Lee John Barnes, considered by some to be one of the finest legal and political bloggers of our, or any generation, has resigned as chief legal officer of the BNP. LJB wrote a long resignation letter criticising Nick Griffin and other party grandees for their shambolic management of the party, and suggesting that Nick Griffin had monopolised the leadership. LJB was also upset at being sidelined by outside legal advisers brought in by Nick Griffin, and feels that the BNP is no longer fit for power, claiming that “such a political party cannot be trusted with political power in our society.”
One of the great joys of the BNP having LJB as their chief legal adviser was knowing that every time he spoke, he spoke with the authority of a senior BNP figure. This could take the form of detailed responses, such as answering our eighty five questions, or merely promising us a “quick trial, a short rope and a long drop.” His interests range from cheering on arson attacks to detecting the hidden hand of Zionism behind affairs.
BNP watchers will have a duller time after this.
