Take a genealogy test on us, Griffin, and discover your African roots!

How do you be racist without being racist? This is the conundrum the BNP leader Nick Griffin finds himself in, writes Simon Woolley.

UK law obliges all political parties not to be discriminatory on the grounds of race, so the BNP’s ban on Black people joining his party clearly breaches that law.

Griffin has to comply whilst still feeding his rank and file the notion of “it’s still them and us”.

As Afua Hirsch points out in her Guardian blog, the BNP’s new proposed constitutional statement a is “fairly clear statement that non-white people are still unwelcome in the BNP.” The text put forward by Nick Griffin’s party is thus:

We are implacably opposed to the promotion by any means of any form of integration or assimilation of any indigenous people,” the new statements of principles say, “including the Indigenous British, which is likely to deprive such people of their integrity as a distinct people or the distinctiveness of their cultural values or of their ethnic or national identities or characteristics.”

It’s clear Griffin is desperately trying to appease the bigotry and racism within his party whilst complying with the law but none one is fooled not least the Judge.

Actually we would get some clarity as to where Nick Griffin himself might be in his divided Britain, if he were to undergo a DNA genealogy test. Given that the BNP have just been fined £12k by the courts, I’ll pay for the test.
