Labour win Lancashire as BNP loses council council seat
The British National Party has lost its only county council seat, as it plunged to last place in defence of a division in Lancashire.
BNP candidate Paul Robinson polled 358 votes in Padiham and Burnley West, a seat won by the party's Sharon Wilkinson in 2009.
The party still has two borough councillors in England, one each on Charnwood and Pendle councils. Labour claimed the Lancashire County Council seat today by a majority of almost 1,000, beating the Conservatives into second place and the Liberal Democrats into third.
"I was very angry in the way in which left-wing political activists and a minority of gay activists are working with left-wing judges to use the Human Rights Act to persecute ordinary people, especially Christians.
"I most definitely didn’t post a menacing message and there’s nothing inciteful [sic]. I said that we’d be holding a demonstration on behalf of everybody including gay people to decide who they have and don’t have in their homes. I don’t think that could be described as menacing.
"I only regret that we haven’t so far found the address of the judge who made that outrageous judgement because when we do we’ll be looking at a demonstration somewhere near that."
Police watching home of gay couple after address published
Police are watching the home of Michael Black and John Morgan nearHuntingdon, Cambridgeshire after Nick Griffin allegedly published their address on Twitter and called for a demonstration to be held outside the house.
A gay couple whose address was allegedly tweeted by Nick Griffin have hit out at the far-right politician today.
Michael Black, 64, called the politician an "idiot" on BBC Breakfast. He said:
Certainly the public response to the incident, when it happened two-and-a-half years ago, and again in the last 24 hours, has been overwhelmingly in support of our stand against discrimination so hopefully that will mean the vast majority of the people in the country will just see what an idiot Nick Griffin is and reject his views.
BNP leader not concerned police are investigating tweets
The BNP leader Nick Griffin told ITV News he was not concerned that Cambridgeshire Police are looking into complaints about comments he posted on Twitter.
Why should I be? If they're daft enough to persecute me for making a stand against the avalanche of leftist persecution of ordinary folk and their traditional freedoms, then the rotten, anti-Christian system they defend will be the loser.
