  1. Anyone surprised?

    Didn’t think so.

    Griffin is a bloviating attention seeker desperate to assert insight and authority, while having neither, and claiming a mandate when the concept is literally laughable.

    By all means kick the hornet’s nest to troll the fool (within the boundaries of the law, of course) but don’t expect anything that even resembles reasonable discourse and please don’t be surprised when ordure pours from him.

  2. This man deserves to be shot,.

    1. i disagree.
      in a democracy democrats support the right of free speech even where they disagree with what is being said.
      free speech includes they right to say something else might find offensive.
      One thing that is important is that we dont allow people who advocate the shooting of opponents from ever gaining power,this includes any fascists and also left wing socialists like your good self

      1. Rodney I agree with you. Which philosopher said “I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”?

    2. Den Meaden 28 Nov 2013, 4:53pm

      I agree ALI should be

  3. In other news ….. bear s**ts in a wood.

  4. … takes one to know one, you gorgeous creature ….

  5. i HAVE NEVER WANTED TO PUNCH SOMEONE SO BADLY – ALTHOUGH LOOKING AT HIM IT SEEMS SOMEONE GOT THERE BEFORE ME –

    Why do these A holes get air time and newspaper coverage….

    nick griffin – greatest living argument for mercy killing!

    1. Brilliant

  6. Bizarre considering that early in his career Nick Griffin was in a same-sex relationship with National Front leader Martin Webster.

    1. “Show me a homophobe – I’ll show you a closet case …”

      1. Too right, my ex is one…

    2. Are you saying that someone parted those enormous cheeks?

      1. I think I’ve just been a little bit sick in my mouth..

      Perhaps you should remind him of that by tweeting him. I can just imagine his foul response.

    4. Robert in S. Kensington 21 Aug 2013, 4:13pm

      That was never proved. It was Webster’s word against his. Apparently, Griffin was propositioned at the age of 16 and stayed in Webster’s flat overnight. It doesn’t necessarily mean there was any sexual activity, not that I’m defending this vile bigot.

        What you said doesn’t seem to be the full story. There’s a video on YouTube “BNP Nick Griffin Amazing News” where Martin Webster goes into lots of details about this relationship and it wasn’t just an overnight stay in someone’s flat. I don’t know the truth and I guess none of us ever will, but I do know that “one night” and “4 year relationship” are NOT the same thing.

  7. They should use schedule 7 (anti terrorism laws) on this insignificant little man.

    I hope the people of the North West do not elect him again. All that EU money he is earning! And for what? How does he represent the interests of the North West or the UK with his vile hate speech.

    ‘This man deserves to be shot,.’

    I would not waste a bullet on him. He should be whipped to death by an Asian in a gay bar.

    (Okay sorry to everyone out there I hope that image doesn’t put you off your dinner)

    1. What an excellent comment, love it

  8. Jock S. Trap 21 Aug 2013, 2:38pm

    Nick Griiiiiiii….. zzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Another predictable bore who loves the media attention.

  9. What an absolute horrible man he is. He must lead a very happy and fulfilled life. Wish he would move to Russia….

  10. Griffin is simply preaching to his choir of bigoted knuckledraggers.
    The day he comes out in favour of either ethnic minorities or gay people, that will be news, but I won’t hold my breath.
    In other news, bears shit in the woods.

  11. Ironic that in next breath following their homo hysterical outbursts people like this often talk piously about men who died fighting for *freedom*?

  12. Derek Williams 21 Aug 2013, 4:40pm

    I think Ali gave as good as he got, so the allegation of “homophobia” is a litle specious in this context.

    The dialogue preceding Griffin’s outburst was provocative from both standpoints.

    1. I wouldn’t say “you blong in pakistan they’d stone you to death” is necessarily “homophobic” by definition, it has more of that classic racist vibe. exploiting the capital punishments recieved in the middle east is just an intimidation tactic if anything, and a pretty weak one at that lol

      Either way he managed to look like an idiot, a racist and a homophobe on a public platform in very few characters, so let him dig his own grave ya’ll

  13. Why do we insist on giving this disgusting waste of skin the oxygen of publicity?

    The only reason he is where he is is because his name is out there in the media and there are enough equally idiotic racists and homophobes in this country to give him some tiny little bit of power.

