Well, it took them a while but the Freedom Association have finally backed down and removed the BNP supporter from their Better Off Out campaign’s membership list.
Readers may remember that this has taken quite an effort. First off, Mark Wallace, the campaign manager, said that they wouldn’t take his name off because: “we are not intended to promote or discriminate against any legal political party.”
They then came up with the wheeze of just pretending that he wasn’t in the BNP by taking the party name off the list.
Finally, the hard right campaign has removed BNP member Giuseppe di Santis’s name from the list. It is certainly welcome that his name has been removed, but frankly it shouldn’t have taken this long for them to do the decent thing.
