The people of Liverpool it seems are not interested in entertaining the sentiments of Nick Griffin who was forced to abandon an unscheduled stop in Church Street Liverpool, when more than 100 people staged an impromptu demonstration this week.
Alan Brown, regional co-ordinator for Merseyside Unite against Fascism said there had been no pre warning that Griffin would be in Liverpool.
It is not known if his appearance was meant to coincide with the Liberal Democrat conference being held at the Echo Arena.
Mr Brown said:
“Nick Griffin thinks that because he was elected by two per cent of the electorate that he can come here and spread his message of hate, but I think you can see from the amount of people on the demo that we don’t want him in our city and he does not represent people in the North West.”
Griffin and the racist BNP were smashed at the general election. The focus must now surely be removing their presence from the EU at the next European elections.
