Gay couple hit out at Nick Griffin over tweets

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.
