BNP boss Nick Griffin’s national socialist fixations have been showing again, this time evidenced by his junket to Moscow yesterday for a collective bleating session about the Greek government’s crackdown on his new-found pals in the nazi Golden Dawn party.
It appears that not everything was to his taste, however, as he couldn’t resist tweeting that he had been on a “horrible overnight flight.” It would be good to know who paid for the exalted Leader to be so reduced to such discomfort. Not him, we bet!
What was the Griffaloon doing just west of the Urals? We thought we’d let an internal page on the website of convicted Italian fascist terrorist Roberto Fiore explain. After all, it’s from the horse’s mouth (no offence to horses intended).
The Italian fascist statement says with customary pomposity: "On November 27, Russky Vestnik (The Russian Messenger) will hold a conference in the Slavinskaja Hall, Moscow, on the theme of “the limitation of freedoms in Western Europe.”
“The conference is organised by Russian experts and will host speeches from European politicians such as Roberto Fiore, a former MEP and leader of Forza Nuova; Nicholas Griffin, MEP and leader of the British National Party and the Greek Golden Dawn MP Matthaiopoulos”. It appears they – both Fiore and Griffin – did not know Matthaiopoulos’ has a first name, Artemis.
That was left out as was the fact that young Artemis has a certain measure of hardcore nazi “form”, not least the fact that he was also a “punk” musician who once sang about burning down the Greek parliament.
His band, for which he featured as bass guitarist, was the charmingly named Pogrom and was notorious for vicious racist lyrics. Among the songs that this mob performed was one titled “Auschwitz”, which contains – inter alia – the lines “F*** Wiesenthal. F*** Anne Frank. F*** the whole tribe of Abraham. The Star of David makes me vomit.”
As the Times reported last year” “The band’s best-known song is called “Speak Greek or Die”, an overt threat to immigrants coming to Greece, with the lyrics: “You come to our country, you don’t have any work, you’re starving, you bums, and you eat children, you speak Russian, you speak Albanian, but now you will speak proper Greek. Speak Greek or die, speak Greek or die.”
Matthaiopoulos’ new career may be seen as surprising as one song in his repertoire called “A Stroll in Parliament” includes the lyrics: “I’m going to go into the Parliament and I’ll burn it all down.”
Matthaiopoulos, incidentally, was the second nazi raver to warm a bench for Golden Dawn in the Greek parliament. The other is the thug George Germenis, who goes by the stage name Kaiadas; after the chasm where Ancient Spartans were said to have hurled their defective babies.
This “hero” led a black-clad crew of steroid-inflated Golden Dawn louts to an open-air market near Athens to smash the stalls of unlicensed migrant peddlers in September 2012. In an earlier incident, he was arrested for punching a 12-year-old girl.
Matthaiopoulos is reported to be a “close friend” of the daughter of the porcine Golden Dawn leader Nikolaos Michaloliakos, whose wife is also in Parliament, and who is currently in a prison cell, facing a charge sheet that includes belonging to a criminal organisation, murder, extortion, and involvement in the disappearance of up to 100 immigrants.
It was alongside such intellectual luminaries as the nazi Matthaiopoulos, the fascist Fiore and the Russian nationalists of Russky Vestnik that the BNP’s bloated and bumptious boss sat to consider “The problems arising from the promotion of a law which criminalises 'homophobia', thus limiting individual and family rights and the repression and persecution of political movements inspired by nationalist, populist and Christian beliefs.”
“In this sense,” the Italian fascists’ statement went on, “Greece is especially important and the case of Golden Dawn will be considered in detail.”
Other items on the agenda were “The prosecution of revisionist historians and researchers for so-called “crimes against history’” and “World Health Organisation directives asking national governments to introduce sex education classes from primary school, thus justifying de facto paedophile behaviours” .The mind can only boggle at the pearls of wisdom this agenda will have generated.
As the BNP’s star rapidly fades and Griffin faces personal and party wipe-out by UKIP, he is returning to what he knows best: unashamed, unapologetic extremism and finding comfort surrounded by Europe’s most extreme fascists and nazis.
We just hope Fiore and Matthaiopoulos didn’t order a curry…

English Defence League (EDL) founder and former leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon has admitted mortgage fraud offences.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiring with others to obtain a mortgage by misrepresentation from the Abbey and Halifax building societies.
The 30-year-old, also known as Tommy Robinson, committed the offences in 2009.
Robinson's address and the court where he appeared cannot be named for legal reasons.
He was warned he could face a prison term when he is sentenced in the new year.
Earlier this year, Robinson was jailed for 10 months for using someone else's passport to travel to the USA.
He left the EDL last month, citing increasingly racist elements within the group.
Yaxley-Lennon founded the EDL in 2009 after five Muslim men demonstrated in Luton against a homecoming parade by the Royal Anglian Regiment.

