BNP forced to change their racist constitution


The BNP today narrowly escaped contempt of court by removing the clauses in their constitution that were deemed discriminatory. The far right party had thought they could say one thing and do another but the courts ruled otherwise.

It has been a long battle to force the BNP to comply and this ruling will not be greeted well by some of its supporters who fear that Black people will join and challenge its racism from within.

Today Nick Griffin has learnt a costly lesson: political parties cannot constitutionally discriminate on the grounds of race. He and his far right cronies may look for other ways, but this avenue at least has been closed to him.
