edited my post, and it came up twice?
go away gramma/spelling nazi.
missed one U out of labour and you get in a hissy fit.
Errr, they are, aren't they? (help me here Von S)
Membership of any political party is banned within the police force, if I'm not mistaken.
Not to mention misspelling "I'd", "their", "immigration", and "policies", with a few words missed out for good measure
Also sentence structure and punctuation. Anyway, we need grammar nazis to balance against those who stagger their way through written English like a crack head trying to waltz.
I love this from the Judge:
"It comes as no surprise to me that somebody to do with an organisation that prides itself on Britishness is in fact living off the British people on Job Seeker's Allowance and that is why the fine is so low as to be ridiculous."
theres a difference between, 'supporting' a party, voting for a party, and becoming a paid up member...
when you pay to be a member of the BNP, for me, it shows a next level of support, belief and whilst i do not agree necessarily with the publishing of the list itself..but really paid up BNP members:/ the thought just makes me feel dirty!
I missed that. That's awesome.
Given that the BNP and its members are the victims of a crime, it seems very much out of order for the judge to attack them - I expect Labour party and Tory party supporters also have people on benefits amongst their number! And since when is everyone on JSA a benefit scrounger which is what the judge is implying? He should face sanctions for what he said.
I'm failing to see where he called him a scrounger.
It was the clear inference of what he was saying. If he thought it was fine, why mention it at all? It is a sideways attack on the BNP and its supporters and completely unjustified.
The judge implied that to claim JSA makes you less British for god's sake.
All he did was point out an irony (in that one of the BNP's major dislikes is foreigners who live off benefits). I don't really see how that's a personal attack, and I definitely don't see how he's implied your latter statement at all.
don;t the BNP want to get rid of the data protection act or something.
iirc if they where in power with their policies this would have all been totally legal.
Seems blindingly obvious to me. He said that claiming JSA makes you less British.
We're going to have to agree to disagree here then, because there's only so many times I can look at his statement and not see where he's said that at all.
By "He" I take it you mean the Judge?
What he actually said was
So far as I can see, he made no mention of foreigners, just implied that he felt that living off the British people on Job Seeker's Allowance is a particularly "British Nationalist" practice.
So he said that claiming JSA makes you less British. Elementary comprehension.
No he didn't
You seem to have something of a fixation about this particular, peculiar interpretation; you are perhaps best left to dwell on it . . .
No need, I know what he said, I know what he meant and I know what I think about it
