BNP leader Nick Griffin faces being axed as a Euro MP as he fights to avoid bankruptcy over his party’s soaring cash crisis.

He is among top officials thought to be personally liable for the racist group’s £700,000 debts – which it admits it cannot pay.

Anyone made bankrupt is legally barred from being an MP or Euro MP.

The BNP’s money woes were laid bare by ex-chief fundraiser James Dowson in a letter seen by the Mirror.

Mr Dowson told North-East printers who produced its newsletter that the finances were like “a shipwreck”.

Sorry, can’t resist this.

Does this mean there is a party with worse finances than Labour?

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people.

Great news. As for Watchmans snide comment, the BNP debt works out at nearly £60 per member, Labours debt is only £150 per head. Err, that cant be right, forget I wrote.

Sigh. Yet another ‘the BNP won’t be here this time next week’ article. How many of these have been written in the last few years?

More wishful thinking and celebration, not proper analysis.

Well done, I guess this will be the first time the Psuedo-Leftist totalitarian Kleptocracy has managed to sink a political opponent with litigation.

If you want to gloat over a victory, shouldn’t it be a democratic victory through the ballot box?

If you want to abandon democracy, fair enough, you may find there are consequences for the left in this as well.

Let’s hope it’s true. Meanwhile, because of reading this thread, I just clicked on their website and they seem to be carrying on as normal.
Talking about their conference in South Derbyshire in December that they say will be:

a spectacular combination of political speeches, audio-visual displays, training, policy debates, stalls and entertainment, all within a four star venue complete with restaurant, bar and a whole range of suitable accommodation to fit your needs!

If this doesn’t take place, then that will be good for everyone, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

“If you want to gloat over a victory, shouldn’t it be a democratic victory through the ballot box?”

I think that was at the last general election, don’t you remember?

Or “Marmite” as they’re sometimes known.

“Let’s hope it’s true. Meanwhile, because of reading this thread, I just clicked on their website and they seem to be carrying on as normal.”

Well, yeah – they’re hardly going to advertise the fact that they are in financial meltdown. When it gets too much to cover-up they’ll probably take a vote on who to blame: the Jews, the liberal elite, the Muslims, political correctness gawn maaaad… or, more likely, all of the above. Plus ca change…

Ahhhh……”the wheels of justice doth slowly turn but surly turn they do! A splendid piece of journalism in my opinion.
