Say what you like about the BNP's Richard Barnbrook, he is always good comedic value.
Following his suspension, he's performed a mini-media blitz to restore his reputation.
So far this has involved a rather awkward press conference, a short interview on late night radio (in which we learned that Caribbeans can cook) and er, a new billboard on the A406:
I, Richard Barnbrook am going to be Barking’s next MP! I’m the candidate for the British National Party, which is the only Party that has the guts to tell it like it is. But even more than that, I’m an individual who cares; a real, ordinary person who lives in Barking and who’s a part of Barking.
That's right, Richard Barnbrook is planning to stand as Barking MP.
And he's a "real, ordinary person" you know? Rather than say, some kind of crazed racist superhero:
The comments underneath the announcement are good value:
Migrant Worker: Why don't those billboards make any mention of the BNP? Have you been booted out of the party?5cc: That second picture is one of the funniest things I've seen in ages."It's quiet in the city. Almost too quiet. No knifecrime murders for the BNP to use to link to black people and call for the banning of the Notting Hill Carnival. If only there were some way of making the public think there were.But wait! This is a job for Richard Barnbrook! ZAP! There's a made-up murder! KAPOW! There's another two! With his special 'make stuff up' powers, Barnbrook saves the day!"
Get yourselves a seat on the front row London. This is going to be priceless.
