  1. Is this cretinous little knob even married? He really is still desperate for column inches isn’t he?

    No self respecting LGBT person would support him. I would not even p**s on him were he on fire.

    1. Desperate times for the BNP, so what’s their response? “Lets try some cheap shots at the gays” I sometimes think they have more in common with the community they purport to despise than with any other group.

  2. Ridiculous man. Does anyone take this delusional freak as anything other than a joke? (well, other than the handful of knuckle-dragging mouthbreathers who made him an MEP..and they are..happily…a dying breed).

    It’s far more likely that Nick Griffin will lead to the death of the BNP.

    1. We can only hope.

  4. Oh. here we go… another attack on same sex relationships.

    Do you have proof of this claim, little man?

    How about you quietly go back to that cesspit of a hovel you live in.

    1. Yes, a little hovel hidden away in Llanerfyl in far West Wales, where this sad loser doesn’t have a neighbour, is avoided by the racist Welsh nationalists, and can continue his dream of a Britain that has never existed.

      Let him live permanently in East London!

    Why has this vile thing not been arrested?

  6. WTF?! Is this guy playing Homophobic Bingo For Morons?

    Last week it was discrimination in service provision. This week parenting. Next up employment rights and why they caused the recession. Then hate crime legislation and why it’s so annoying not being able to smack gay men without punishment.

    Prize moron this one.

  7. I always love hearing the so-called rationale used by individuals such as this…….it throws reason out the window in most cases…..but always guaranteed to be a good chuckle in when you apply their same morals and values to the end of their statements and interpretations. For example : “It undermines the institution of marriage, and as a result of that, children will die over the next few years, because they’ll be brought up in homes which aren’t married”. So, considering the divorce rates, single parenthood both planned and unplanned…..is it safe to ask how many have died thus far? for purely statistical purposes only !!

    By suggesting he like the moral fibre of the islamic way of life, as suggested by this comment: You [students] may think I’m a monster, but look at what your fate would be in an Islamic republic of Britain”.
    perhaps he should be shipped out to an islamic country, if for nothing else, a little education.

    1. People like Griffin always slip that one in as if living under an Islamic theocracy and living under his ideal far-right facist regime were the only two options on the table.
      Implying “if you don’t let us be a little bit homophobic and treat you like second-class scum, you’ll encourage the Islamic homophobes by default, and you’ll like them even less”.
      I vote for option three of putting two fingers up to both hardline islamic theocrats and BNP facists.
      Thus far neither the UK Far right or the islamic fundamentalists have enough political leverage to dictate terms to the rest of us.
      Personally I’d happily lock both groups of hotheads in a room together and let them settle their own differences, just leave us out of it.

  8. Be grateful, you homosexuals – look what I’ve done for you: “Mr Griffin also claimed he was a more tolerant BNP leader because under his leadership, the party had scrapped its policy to re-criminalise homosexuality.”

    With friends like you, who needs enemas?

    1. I was a BNP supporter. I don’t think many BNP voters are all that intolerant towards homosexuals/bisexuals. I like to think I am not and it is true that Mr Griffin has scrapped the previous policy of John Tyndall. That policy was utterly absurd not least for the fact it deterred gays from joining the party or supporting it. He is right to warn homosexuals/bisexuals about Islamists though. I am sure all of you are aware of what happens to gays in places like Iran (hanging from a crane in public). He is wrong about civil partnerships. I was opposed to them when Labou introduced them but I can’t think of any rational or reasonable reason to be against them. A new nationalist party will be launched soon with a more liberal line on the subject than the one the BNP currently takes.

      1. Robert in S. Kensington 27 Oct 2012, 1:04am

        Civil Partnerships are of yesterday. Equal marriage has replaced them in eleven countries, soon to be 12 next month when France introduces legislation, expected to pass. The BNP does NOT support equal marriage. This “new” nationalist party you speak of, do you realy think it will embrace equal marriage? I don’t.

      2. Why were you against Civil Partnerships if you couldn’t think of a rational or reasonable reason to be that way!?!?! Surely that’s the first step on deciding your position on an issue!?!?

