BNP membership rules still discriminatory, court rules

Posted in Uncategorized by T.Salami on March 12, 2010

The British National Party’s new membership rules are likely to discriminate against non-white people, a judge has ruled.

The BNP voted to scrap its whites-only policy after a legal threat from the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

A judge at Central London County Court has ruled the party’s new constitution is still indirectly discriminatory.

BNP leader Nick Griffin said the ruling was “appalling” but he had now made the changes demanded by the court.

Judge Paul Collins ordered the BNP to pay costs and said its membership list must remain “closed” until it complied with race relations laws.
