospects for the party? He could be replaced by someone who was much more hardcore. They would potentially be in disarray.”

    The legal action began last year when the Equality and Human Rights Commission issued county court proceedings against Griffin, Darby and Tanya Lumby, another senior BNP official.

    The watchdog argued that the BNP’s constitution was unlawful because it restricted membership to particular ethnic groups and those whose skin colour is white.

    Last October Judge Paul Collins agreed and awarded costs against the party. Griffin was forced to order a freeze on membership applications. The court gave him until January 28 to persuade the party to change its constitution and allow non-whites to join.

    However, Griffin is unlikely to be able to deliver the change in time.

    Ironically, jews, who are the most likely to subvert the party and its message, have always been allowed to join.

    Of course any law can be made enacting any sort of tyranny. It's up to the people to judge the law, not the condemned.

    Most likely to undermine their goals and efforts, but I don't know really what anyone's intent really would be.

    So much for British fair play and democracy!

    This is political manouvering pure and simple, designed to eliminate political opposition prior to an election.

    It has bugger all to do with black and white faces, and more to do with protecting 'jobs for the boys' and retaining the odious staus quo in Whitehall and Westminster.

    So Britain, you think you're free?

    Think again!

    This will be definitely be a set-back for BNP. However, it doesn't necessarily mean they will lose members or votes, rather the contrary.

    Are you sure? I remember that their constitution said caucasoids only, which would, at least at large, exclude Jews.


    However, I always find it weird that the oh so important 'democracy' gets 'protected' through means that are so totally undemocratic, that one has to wonder when people eventually understand this oxymoron.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Velvet, the BNP have been actively courting Jews for some time, I'm sorry to say

    This is why there's no negative mention of them to be found anywhere - a far cry from when John Tyndall was in charge - and could also explain why they're so anti-Muslim (which I'm not criticising). Furthermore, if you read their website forum there are some Jewish posters, which indicates they are BNP members as I believe it's a "members-only" forum.

    Bernhard you are absolutely right, my friend!
