Griffin As Disgusting As Ever

Matthew Collins - 19 10 12

Following Nick Griffin’s comments on Twitter last night you would have thought he might have wanted a bit of peace and quiet today ?

For those that missed all the action last night, Nick Griffin’s Twitter account was temporarily suspended after he made a number of postings regarding a gay couple at the centre of a landmark legal case.

Michael Black and John Morgan had just won a ruling that they had been discriminated against by a B&B owner who refused to let them stay in a double room at their premises in Berkshire because they were a gay couple.

Griffin printed the couples address on Twitter calling for a demonstration outside their house and a visit from a “British Justice Team”

This created a huge show of revulsion directed at Griffin and the BNP and a large number of Twitter users reported his comments to the police.

Overnight Twitter closed down his account and removed the posting that included the couples address.

Griffin’s actions are all over the national media, which I’m fairly sure was the purpose of his actions in the first place.

Griffin told BBC 5 Live this morning that he believed discrimination was a “fundamental human right”.

He continued “I said we will be holding a demonstration in Huntingdon. It doesn’t necessarily mean outside their house.”

Cambridgeshire Police are investigating the Twitter incident in liaison with Dyfed-Powys Police, the force where Griffin lives.

Unfortunately, Griffin’s Twitter account is back up and running and he has returned to posting offensive racial stereotypes about black people and criminality.

I’d say these postings today are probably guilty of incitement to commit racial hatred and also step over the line of legality.

Let’s not forget, these comments come from Nick Griffin, convicted criminal, currently under investigation by at least two police forces !

This mornings posting.
