A big pat on the back to these three stars of the EDL's Arts and Crafts Club, who won the prize for this week's most badly-spelled banner. A pretty good try but 'Sport Are Troops' still has the all-time greats top spot.
What a jolly week it's been for the BNP. What with Nick Griffin and his daughter being in court in Calisle amid claims of blackmail, unpaid debts, threats via text-messaging and cars being driven off roads (or nearly, anyway), Griffin is probably wishing he'd just paid the money the party owed in the first place.
Then there's Michael Coleman, former Stoke-on-Trent BNP councillor, who is to face trial over racism charges having been accused of using offensive and 'racist language' used in two articles on his website between August 8, 2011 and March 8, 2012. Odd that this should happen when EDL supporters use offensive and racist language on their websites (mostly Facebook) pretty much all the time.
Another one with a talent for being offensive is Eddie Gibbons, a Greenwich BNP member who seems to find the tragic deaths of the Philpott children in a house fire in some way amusing. Gibbons, in jokey mode on his Facebook page said;
'I was really shocked and angered to hear that Mick Philpott had set fire to his house and killed his kids. How the fuck can he afford petrol on benefits?'
Ha-bloody-ha. Gibbons went on;
'Give a man a fish and he can feed his family for a day. Give him a canister of petrol and wait till his kids are asleep, problem solved!'
If this is the BNP's idea of humour, heaven help them.
To top all that off, there's the case of former BNP whiz, Ian Si'Ree, once the BNP organiser for Rhyl, Welsh Assembly candidate in 2011, Parliamentary candidate in 2010 and council candidate in 2008, who this week was found guilty of possessing child pornography and placed on supervision for three years on condition that he follows a sex offender treatment programme run by the probation service. He was also placed on the sex offender register.
Si'Ree admitted making and possessing 138 illegal images of child sex abuse - some of the children as young as eight, the filthy bastard.
This is not the first time the Si'Ree family has been in the news. Back in May, Si'Ree's son, James, also a BNP member, was jailed for life along with his uncle, for the murder of takeaway delivery driver Gabor Sarkozi.
For a party that constantly bangs on about morality, the BNP seems to have had a particularly difficult week.
