Pete Molloy: Hypocrite

Molloy: He’s a little average, to be honest.

Pete Molloy, BNP activist from Spennymoor in the North East would probably like to be described as a political animal. I prefer to call him a hypocrite.

Molloy, self styled leader of the BNP front organisation The British Veterans Group is happily married with kids to fellow BNP activist Amanda Molloy nee Foster, however things haven’t always gone so well for him in the past.

Originally from Liverpool, ex soldier Molloy got into a bitter dispute with his first wife over access to his children from their earlier marriage.

The legal wrangling got so bad it was to lead to Molloy becoming an activist with the Fathers 4 Justice pressure group, a fathers’ rights organisation well known for its series of high-visibility stunts and protests often in costume.

Writing about his involvement with Fathers 4 Justice on the BNP website, Molloy reveals he is the “architect” of the British National Party’s White Paper on family policy entitled “Promoting the Traditional Family Unit”.

Molloy, a loyal supporter of BNP chairman Nick Griffin hasn’t always been too keen on the BNP.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo about F4J in 2004, Molloy said “The last thing we want is people infiltrating our group to be violent. We’ve been highlighted on a BNP website which is not the sort of publicity we want to attract and we have contacted the police about it, as that’s not what we’re about. We don’t want to win this campaign by any means necessary; we don’t need mavericks coming along.”

Molloy, who received a conviction for aggravated trespass in 2004 following a F4J protest on a Liverpool police station roof, is also close friends of disgraced teacher Mark Walker who was the subject of an enquiry by the NSPCC in 2008 that uncovered a large number of emails indicating a sexual relationship with a former pupil. Walker was suspended from his job following allegations that he and a colleague had accessed adult pornography during the school day using school equipment.

Maybe Pete Molloy needs to ask his friend Mark Walker about the “Traditional Family Unit” ?
