Nick Griffin, head of the British National Party, has been arrested on suspicion of incitement to commit racial hatred. His arrest comes after an undercover video showing one of his speeches in which he labelled Islam a 'vicious, wicked faith' was shown on british TV.
The leader of the British National Party has been arrested following a TV documentary exposing the extent of racism in the organisation.

Nick Griffin, 45, was arrested on suspicion of incitement to commit racial hatred as part of an investigation into the BBC programme Secret Agent.

Father-of-four Griffin has been chairman of the BNP since 1999.

It has been well known that the BNP is a racist organisation and hopefully this will spell the long-awaited end for this party.

Having said that, it dismays me slightly to see the new laws against inciting racial hatred being used in what could be called an attempt to silence a political party. Hateful as their views are, I would rather confront them head on and show them up as the ignorant fools they are than force them to go 'underground'.
