Nick Griffin announces plans for debt help booklet – despite being declared bankrupt

Investigations Continue Into The Brutal Street Killing Of A British Soldier

British National Party chairman Nick Griffin has been declared bankrupt – but has confirmed he will stand for re-election as an MEP, and plans to produce a debt help booklet.

The far right member of the European Parliament reportedly amassed huge arrears after a legal wrangle with a law firm, which led to the decision at Welshpool and Newtown County Court yesterday.

However, Mr Griffin seemed upbeat after the announcement – calling it ‘a good day’ and vowing to stand as an MEP in May while producing a booklet on dealing with debt.

‘Being bankrupt does not prevent me being or standing as an MEP,’ he said.

‘It does free me from financial worries. A good day!

‘I am now turning the experience to the benefit of hard-up constituents.’

The North West MEP added party funds hadn’t been affected and the upcoming election campaign would be the ‘most professional yet’.

Party funds are not affected in any way. Our campaign in May will be our most professional yet & I will be lead candidate in the North West.

BNP press officer Simon Darby appeared to blame the banks and the UK political system for Mr Griffin’s predicament.

‘A lot of people are struggling financially – it’s not as if everyone’s out there with a lot of money – and a lot of people have been screwed by the banks and political system, Nick’s no different,’ he told Buzzfeed.
