BNP legal officer quits over ‘conscience’

The BNP’s senior legal advisor, has resigned because he said the far right party “cannot be trusted with political power”.

Lee Barnes, who has described the JC as “a front group for the Zionist Nazis”, was once considered a close ally of party leader Nick Griffin.

Announcing his departure Mr Barnes accused the BNP of covering up “serious allegations of sexual abuse by senior officers” and said he could not in “good conscience” stay on as an officer.

He also said that to his knowledge “the party is now technically insolvent”. He blamed legal “debacles” including the dispute with Unilever over the use of a jar of Marmite in a political broadcast, for the party being “now technically bankrupt”.
