Griffin’s historical ignorance of Poland’s war role

Nick Griffin poses in this picture against a backdrop showing a Spitfire and the slogan “Battle for Britain.” But the racist BNP leader reveals his historical ignorance since the “RF” on the side of the plane depicts a plane in the No. 303 (Polish) Squadron.

According to Wikipedia, the No. 303 Squadron known as the “Kościuszko”:

“was one of 16 Polish squadrons in the Royal Air Force during World War II. It is the RAF unit which scored the highest number of enemy kills during the Battle of Britain.

The Polish crews were praised earlier today on the Nothing British website. Andy McNab said:

“That is why we won the Battle of Britain and as a country that is why we are so good because we have got such a good mix. And Nick Griffin doesn’t get that.”

As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.

We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.
