Nick Griffin challenged over BNP violence

By Jessica Elgot, May 10, 2010

BNP leader Nick Griffin was confronted by Searchlight editor and Hope Not Hate activist Nick Lowles over an incident where a BNP councillor was seen brwling with three Asian men.

The BNP have suffered a thrashing at the hands of the electorate, despite fears that the extreme rightwing party would gain a seat in Parliament after their success in the European elections.

Mr Griffin came in third in Barking, after a bitter campaign which saw volunteers and anti-racist activists come out to campaign for his Labour opponent, Margaret Hodge.
