Racist outburst shows true face of BNP Nazis

Issue No. 2195

A councillor’s racist outburst last week showed the reality of what Nazis grabbing control of Barking & Dagenham council would mean.

Bob Bailey, the leader of the BNP on the council, tried to block permission for a church where the 400-strong congregation is mostly Nigerian.

He said, “We don’t want any more Nigerian churches. These people eat off the ground. We don’t want the amount of black children.”

Planning permission was granted this time—but imagine if the BNP ran Barking council?