    2. I was a BNP supporter but it is tirades like this which have given the BNP
      a bad image. I still remain a nationalist though. He is right to say he was a more tolerant BNP leader because the previous leader had an utterly ridiculous, unworkable and frankly irrational policy on the subject which deterred gays from voting BNP or joining the party. He does have a point though in regard to Islamists. After all, you only have to look at what countries such as Iran do to homosexuals/bisexuals ie hanging them from cranes in public. As for civil partnerships, he is wrong. I used to be against them but I have changed my views. A new nationalist party will be launched soon which will support them so having a more liberal stance than the BNP currently has.

  9. This grotty little twerp says what the Christian Institute thinks but dare not say.

    Ignore the prat.

  10. He’s scum. Nothing more needs to be said.

    1. There are three words that I think must be said of a man such as him.
      They are “Ha”, “Ha”, and “Ha!”
      (Can be repeated as often as is deemed necessary)

  11. “It undermines the institution of marriage, and as a result of that, children will die over the next few years, because they’ll be brought up in homes which aren’t married”.

    So children with gay parents will die because their parents aren’t married, yet Griffin is against equal marriage. Uh huh – makes perfect sense. Well, if you’re as stupid as Griffin.

    What he said sounds like something a five year old would say – but they have the excuse of youth, he doesn’t. He’s just a nasty bigot who wants someone to bully to make himself feel better.

  12. Isn’t it strange how we will bring the death of people but it is us who keep getting attacked and killed.

    What a vile excuse for a man.

  13. Scott Amundsen 26 Oct 2012, 5:42pm

    “So why can’t you people simply get over it and tolerate the fact that a lot of heterosexual people – we don’t want to persecute you – but we find the sight of two men kissing creepy. That’s just a fact. What’s the problem?”

    What’s the problem? Really?

    For starters “you people,” but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You have now stated for the record what homophobes really have against LGBTs: they cannot stop obsessing about what we do in the bedroom and they think it’s “icky.”

    Really Mr Griffin, I can assure you that none of us spends nearly so much time thinking about what heterosexuals do in their bedrooms; your obsession with our sex lives is unhealthy. Some would call it pathological.

    1. Every time he mentioned “two men kissing [is] creepy” I can’t help but feel that is is said with a tinge of jealousy.

      1. It is highly ironic given that the sight of Nick griffin kissing anyone, male or female, would make most people vomit.

  14. The man is a sick disgusting man from a sick disgusting far right party. people who actually vote for his party should be ashamed of themselves.

  15. Sounds like someone needs to be locked up for the good of everyone. Hideous racist bigot.

  16. It takes a speshul kind of person to take the already debunked claims made by anti-equality groups, and make the seem LESS intellectual.
    “…children will die over the next few years, because they’ll be brought up in homes which aren’t married”

    1. Yep, you can just see the coroner’s verdict can’t you:
      “It’s your classic case of death by unmarried parents”.
      Why don’t we ever see that well established cause of death on Quincey or CSI Miami?
      Perhaps Mr Griffin could turn it into a public information film…

  17. Carl Rowlands 26 Oct 2012, 5:52pm

    I remember reading somewhere that there was a suspicion that Mr Griffin was in an intense ‘same sex association’ at some point. I think the gentleman protesth too much.

    1. The man’s name is Martin Webster. He claims they had a full sexual affair. They were in the NF together.

      Pass the bucket, please!

      1. Yes, and possibly you can still view the videos on You Tube about their relationship. Search YouTube for

  18. Gary Farrimond 26 Oct 2012, 6:08pm

    Its clear to me that he has neither researched his topic nor understands the concept of humanity gay or straight.

    His comments appear to be designed to obtain publicity as he knows that he is toast in the next Euro Elections, Brons his former colleague has left the BNP and all his former friends are now attached to equally odious groups. No one is listening Mr Griffin why not accept people have seen you for what you are a vile bigot that knows nothing, is incapable of learning and never will amount to anything

  19. unfortunately this nobody – is getting more press than ever with all these hideous remarks -

  20. Hope the Leeds Student treated him with the contempt he deserves though why they were interviewing him in the first place is a mystery

  21. Robert in S. Kensington 26 Oct 2012, 6:25pm

    So by his moronic deduction, heterosexual widows and widowers left with children will see their children die because there aren’t two parents around?

