Nick Griffin Steps Down As BNP Chairman

posted by: Simon Cressy | on: Monday, 21 July 2014, 20:25

Breaking news: The British National Party has announced that Nick Griffin has stepped down as party chairman and has handed the position to disgraced teacher and deputy chairman Adam Walker.

Announced on the BNP website earlier today, Griffin will now take up the new role as President of the far right party. What isn't clear at the moment is if Griffin will still hold the reins of power or if he has truly handed over the party to Walker.

With the party on the brink of self destruction, the futures of a number of BNP officials such as Clive Jefferson, Simon Darby, Patrick Harrington and Griffin's daughter Jennifer Matthys also appear to be in some doubt.

Our sources tell us that the BNP will stage manage the handover to Adam Walker, complete with an accompanying video, so expect lots of fake smiles and handshakes.

This is not thought to be a split within the ranks of the BNP and is thought to be a face saving exercise for Nick Griffin. No consultation has taken place with the BNP membership.

Hope not hate was the first organisation to report on the movements behind the scenes in the leadership of the BNP over the past few months. You can read more here and here.

Damn. Griffin was a incompetent wretch whose megalomania and control freakery brought the BNP to the brink of destruction. Had he stayed that happy event may have happened. I understand that in the past other BNP figures have had suspicions that Griffin was a state agent due his malign effect on the efficiency of assorted fascist groups. One can only hope that Walker proves as inept as Griffin.

We can only hope that this is the beginning of the end for BNP

Shuffling deckchairs on the Titanic. Griffin's milked the party of all he can and with no more $$$ to be made he's off.

So close to the destruction of the BNP, yet so far away... Lets hope that happy day comes soon (and takes out UKIP with it.)

I am sure the new one is an equally repulsive weasel.
