David Miliband has secretly banned British embassy staff from giving help to BNP leader Nick Griffin. The Foreign Secretary has also ordered diplomats not to assist the far-Right party’s other MEP, former National Front leader Andrew Brons.
A letter, entitled ‘Handling Extremist MEPs’ and marked ‘Restricted’, was circulated to the heads of Britain’s European embassies after the pair were elected to the European Parliament in June. Written by Matthew Rycroft, the UK’s top European Union diplomat, it says far-Right MEPs, like other British members of the European Parliament, can be sent ‘factual written briefings’ on policy issues but nothing else. British MEPs from mainstream parties can normally expect private briefings from officials and to be offered the chance to meet diplomats and Ministers.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't agree with many things the BNP stand for. But, they are a LEGAL PARTY IN THE UK and until they are made illegal then they should have the same rights as every other politician. They were elected to the EU Parliament and not giving them the same rights as everyone else is to disenfranchise all the electorate who voted for them. IS BANANA BOY seriously suggesting that unless they agree with LABOUR they should not be allowed their democratic rights. Is this another EXAMPLE OF A TOTALITARIAN STATE?