    Somebody needs to really nail this creepy psychopathic liar once and for all. My only hope is European Parliament will bott him out.

    You can bet the Christian Institute is cheering him on along with the hate mongering rabble at the Daily Mail and Telegraph. Music to their ears.

    Notice the silence of the CoE and RC cults in all this. SIlence surely gives consent.

  22. I almost feel that having this man well documented as a moron and well documented as being anti-gay helps us out a little. What a monumental pillock he is though.

    1. No ‘almost’ about it in my view. I agree with those above who say that he is doing a great job of exposing the irrationality of all other rabid bigots, the difference being most of them are two faced, where poor Nick seems to be burdened with just that one.

  23. Children will die in the next few years, because of being made to feel there’s something “wrong” with them, that they’re outcasts of society… because of people like Nick Griffin. Now that is actually a fact.

  24. mickie_newton 26 Oct 2012, 8:00pm

    Does that also go for all those families of straight parents where they’re not married Mr Griffin?

    My sister isn’t married and her kids are growing up fine!! So I think that if I had children with my wife I am sure my kids would also be fine as are ALL children of gay parents….Me thinks you need to shut up!….No…you’re definitely NOT anti-gay are you sir?!

  25. Always good when people like that expose themselves. So to speak.

    1. Interesting image

      *puts dinner away to finish later*

  26. Paul in Brighton 26 Oct 2012, 8:21pm

    Incredible.

    Civil partnerships will lead to the death of children?

    Actually, Nick Griffin, your racists coherts murdered Stephen Lawrence and deprived Doreen and Neville Lawrence of the joy and love of watching their son grow up to fulfill his talents and ambitions.

    Racism leads to the death of children.

    Homophobia leads to the death of chilren.

    And you, Nick Griffin lead to the death of civilisation that so many died to achieve.

    Crawl back under the crevice from which you slid.

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 27 Oct 2012, 1:06am

      Neanderthal I think is the most apt word in regard to Griffin.

  27. Pure evil

  28. Robert Brown 26 Oct 2012, 9:44pm

    URGH . . . the ‘scary’ thing is that there are many LGBT people who support him and indeed UKIP (who are also homophobic) and indeed other ‘right wing’ parties . . .

    Robert
    http://www.rainbow-citizen.com

    1. Why should it be ‘scary’? Surely you gays are just as must interested in other issues such as the EU, immigration, the economy as any straight person?

    2. Nice site…Not seen that one before. Thanks for posting it Robert :)

  29. See? We’ve made such social progress, functionally handicapped people can enter politics too.

  30. They don’t have ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ in the British Armed Forces. Gays are allowed to serve openly. Have been since 2000. Just shows how poorly informed these BNP w*nkers are.

  31. Unfortunately he probably does have some gay support from worthless uncle toms, the same types you see against marraige equality, biggins, starkey, everett , summerskill etc and that are now being used by the bigots as alleged spokespeople of the lgbt community.

  32. I can’t imagine having a conversation with that man. The gay student who approache him must have had a stronger stomach than me.

  33. Where are all the BNP, apologist, w@nkers now that trolled these forums back when the London mayoral elections took place, telling everybody how inclusive the BNP is and how accepting of gay people they are?

    Thinly veiled fascism is not a good protest vote either, keep this in mind next time they come around asking for your votes.

  34. José Merentes 27 Oct 2012, 12:51am

    Does it worth it to comment?

  35. How many of you guys (and Mr Griffin) have been to Saudi Arabia or Bahrain? Although it is illegal it is very loosely enforced, even to the extent that in Bahrain there are gay bars, In Riyadh which is the capital of Saudi and where the enforcement of Islam is strictest, there was when I was last there, a gay cafe, where one could meet and pick up gay Saudis. And who can ignore the common practice of Arab males walking along holding hands, no they are not all gay but certainly some are!

