Griffin surrounded by confusion

Matthew Collins - 27 11 14

Who really knows what goes on in former BNP leader Nick Griffin’s head? It certainly has never been anything nice or useful, and certainly has very little to do with the interest of anybody other than himself.

Now it appears his new franchise could be in trouble already. ‘British Voice’, with a logo stolen from a certain film, appears to be old hat already and Griffin has decided he would prefer to call his new group ‘British Union’.

That would be some light relief to the genuine British Voice, a genuine charitable organisation.

Griffin is now pushing to some the idea that the new group will be called British Union, but others are determined it will be called British Voice and will fight elections. My, a split already?

The confusion started over the weekend and unsurprisingly, Griffin’s supporters got all confused and angry with each other and Griffin was nowhere to be seen.

Griffin was, surprise, surprise, unobtainable due to being out of the country-in Madrid of all places. Yes, despite pleading poverty, there’s nothing that can keep Griffin away from a few glasses of red wine with other fascists. And my, what a nice meeting it was, with really nice people.

Griffin was speaking at a meeting commemorating the life of José Antonio.

Griffin is promising to reveal all very soon to his supporters, but it seems some have split away already and have decided to keep the name British Voice. Another bombshell from Griffin was that he does not even want to lead the new organisation.

So all those people who put fivers into his numerous collections in the last three months are somewhat confused. Understandably.

Still, at least he got another foreign trip out of it, eh folks?
