Quote from Griffin in complaint to the BBC about the 'lynch mob' he feels he faced on QT last night.

Beggars belief.

Erm what about cities like Bradford and Birmingham??? hmm
What about the 8 million people who watched it?? (oh but they're lefty bbc viewers aren't they)
Seriously - what did he expect??? Obviously lives in cloud cuckoo land (which btw is not in britain) if he thought he would get an easy ride. Of course people want to ask questions on his views. THAT'S THE POINT!!!
AND the one 'topical' question about stephen gately he responded with the most vile homophobic rubbish - which ever way he was going to exposed as the prize idiot that he is...
and breathe

Oh he's just such a cock isn't he.

TanyaBranning Fri 23-Oct-09 13:45:34

Urgh. His anti-gay stuff just proved once and for all he is a Nazi. Hate non-whites? Check. Hate gay people? Check. He'll start on disabled people and gypsies next...

Given his definition of British as "all ancestors living in the British Isles 17000 years ago" he's almost certainly right. But then I'd be surprised if he could find a single city, town, village or hamlet that met that criterion. Or even a single household or individual.

ImSoNotTelling - Nick Griffin is not a cock

Cocks have some use and are occasionally quite pleasurable to experience

His anti-gay rants....wonder what his thoughts on lesbians - especially lesbian porn - are

GrimmaTheNome Fri 23-Oct-09 13:54:31

Yes, I wondered that too. I think his reference to finding blokes kissing was deliberately to get empathy from a lot of men who do feel this way (in the same sort of way I'd find the sight of NG kissing anyone creepy, even though I'm not heterophobic!). If he'd said he found the sight of two women kissing creepy, he'd have the opposite effect I suspect.

Nasty cheap trick.

StretchStinkyandFatso Fri 23-Oct-09 13:59:33

Nick the Prick didn't really get to show his true colours, did he?

More disappointing is the number of people on the sky/bbc/dailymail etc.. websites agreeing with NG and saying this proves the government don't care about 'ordinary' (WTF??) hard working white people.

Iklboo Fri 23-Oct-09 14:01:45

Hang on - the British Isles weren't the British Isles per se 17000 years ago? Weren't they just a collection on non-unified tribal ares with no specifically recorded/documented boundaries? (eg Ireland was just the landmass, not Republic & Northern Ireland separated into political areas, Wales not called Wales etc)

Thanks Wiki

ProfessorLaytonIsMyZombieSlave Fri 23-Oct-09 14:08:43

I think he actually said "these islands" or something like that, Iklboo -- I was using "British Isles" as a shortcut to describe which islands he was on about. You can legitimately say "The Seychelles" or "Australia" to refer to the relevant place before it was legally given the relevant name, I think.

More relevantly, I think there was actually dry land between [what was to become] Britain and [what was to become] France at that point, which would make the whole "islands" thing a bit awkward. But perhaps Mr Griffin has access to new geophysical research on the matter? Surely he wouldn't just open his mouth and let random drivel unsupported by any facts drop out?

Ah. Yes...

OK in the last 2000 years we've been invaded and settled by Romans, Angles, Jutes, Saxons, Frisians, Danes, and the Normans (who were Norse and not French) amongst others.

So any "native" of this country is very unlikely to have pure bloodline descended from 17,000 years ago.

So by Nick Griffin's definitions I doubt that there are actually any British people left in Britain at all.


GrimmaTheNome Fri 23-Oct-09 14:23:20

He doesn't actually use 17,000 years as the mark - he arbitrarily sets it after the migration of various European groups (all part of the 'family' ... bugger, can't find the link now) Saxons, Norse etc. Roughly, British is the types of people here about a thousand years ago.

Its actually an even sillier definition.

morningpaper Fri 23-Oct-09 14:24:41

Why is everyone so fascinated by Griffin? Who cares what he says?

He's fecking MAD. The end. The more we ignore him, the better.

Iklboo Fri 23-Oct-09 14:25:50

Wonder if the BBC will ask him to be on next season's 'Who Do You Think You Are' grin

GrimmaTheNome Fri 23-Oct-09 14:26:35

Because the BNP garnered a lot of votes and 2 MEPs

I wish he'd go away if we ignored him - expect a lot of people thought the same about Hitler.


GrimmaTheNome Fri 23-Oct-09 14:28:41


Though we do know his father was in the RAF in the war. (What this, and Jack Straw's father being a consciencious objector, like that was something shameful, had to do with anythign I didn't understand). I wonder if NGs father would be proud of him now?

RainBOOJelly Fri 23-Oct-09 14:31:38

Wouldn't it be really funny if there was in illegitimate birth in his ancestry??? Say for example, Grandma had an affair with an indian who later came out as gay, and maybe NG's father was the result of that affair???

NG would be able to send himself away!


RainBOOJelly Fri 23-Oct-09 14:33:33

what a twunt.

BadgersPaws Fri 23-Oct-09 14:34:08

Griffin's also gone on record as criticising the RAF for bombing Germany, I should hope that his father was already sufficiently ashamed of him.

Jamieandhismagictorch Fri 23-Oct-09 14:35:02

Ilkyboo I think that is an excellent idea .....

I would love to see him on 'Who do you think you are?'

With a lovely juicy scandal in the ancestory! grin

Do agree though, the more we ignore him, the more chance of him going away.
Any publicity is good publicity and all that.

The gay comment was particularly annoying as (selective memory alert here) his mate Richard Barnbrook, the London BNP councillor (who represents Barking and Dagenham even though he lives in Lewisham) the one who wanted to take him as a guest to the Queen's garden party, has appeared in a gay porn film. hmm Though to give him his due, he claims it's homoerotic, not porn. Possibly because the kissing is OK but there's not too much gratuitous willy action. hmm

Wonderstuff Fri 23-Oct-09 14:47:18

I did feel that his answer to the question 'where do you stand on civil partnerships' was quite special
'we are against teaching homosexuality to primary school children'
vile man.
