Richard Barnbrook under new investigation by GLA

BNP London Assembly Member Richard Barnbrook is under investigation for another alleged breach of the GLA code of conduct, Tory Troll can reveal.

The complaint, made by James Cleverly AM, concerns material distributed during the recent closely fought Bexley Council by-election.

Barnbrook is accused of distributing petitions for the controversial BNP-backed 'London's Mothers Against Knives' campaign with City Hall given as the contact address.

He also stands accused of misusing GLA resources as well as other related breaches of both the GLA code of conduct and the Local Authority Publicity Code.

At a recent meeting of the City Hall Assesment Sub-Committee it was decided that the complaint warranted further investigation by the Monitoring Officer.

Sanctions for breaking the code range from an obligation to make a formal apology to full suspension from office.

A separate complaint about 'false' claims that he made in a Youtube video on the subject of murders in Barking and Dagenham is also still under investigation.

Who's Richard Barnbrook a mother of then?

Eddie Murphy would probably say that he is a mother! Even his own party are embarrassed by his inarticulate meanderings. He has consistently failed to answer questions about the knives campaign on his pitiful Telegraph blog.

He's not a mother, he's a melon farmer.

Barnbrook's uselessness can hopefully be exploited as a way to talk people out of voting BNP. Sort of "Do you really want more twats like this? What would they ever do for you?" & so on.

Have not logged in due to not being able to navigate around the comments system.

Ferking Melon Farmer!

Asquith - I don't know why this blog still has problems with the comments system. I've tried everything I can think of and it's still not working properly.

Eric - At least you're able to leave critical comments on his Telegraph blog. He doesn't allow them on his personal one.

Well,Well he is still at it is he, true to what Eric has said Barnbrook has been questioned about this campaign ceaselessly on his Telegraph blog and flatly refuses to answer.

Congrats to James CleverlyAM for taking this forward, just one word of warning, watch out for the abusive emails and telephone calls.

Asquith,

"Barnbrook's uselessness can hopefully be exploited as a way to talk people out of voting BNP. Sort of "Do you really want more twats like this?"

Unfortunately I suspect the answer of many BNP voters is yes. They really aren't that clever, the deputy leader of the BNP has spent his latest blog entry detailing that he's so stupid he can't figure out how to use iPlayer!

Barnbrook really has confirmed how useless the BNP are should they ever get anywhere near a position of power. Sadly, the mainstream press aren't talking about Barnbrook so the voters never find out what a joke the BNP are.

It seems the Numpties at the BNP have given Dame Vera Lynn the hump. Is there no limit to their crass stupidity

The real issue here is that a Tory is wasting time on trivia when he should be doing his job and concentraiting on the real issues that they were elected on!

Highlighting Barnbrooks stand against knife crime - is that wise?

Shouldn't a Tory be showing a lead on this rather than looking for cheap points to score over trivial technicallities?

This looks bad for the Tories not the BNP!

In a month when Boris was more concerened with keeping the EU happy at the expence of our own workers!

If this triviality continues the Blue Labour Tories will not only be out of power for the next 10 years, they will implode.

Perhaps it is for the best seeing as i don't recognise this new blue Labour as the Conservative party of old.

The party of the Iron lady you are not.

Witch-hunt politics,

I wonder if Richard and his team will have a file on all the the other GLA members, to counter all such nonsense with far more serious claims and abuses from other AMs.

People in glass houses - better be squeeky clean if you want to play witch-hunt politics.

Because as sure as hell the BNP will track every single thing you do from now on - one false move.

Did anyone really think this through?

While the Tory AMs focus on Barnbrook and trivia, patting themselfs on the back for neglecting to do their jobs - The BNP move into the south east.

The British National Party has seized a seat on the Sevenoaks Council in Swanley, Kent, in its first ever outing in that ward.

Successful BNP candidate Paul Golding took a magnificent 408 votes to the Labour candidate’s 332 and the Tory vote of 247.

Couldn't you have fit that all into one comment? Nobody's going to think there's more of you.