A drunken EDL supporter roughed up a Church of England bishop at a public rally in Yorkshire.
The Bishop of Pontefract was manhandled at what was scheduled as a peace rally in Wakefield town centre, West Yorkshire.
Bishop Tony Robinson had just come from mass to address 100 people at a march against the anti-Islam group when he was accosted
According to witnesses, the intruder was aged around 30, dressed in an English Defence League sweatshirt and reeked of booze.
"It was shocking," said eyewitness Sally Kincaid. "The bishop was just talking and suddenly this big guy came out from behind and started shouting about grooming. It was all quite surreal and he looked drunk.
"A few people got around him and he was handed over to the police."
Bishop Robinson told IBTimes UK that efforts had been made in the past to reach out to the EDL but had failed.
"They are not always keen to debate in a non-confrontational way. It seems to me that we should talk with people like the EDL to find out why they are angry and we have tried to do that with the EDL," he said.
"This showed there are people who just want to shout obscenities."
About 100 EDL supporters descended on Wakefield for an event that was opposed by a community coalition. A counter-demonstartion of around the same size was staged by an umbrella group called 'We are Wakefield.' Police made 11 arrests including some for breach of the peace.
Assistant Chief Constable Mark Milsom said. "The arrests we made were focused on preventing persons provoking trouble. Our swift action ensured that the genuine protesters and the Christmas shoppers were kept safe and feeling safer."

Just hearing that the EDL demo today in Wakefield has been a complete disaster for the struggling EDL.
Only 150 members of the far right group managed to crawl out of the pub to visit the West Yorkshire city.
Once there, the organisers managed to forget to bring a megaphone that actually worked, so only a handful of people could hear the usual drivel being preached by usual faces.
Most of the local people seemed keen to ignore the tiny EDL demo, they had far more important issues on their mind like Xmas shopping.

Over the years we have witnessed numerous fallouts and leadership battles within The National Front.
Who could possibly forget the infighting in 1989 that witnessed two rival factions of the NF stand against each other in the Vauxhall By Election with both sides trading insults and punches at the election count.
The modern day National Front is no different and is comparable to a cheaply made television soap opera, lots of drama but with very little substance.
So it should come as no surprise that there is a new internal battle erupting within the party, splitting the NF into two halves.
One faction, led by the former NF chairman Ian Edward has seized control of the official National Front website, changing the hosting company, removing most of the content and changing the websites passwords.
Ian Edward resigned his position as NF Chairman earlier in the year with Kevin Bryan being chosen to be the new leader of the party.
Bryan claims that Ian Edward along with Bernadette Jaggers and Steve Rowland have been causing as much trouble as possible for the party.
Edward is still officially registered as Party Chairman and Nominating Officer with the Electoral Commission and has refused to remove himself from the registered documents.
The faction led by Kevin Bryan have submitted new paperwork naming Bryan as the new chairman and Aberdeen's Dave McDonald as Nominating Officer, yet The Electoral Commission have refused to accept the changes until Ian Edward signs the relevant forms.
Steve Rowland has also been keeping himself busy in the background, ringing around the various members, attempting to drum up support for the Ian Edward group.
Edwards group is claiming that it has the support of six branches yet this figure has been disputed by Kevin Bryan.
Time will tell which group will wrestle control of the NF, we hope it is a long drawn out battle.

Two far right extremists from the EDL have been jailed this week for petrol bombing a Gloucester mosque in a revenge attack following the brutal death of Drummer Lee Rigby.
Clive Ceronne, a 37-year-old security guard was jailed for four and a half years for the attack with his protege 20 year old Ashley Juggins, receiving a three and a half year jail term.
The two men drove to the Masjid-E-Noor mosque following evening prayers in June and waited until 12:50 am in Cerrone's car.
Juggins poured out a can of petrol in the entranceway of the mosque and set it alight using a burning envelope.The pair then made their escape in the car as the blaze began to take hold.
Fortunately, a passing motorist managed to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher as local residents attempted in vain to fight the fire with buckets of water.
The quick thinking motorist has never been identified or traced by the police.
Jailing the men the judge told them 'Lee Rigby was killed 27 days prior to this offence and although it has not been openly declared by either of your advocates as a reason for this attack I do not regard it as a co-incidence that it should follow so soon after his death.
'Ninety-nine per cent of the population of this country, irrespective of their colour or creed, will have been horrified by the circumstances surrounding that tragic killing.
'After his death there were a series of arson attacks on mosques across the country - Grimsby, Harlow, Haywards Heath, Luton. Those attacks were termed hate crimes and I have no doubt this offence was driven by hate.'
The judge told Cerrone "I have no doubt that you have an enduring hatred for followers of Islam and you are quite unwilling or unable to differentiate between the tiny minority who have extremist views and the vast majority of law abiding citizens who, for instance, worship at the Gloucester mosque.
'In short, your views are or were equally extreme as the various persons you sought revenge against.
'Such extremist views when they lead to activity of this kind destabilise the community, breed distress and very often destroy bridge building. This is precisely what extremists want.
'In short, you played into their hands to provide propaganda to be used against the population at large.'
Apart from being a member of the EDL, Cerrone is also listed as being the Gloucester contact for The New British Union, the tinpot group setup by former Scottish BNP organiser Gary Raikes.
Ceronne, from Gloucester, and Juggins from Cheltenham, both pleaded guilty to arson being reckless whether life was endangered on June 18.

