Will Griffin face Larne fury?

Matthew Collins - 25 04 14


BNP leader Nick Griffin, is expected to make an appearance in the town of Larne in Northern Ireland tomorrow, where there is to be a commemoration of the landing by the German boat SS Clyde, delivering 25,000 guns and three million rounds of ammunition to the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) in 1914.

On two previous trips to Northern Ireland where he has made “public” appearances, Griffin has had to beat a retreat after coming to the attention of locals unhappy with his presence there.

More recently, a man from Northern Ireland was sentenced to prison after pursuing Griffin for monies owed for work he did for the BNP and was not paid for. Griffin even gave evidence against the man.

The BNP are also a planning a social event for afterwards, but one person close to the ceremony told us that Griffin would not be welcome as he is a “parasite” and “no longer welcome to take advantage of our patriotism”.

How Griffin’s visit will also sit with some of his Anglo-Irish members is going to be interesting to see, too.
