Nick Griffin: Money from Assad ‘won’t show up until this year’s accounts are published’

Nick Griffin, the leader of the British National Party (BNP), has been talking and writing about Syria an awful lot of late. But he's been talking and writing about Syria an awful lot more since he returned from a visit to the country last month.

Nick Griffin, the leader of the British National Party (BNP), has been talking and writing about Syria an awful lot of late. But he’s been talking and writing about Syria an awful lot more since he returned from a visit to the country last month.

Griffin, along with a clutch of other European extremist politicians, was invited on a “fact finding” mission to Syria by the government in Damascus.

Despite denials from the BNP that it was an official visit, once in the country the MEP met with the Syrian government’s prime minister, the deputy foreign minister and the information minister – the person who originally invited Griffin to the country.

Since Griffin’s return to the UK he has stepped up his rhetoric in support of the beleaguered Syrian government of Bashar al Assad. One might even say that Griffin has embarked on a whirlwind of propaganda for the Assad regime, including posting regular videos and articles on the BNP’s website.

It was particularly interesting, then, to see Griffin’s response when challenged on twitter about the BNP’s funding by Ghaffar Hussain. (Below: click to read the small writing)

This may very well be a joke of course; however it might still be worth keeping an eye on this year’s BNP submission to the Electoral Commission.
