Homophobic Brit MEP Nick Griffin Investigated Over Anti-Gay Bed and Breakfast Tweets
Well known UK homophobe and bigot Nick Griffin, the chairman of the British National Party and a Member of European Parliament has come under investigation by the Cambridge Police who said they’ve “received a number of calls” and are looking into the complaints made about homophobic tweets that Griffin posted regarding the Michael Black and John Morgan’s court win against a bed and breakfast that refused them because they’re gay.
Among the tweets on the @nickgriffinmep account was two which read: “So Messrs Black & Morgan, at [their address]. A British Justice team will come up to Huntington & give you a…
“…bit of drama by way of reminding you that an English couple’s home is their castle. Say No to heterophobia!”
An earlier tweet on the North West region MEP’s account had asked for the couple’s address and then said: “We’ll hold demo… for rights of all home owners, gays included, to rent or not rent rooms to whomsoever they wish.”
And these aren’t the first homophobic statements by the bigoted Griffin.
After the Admiral Duncan gay bar was bombed by a Neo-Nazi in 1999, Griffin blamed gay pride: “The TV footage of dozens of ‘gay’ demonstrators flaunting their perversion in front of the world’s journalists showed just why so many ordinary people find these creatures so repulsive.”
After Griffin’s Tweets about Michael Black and John Morgan’s court win he went even further and tweeted anti-gay messages trying to link Peter Gary Tatchell the Australian-born British political campaigner best known for his work with LGBT social movements to pedophilia.
