Bob "it's all a conspiracy" Bailey has resigned as head of London BNP after losing his seat and getting arrested for assault.
According to a statement by London BNP, Bob stood down in order to:
"concentrate on clearing his name following unfounded allegations of assault during the recent London Elections"
Before claiming that:
"Bob leaves London BNP in good shape"
Under his leadership the BNP lost every single seat they held in the capital.
These included his own and the council seat of the BNP's only London Assembly member Richard Barnbrook.
Barnbrook has so far failed to mention this defeat, although he does admit that:
"We didn’t do nearly as well as we’d hoped."
However, all is not lost. As he puts it on his blog:
"the result, disappointing as it was, doesn’t actually change anything"
Oh dear. I think we're stuck in the first stage of grief here Richard.