The demise of the English Defence League (EDL) was being predicted after a march by the far-right group in Exeter drew only 200 people.
A counter-demonstration against the EDL being in the city was attended by four times as many people.
The low turnout was heralded as a sign that a terminal decline of the anti-Islam group is underway.
Ahead of the march, new chairman Tim Ablitt told IBTimes UK the event in Exeter would show how well the EDL was adapting to life following the resignation of founder and leader Tommy Robinson.
Devon and Cornwall police arrested four people at the event. Officers held two men on suspicion of being drunk and two other suspects were found to be carrying offensive weapons.
Matthew Collins of anti-fascism group Hope not Hate, said the EDL had run out of things to say.
No EDL spokesman has emerged
Collins told IBTimes UK: "They had a short lived peak following the killing and now they are back to the sort of turn-out they were getting before that. The organisation is in terminal decline and the cause of it is boredom."
Exeter Together organised the well-attended counter-demonstration. Spokeswoman Hannah Packham said: "Exeter has united in saying that we love the rich diversity of the city, which helps to make it the great place it is.
"Our message is clear: the EDL with their racist, divisive politics are not welcome in Exeter."

Many of our readers will be aware of the name of John "Snowy" Shaw.
Shaw is the violent crack addict who left animals on his farm to die in agonising pain while he was out drinking and taking drugs with his friends in the "Infidels", the breakway group from the EDL.
The last time he was seen, earlier this year, Shaw was telling half a dozen of his followers that he wanted to take his organising "undeground" so that he could strike against the state. He then went to the pub.
As well as promoting his government-sponsored fantasies, Shaw is a well known Jew hater and Holocaust denier. He has attached himself to the cause of Ulster Loyalism at a time when Ulster Loyalists are bitterly trying to drive drug dealers and fascist fantasists out of their communities.
How the perenially unemployed and drug addled moron that is Shaw manages to finance so many trips to Northern Ireland is probably not going to trouble the next winner of Mastermind.
Shaw used to like to run around his farm in North Yorkshire dressed in combat fatigues whilst shooting at rabbits and pretending that he was some kind of paramilitary hard man. He missed his opportunity to actually serve Queen and Country in Northern Ireland, when his Mother told him to stay at home as it was too dangerous for little Johnny to go over the water.
Today, Shaw turned up in Woolwich to lay a wreath in memory of Drummer Lee Rigby, the British soldier murdered on the streets of London earlier this year.
Shaw was part of a group of drunks, wasters and racist thugs who were in Woolwich under the banner of the South East Alliance (SEA) and English Volunteer Force (EVF).
Shaw, who has never seen any military service let alone a day's hard work, laid a wreath outside of Woolwich army barracks on behalf of the "officers and members" of the "Ulster Defence Union", a group apparently detached from the mainstream Ulster Defence Association (UDA) mainly on account of their association with people the calibre of Shaw.
What a disgrace people like Shaw are. Shame on them. Shame on them for their racism, their grief tourism and their sick opportunism.

Many, many people in the UK and across the world have donated to the disaster appeal to bring some relief to the people devastated by Typhoon Haiyan that brought death and destruction to the Philippines last week.
Even in times of domestic hardship, Britons still have enough heart to realise that there are people elsewhere in the world worse off than themselves. The majority of people who have donated will never visit or have visited the devastated country.
In the racist British National Party (BNP), the idea of donating to such causes appears to be a constant anathema.
That is unless you are Thomas Imrie, the close friend of BNP leader Nick Griffin, who despite the racist company he keeps, regularly visits Asia to pay for sex. Yes, despite being a violent, racist thug, Imrie is also a notorious sex-tourist.
Maybe it is his conscience, maybe it is self interest, but Imrie has been asking his fellow fascists to donate money for water tablets that he can deliver to a family he knows in the Philippines. You can tell by the response of his comrades, that rather than do this, they themselves would rather make disgusting remarks about Jews.
One person that Imrie has not asked to donate will be Essex based racist Mick Braun who once wrote about throwing acid in the face of an Asian he did not like.
So here we have it; two close associates of Nick Griffin, two senior members of the BNP, both vulgar racists but only one with a guilty conscience perhaps.
People who wish to, may donate to the British Red Cross appeal here:

We often raise concerns about members of the BNP being allowed near impressionable young minds.
Never mind the racism, it is what these idiots do to our language we've got to really be on the look out for.
