Two brilliant pieces of news today.
Marmite sues BNP! Oh the number of puns that could apply here…
Marmite is beginning legal action against the British National Party after an image of a Marmite jar was used on a political broadcast without its permission, the company said.
“It has been brought to our attention that the British National Party has included a Marmite jar in a political broadcast shown currently online. ‘We want to make it absolutely clear that Marmite did not give the BNP permission to use a pack shot of our product in their broadcast. Neither Marmite nor any other Unilever brand are aligned to any political party.
”We are currently initiating injunction proceedings against the BNP to remove the Marmite jar from the online broadcast and prevent them from using it in future.”
Then, it turns out Nick Griffin is furious that one of his people is trying to steal the limelight.
Iâ€™ve picked up news that the BNP is planning some sort of St Georgeâ€™s Day parade in Barking on Friday morning. It fact, it may well turn out to be their election launch despite them telling the press that it will be in Stoke-on-Trent. Perhaps they are having two launches.
In previous years local BNP leader Richard Barnbrook has ridden through the East London borough on a white horse. Griffin it appears is not impressed and is telling those around him that in no circumstances must Barnbrook ride the horse.
With Griffin being criticised over the poor election campaign itâ€™ll be interesting to know who carries the day.
A horse ban?? It’s political correctness gawn maaaad!