    The guy is a fool, I just wish people would ignore him and then maybe he’ll crawl away and die somewhere.

  14. This poor mental patient just fears anything different than him and his kin. . Really needs to get a good therapist, or a bullet, to fix his head.

  15. Wow! Bigot makes racist and homophobic statements. Another scoop for Pink News.

  16. “Mr Griffin replied: “So many of our dead rest in northern France”

    Oh yeah And, if it hadn’t been for the growth of a violent political cult motivated by the same hate-filled ideology as Griffin some eighty odd years ago then there’d be a lot less rows of graves full of people who died way before their time in places like northern France.

    1. is he talking British or those with Fascist inclinations?

  17. Use the Equality Act 2010, the CPS won’t prosecute though because they are not gay friendly

  18. Whilst Nigel Farage is a smug self-centred egocentric asshole that I would really like to punch in the mouth, Griffin is so mentally deranged I kinda feel unkind to hate him that much. He needs to see a psychiatrist. In fact, I think that should be made a requirement of any politically elected official.

  19. Damn Nick learn 2 politics, what a way to turn off the voters…. fail! Not that anyone in their right mind would vote for him anyway

  20. Disgusting. Racism and homophobia all rolled into one.

    When is this man going to die of a heart attack?

  21. Griffin is a hideous, wonky eyed loon!

  22. Just “poof”? That’s the most shocking thing about this story!

  23. casparthegood 22 Aug 2013, 11:05am

    How long before he decides his account has been hacked? ( from his IP address mind you)

  24. Li Thotomist 22 Aug 2013, 12:07pm

    If Nick Griffin had actually been in northern France visiting the places where British (and I must add, Empire) war dead are buried, he’d have seen something that might have opened his eyes: that along with lads from Birmingham, or Woolwich, or Dorset, or Glasgow, there are the names and graves of thousands of men from “British India” (= India, Pakistan and Bangladesh), Kenya and East Africa, black men from southern Africa and the Caribbean. I don’t think this fake patriot can have seen the Menin Gate, memorial to 55,000 men whose bodies were never even found to be given a decent burial, because he’d have seen that valour and bravery are not a white concept. He’s just a sick, and sickening, bigot and racist, blind to everything but his own obsession.

    1. Chris Barnett 29 Aug 2013, 11:43am

      …And Nick would agree with you that such people belong in the UK…so your point is?

      Nick might be un PC with his words, but yes, people are being “hysterical little poofs” if they translate his words as some kind of blind hatred, that ironically must be retaliated with blind hatred!

  25. Why is he not getting arrested and charged by the police for these racist and homophobic comments! Sometimes I hate reading pink news as there are just so many horrible stories like this!

  26. What frightened me more was not just his comments which are the usual racist rantings of someone with too little intelligence and too much ignorance, nut the comments on the twitter arguement with Mr Ali from other racist. Looking at their twitter feeds its really eye opening that the British education system has so badly failed those individuals whose understanding of History and Geography is so woefully inadequate.

    1. Chris Barnett 29 Aug 2013, 11:49am

      …Yes Nick’s a “horrible racist” for pointing out that the Islamist’s are awful to homosexuals, but Peter Thatchell isn’t! Maybe that’s because Thatchell is a left leaning homosexual while Nick’s a “breeder” ???

  27. lots of soldiers died in Northern France to save us from people who had political beliefs that advocated the shooting of people whom they disagreed with.These people also would use laws to prosecute people with whom they disagreed or disapproved.
    Thank god the facsists were defeated and we are allowed free speech, including the right to say thing that offend.

  28. Griffins followers have all but deserted him for the EDL and the hardline idiots that did follow him with passion, left after their details all appeared on Pastebin. People should treat him with the importance he deserves. Griffin has only managed 27k followers on twitter, quite a low number. And we will NOT go into the alleged homosexual relationship he had with a fellow party member in his younger years, well before he looked like a male clone of Tubbs from tv programme Royston Vasey
