Griffin receives Euro Payout

Matthew Collins - 15 02 12

It appears the BNP, and Nick Griffin in particular, is due a nice little windfall all at the expense of the taxpayer via The European Parliament.

The Alliance of European Nationalist Movements, of which the BNP are founder members, have been recognised by the European Parliament and will receive funding of 289,266 euros for 2012, with the possibility of more funding in future years.

The Alliance of European National Movements (AENM) was formed in Budapest on 24 October 2009 by a number of far right parties from countries in Europe.

The funds available via the European Parliament are shared out between different political blocs and their subsidiary foundations.

Some mainstream MEP’s have expressed their anger at the payments but it has been approved today.

It seems that the money will be divided amongst 3 MEPs: Nick Griffin from the BNP, Bruno Gollnisch from the French Front National and Bele Kovacs from the Hungarian Jobbik party.

Andrew Brons, BNP MEP and rival to Nick Griffin, will not get a penny.

Nick Griffin will no doubt be rubbing his sweaty hands with glee.
