Griffin: Sick as a parrot

As we predicted in the last issue of HOPE not hate magazine, it appears that Nick Griffin MEP, leader of the British National Party (BNP), has been declared bankrupt.

Griffin declared himself as without assets and offered to pay 42p in the pound over five years to all his creditors with the balance to be written off. This was rejected by the petitioning creditor.

Deputy District Judge Fox dismissed Griffin’s application and then proceeded to deal with the bankruptcy petition, which he granted.

Lawrence McDonald, counsel for the petitioning creditor, referred to the filed BNP accounts as being healthy.

The Judge was satisfied with the petition and declared Griffin bankrupt.
In an earlier hearing on 6th Feb 2013, Griffin had been ordered to pay what amounted to nearly £120,000 in outstanding moneys and costs to one of his or the Party’s creditors.

At them moment, this does not affect his standing as an MEP according to the party. In an interview with the BBC, the BNP has said that Griffin will still be standing as a candidate in the hope of being re-elected.
