Nick Griffin Steps Down as Head of the BNP

By Andrew Anglin

Nick Griffin, saying the decision was all his own, has stepped down from his position as the leader of the BNP.

It’s a little bit sad, I think. But the sad reality is, he was not capable of really inspiring people, and tended to upset people instead. I also think he’s been going through some personal stuff. He went bankrupt earlier this year.

Hopefully, this marks a change of course for the BNP, which hasn’t been doing well as of late.

Mr Griffin, who has been leader since 1999, said he had had “more than long enough” in charge and had seen off both external and internal attempts to “destroy” the party in recent years.
While May’s European election results had been “brutally hard”, he said the party was capable of “winning” again.
Mr Griffin has been replaced as acting chairman by Adam Walker
The 55-year old, who will take the new role of party president, lost his seat in the European Parliament in May.
The party has suffered a string of electoral setbacks in recent years, getting just over 1% of the vote in May’s European elections and losing the majority of its local council seats in England.
In a statement on the party’s website, Mr Griffin said he had stepped down voluntarily at a meeting of the party’s national executive committee on Saturday.
“The decision was mine and mine alone, though it involved a lengthy and constructive discussion between the entire collective leadership,” he wrote.
He suggested the party was in a more stable financial and political position than it had been for some time.
“I had initially hoped to hand the responsibility over several years ago, but when a concerted effort was made to destroy the BNP from both outside and within, I decided that it was my duty to stay and steer our movement through the storm,” he said.
“The leadership team is united as to the way ahead and, once again, the BNP – for all that there are many improvements to be made – is the only effectively functioning, genuine nationalist game in town.”
I don’t know anything about Walker (I imagine some commenters do), but makes him sound like a pretty cool guy:
Walker received a suspended sentence and a driving ban last year after chasing down three boys aged between ten and twelve in his car, before slashing their bike tyres with a knife.
His initial two-year ban from teaching was extended to a lifetime ban by former education secretary Michael Gove.
Walker’s appointment marks the end of any attempts by the BNP to pose as a non-racist party.
He has previously described Britain as a “multicultural shithole” which is under the process of “ethnic cleansing” and warned that the country faces many more Lee Rigby-style executions perpetrated by “tribal African” people.
A spokesperson today confirmed that Walker was the new leader of the party.
“Recently appointed deputy chairman, Adam Walker, has accepted the role of acting chairman of the British National Party after Nick Griffin stepped aside at a meeting of the BNP National Executive held on 19th July, 2014,” a party spokesperson said.
“The full National Executive are united in their support for Adam in this role.”

  1. Good riddance, I say.
    He appeared here on BBC Question Time (, where he blew an opportunity to get into half Jew Jack Straw who was responsible for a raft of Race/Hate Laws in the late 1990s. He should have had all these facts at his finger tips..........
    He should have had Jack Straw and Dinglebore both squirming. He could have pointed out the numerous lies emitted from the BBC such as the collapse of WTC7 reported before it occurred.
    He would never have been invited back, but so what!
    He failed to mention the word Jew. It was obligatory to use the opportunity to do just that.
    In fact Jews should not be admitted into the BNP if it is a viable political party.
    The BBC clearly tried to set him up by asking him about the Holohoax which would have out him in trouble in Germany, France or Austria. But you field such things by pointing out what happened to Ernst Zundel and the fact that under Jewish Laws truth is no defence.
    He lacked attack, and was weak. You field questions from a half caste by telling him, "You have no chance if ever you need a bone marrow transplant!" The BBC allowed the nig-nog to rant and rave, and claim he was a benefit to the UK. Nick Griffin failed to deal with him severely.
    Being nice to Jews is a mistake.
    Hopefully Adam Walker will be a big improvement! Also he needs to be financially independent, and not needing to rely on any political salary.
