Bnp's Nick Griffin Declared Bankrupt

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-25590155

British National Party (BNP) leader Nick Griffin MEP has been declared bankrupt.

A bankruptcy order was made at Welshpool County Court on Thursday.

Mr Griffin tweeted: "Being bankrupt does NOT prevent me being or standing as an MEP. It does free me from financial worries."

He added: "I am now turning the experience to the benefit of hard-up constituents by producing a booklet on dealing with debt."

What by telling them to go bankrupt?

Being bankrupt now frees you from financial worries.... Just the sort of person you need being a politician.

TBF to him he's probably gone through an experience that the common pleb might that none of the elite party leaders/members ever will!

You can tell the conviction politicians as they haven't got three houses. Dave Nellist (old fashioned socialist) always seemed poorer than his constituents.

Whereas in Africa money and backhanders is traditionally WHY people go into politics.

Bankruptcy is supposed to be when you have no way of paying it back.

He gets 2m. A year doesn't he?

Well, I wish I was paid that well for being a one-eyed "nationalist"! :blink:

I'm not sure it works like that. There's been a spate of pop stars going bankrupt recently, some have done it twice. They spend what they like, don't pay any tax, and then write off their debts through bankruptcy. This is despite their huge future potential earnings. Perhaps our bankruptcy laws need reforming....

Not really. If they can't pay due debts on statutory demand they are by definition bankrupt at that point.

There is a big difference between voluntary and involuntary bankruptcy though. As I understand it, with Griffin, it was involuntary and a law firm he retained brought the petition for legal fees he could not afford to pay. Apparently Griffin offered 42p in the pound on the debt and they declined. I suspect all they'll end up with now won't even cover the costs of the petition, which serves them right really.

How much do you get paid for being a one eyed nationalist then MrPin?

I actually have two eyes (which point in roughly the same direction), so better than the "average" then!

I'm happy to be British! It works when abroad! The foreign ladies are expecting a cross between Trevor Howard and John Mills, with hopefully only a tiny hint of Alan Turing! :blink:

I think the last line on my passport should read " purveyors of fine peace keeping devices to bent regimes, since before you were born"! ;)

I'd love to see him being supplanted as BNP leader by a Romanian immigrant.

There still is a job for me out there!?

Andreus Romanesciu!
