The Greater London Authority has employed two BNP members, it was confirmed last night, as unions discussed a public sector ban for all BNP members.
Chris Roberts and Tony Avery, will work with BNP London Assembly Member Richard Barnbrook.
They will replace BNP Deputy Simon Darby, who was suspended for his "spear-throwing" remarks and BNP councillor Emma Colgate.
The case will raise questions about reported plans to ban all BNP members from the public sector.
Although the positions were open to all, City Hall say they had trouble filling them with non-BNP members.
According to one senior officer:
"There has been some difficulty in providing staff prepared to work for the BNP, consequently the GLA [have] gone to an agency which had connections with persons who were prepared to work for the BNP."
Chris Roberts is perhaps best known for his failed attempt to sue Searchlight.
Less is known about Tony Avery on the other hand.
However, in the leaked BNP membership list, Avery is described as an "Activist, Experienced video editor" and as an "ESOL teacher" (English for speakers of other languages).
Perhaps he could give his new boss a few tips.
