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?

I completely agree; either we make them illegal or they get the same information everyone else has. By treating them differently Miliband is disenfrachising the people who voted for them and the area they represent.

That's as wrong as the views they hold.

It is not up to Matthew Rycroft other any other civil servant to judge those whom the peole have chosen to represent them.
Labour have thoroughly politicised the public services and this proves it.

Tris, I agree it's totally wrong., It's typical of these bastards. It's the same when they are being interviewed with someone from another party, they talk over them as if it's only their opinion that's valid.

Rosie. I agree. Stick it in an e-mail and sent it to me when you get a minute.

Banned, this is the reason the BNP have risen so far. Labour are not appealing anymore to their core voters about things like immigration, so they are voting BNP in their droves.
