Nick Griffin: plying himself with beer for years

You may have heard how the BNP and EDL are ther great protectors of young children in this country. However, it appears they are as selective as they are self appointed.

Yesterday, eight men were jailed in Derby for plying 15-year old girls with drinks, drugs and gifts in exchange for sex.

Like all grooming cases, we condemn this abhorrent behaviour. We do not care who the perpretrators are-what colour, race etc, etc. It’s just right that justice is done.

So why were the BNP and EDL not out in numbers yesterday for the sentencing of Stefan Godfrey, Anthony Lambert, John Shaw, Mark Adaouri, Ijaz Ahmend, Colin Simpson, Ian Yeoman and David Shardlow?

The men, with an average age of 42, were sentenced each for up to seven years, yet there’s not been a word from either the BNP or the EDL about this.

Is it that they just do not care when it does not suit them?
