A TYCOON who starred on TV’s Secret Millionaire is joining the British National Party to RILE them – because he is Asian.
Mo Chaudry, 49, will formally apply today – days after the BNP had to change its whites-only constitution because it breached equality laws.
The Pakistan-born businessman, who is worth Â£60million, admitted last night: “I will not be welcomed with open arms.” Despite blasting the party as racist, he vowed: “I want to stand up and be counted – and expose the BNP for what they are.
Looks a bit like a publicity stunt, but who cares.
I had a long-ish argument with Trevor Phillips about the EHRC’s decision to take the BNP to court. My argument was that it handed the BNP an excuse to pretend they were a normal party and thus sanitise their public image over a longer period of time. One side-effect I did NOT anticipate was a big split within party members who would be driven to the National Front. Watch the video below. Maybe Trevor was right after all…