  36. The gay community is very short-sighted.

    You are SINGLE PEOPLE. Whether you get married to your own kind or not. Does not give you right to have children.

    If you won’t conceive naturally with the opposite sex, you should not be allowed to have kids.

    Society is wrong for allowing, encouraging, permitting, SINGLE PARENTING, especially for queers.

    1. “Queers” yeah don’t allow good gay parents in favour of fateful straight ones! Funny how most fateful people are also stupid….

    2. Dave North 27 Oct 2012, 8:46am

      No.

      Society is wrong for allowing uneducated bigots like yourself from having a vote and procreating.

    3. The assertion of prejudice as fact. The definition of ‘trolling’.

    4. “You are SINGLE PEOPLE”

      The law disagrees with you. But I’d say that’s a common situation with regards to your “opinions”. Grow up.

  37. They lead to the death of children only in the same way that a couple saying “let’s not have any more children” does! And in the same way that not raping someone does. Another non-argument by this boring, fatuous excuse of a human.

    1. Haha! Awaiting next week’s Griffin quote: “We must stop arresting rapists as it is tantamount to murdering unborn babies”

  38. “death of children” words to truly describe this idiot evade me. However I can think of plenty of swear words!!!

  39. MerlynHerne 27 Oct 2012, 11:09am

    Civil partnerships lead to the death of children?! What has this twit been smoking?

  40. Membership of the BNP leads to death of the brain.

    1. Too kind. Brain death precedes joining ie anyone who votes/joins BNP is already a brain dead loser

  41. The picture alongside this article speaks for itself.

  42. Miss Priapism 27 Oct 2012, 7:57pm

    His parents sent him to a private girl’s school, I’m not surprised he’s grown up odd.

  43. Griffin says “we find the sight of two men kissing creepy”, so Griffin clearly has a problem.

    And Griffin’s saying “look at what your fate would be in an Islamic republic of Britain” is nonsensical because we don’t have, and aren’t going to have, an “Islamic republic of Britain”.

    1. We don’t have at the moment but muslims are breeding at an incredible rate and it ISN’T totally nonsensical to suggest Britain turning into an Islamic state can not happen sometime in the future. This is why some people in Britain are nationalists including me. I have supported and voted for the BNP in the past but the BNP has made many mistakes and in too many instances Mr Griffin has been at the heart of them. A new nationalist party which supports civil partnerships and has a more liberal line on gay rights will be in existence soon and I will tranfer my support to them.

  44. Ben Foster 27 Oct 2012, 9:40pm

    which is the biggest crackpot, Griffin or Romney? Thank Goodness there is no chance of Griffin being elected PM of this country.

    1. David Millar 27 Oct 2012, 10:22pm

      We are preaching to the converted – people said there was no chance of Griffin being elected an MEP. There was. And he did.

  45. David Millar 27 Oct 2012, 10:24pm

    Wrong target here.people said there was no chance of him being elected and MEP.
    There was, and he did.

  46. A bit excitable in his over the top opinions, isn’t he?

  47. hahahahaaa! hahahahaa! Bwaaaa, haaaa, haaa! :-) is all this deserves.

  48. Backward and dangerous, thick skinned and empty

  49. Hopefully they’ll go down in flames at the next euro elections in 2014 and lose there 2 M.E.P’s

  50. Dave North 28 Oct 2012, 2:50pm

    No Nick.

    Being bullied at school by other children who have bigoted parents who share your mindset leads to the death of children.

  51. Jock S. Trap 29 Oct 2012, 12:12pm

    My my… not very bright is he?!!

  52. Hey Nick! Keep it up! The more you spout this insane bile, the more that even the brainless will start to doubt your sanity. By the way, has anyone ever told you that people who are obsessed with homosexuality are more than likely gay and in denial? Extensive research in Holland and the USA now points to this fact. So, if you don’t want people suspecting you may be a closet case, maintaining a discreet silence might be advisable …
