I am still celebrating the overturn of the inequalities commission case against the British National Party.
For the first clip of the defendants arriving at court I turn to Simon Darby’s blog for the footage. Simon’s own account of the arrival is worth a read if you have a couple of minutes. Security is something that the party has to take seriously and our teams do not receive the praise that they so thoroughly deserve.
The left wing protesters were in their usual form with their monotonous ramblings about Nazi’s. Volume seems to be their replacement for content. It is no surprise that their lecturers have not corrected them when you bear in mind that in many cases it is possibly their lecturers that recruited them.
I was only in court for one day but I left in no doubt that both judges were totally unimpressed by the repetition of the inequalities commission case which seemed from the beginning to be a ‘fingertips on the cliff edge’ type of presentation. My personal favourite was from the senior judge enquiring of the CEHR barrister after a particularly prolonged speech, “This is clearly a side issue which has no relevance to the case though has it? I do hope that this is not the main argument of the commission!” It was clear even from behind that this was precisely the case.
Simon Darby offers a compelling insight into the mind of Nationalists in this interview.
The last words I leave for Nick, on a megaphone, on the steps of the Royal Courts of Justice immediately after the conclusion of the case.
The left wing rabble of course continue to chant about ‘smashing’ people. Just for a change they were not saluting with clenched fists whilst doing this.
