Hundreds of Syrians to be given refuge: Clegg brokers deal to allow most vulnerable victims of civil war including children and disabled to come to Britain

  • Precedence to be given to most vulnerable Syrians seeking refuge abroad
  • Plan agreed last night after weeks of talks within Coalition government
  • UK is already the second largest bilateral donor to Syrian refugees

Hundreds of the most vulnerable victims of the civil war in Syria will be able to seek refuge in Britain, in a deal brokered last night.
Precedence will be given to the most extreme cases such as women and children at risk of sexual violence, the elderly, survivors of torture and people with disabilities, Nick Clegg announced.
The Deputy Prime Minister said Britain had a ‘moral responsibility’ to help alleviate the suffering in the region, where more than 100,000 people have died and many millions displaced from their homes.
The plan was agreed last night after weeks of talks between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats about how to respond to the Syrian conflict, which has raged for almost three years.
David Cameron has come under pressure from Mr Clegg, Labour’s Ed Miliband and Ukip leader Nigel Farage to join the countries currently offering sanctuary to some of the refugees.
More than 11.5million people inside Syria and those who have fled to neighbouring countries are in need of food, shelter and medical treatment.
Mr Cameron appears to have overcome objections from the Home Office by agreeing to let in ‘hundreds’ of vulnerable people, but without joining the United Nations quota system.
The UN High Commission for Refugees is calling for Western nations to admit 30,000 Syrians between them. But last week immigration minister Mark Harper said the quota system only provides ‘token relief’.
A government source said there were concerns that quotas would encourage a ‘box ticking culture’ among other countries who have not matched Britain’s record on aid to the region.
The UK is the second largest bilateral donor having given £600million aid to help refugees in the region.
Sources said the deal was supported by Mr Cameron and Nick Clegg and there had not been a ‘Whitehall battle’ over it.
‘We will be looking case-by-case at the most vulnerable to see if we can help them’, a source said. The number is expected to be ‘in the hundreds’ to be brought here over the coming months and to start ‘very quickly’.

Home secretary Theresa May will set out the new policy today in a parliamentary debate about the UK’s response to the crisis.
At least 1,500 people have already been able to settle in the UK through a programme to help those with existing family ties. But in the Commons last week, the Prime Minister warned that small quotas would have to be considered carefully in a crisis involving millions of people.
Mr Clegg said last night that Britain had now agreed to provide refuge to those ‘most traumatised’ by the crisis without setting specific targets. The UN, which backs the UK’s stance, will help identify these people.

Mr Clegg said: ‘I am pleased to be able to announce that the UK will be providing refuge to some of the most vulnerable Syrian refugees. The Coalition Government wants to play our part in helping to alleviate the immense suffering in Syria.
‘The £600million we have provided makes us the second largest bilateral donor of humanitarian aid in the world. But as the conflict continues to force millions of Syrians from their homes, we need to make sure we are doing everything we can.’

He said they intended to target those ‘in greatest need’ and continue to support the peace talks underway in Geneva between the Assad regime and opposition forces to find a political solution.
Mr Clegg added: ‘We are one of the most open hearted countries in the world and I believe we have a moral responsibility to help.
'Britain has a long and proud tradition of providing refuge at times of crisis. This Coalition Government will ensure it lives on.’

Holocaust Day – The Time Is Ripe For A Jewish Apology

By Gilad Atzmon
A mass protest in Paris on Sunday against French President François Hollande turned into an anti-Jewish demonstration and ended in clashes between police and protesters.
Seemingly, Jewish organisations around the world are scared by the recent developments in France. Once again, they clearly failed to appreciate the growing mass fatigue of Shoah indoctrination and belligerent lobby politics. However, I would contend that instead of whining about the “rise of anti-Semitism”, Jews better, once and for all, learn to ask why?  Why the Jews again? Why are they hated? What is it in Jewish politics that evokes so much resentment? Why does it happen time after time?
It wasn’t easy for me to admit in my latest book that Jewish suffering is actually embedded in Jewish culture. In other words, Jews are actually destined to bring disasters on themselves. Jewish politics and culture, unfortunately, is obnoxious, abusive, as well as racist, and supremacist to the bone. Jewish culture is set to infuriate the Goyim just because Jews are defined by negation – that chilling sensation of being hated.
Interestingly enough, early Zionism, was a promise to change it all. Herzl, Nordau, Borochov and Weizmann believed that a “homecoming project” would transform the Diaspora Jews into ethical new Israelites.  They were sure that a settlement project would make the Jew lovable and respected.  But they were obviously wrong. Zionism was destined to crash.  In spite of being driven by anti-Jewish sentiments, Zionism was quickly defeated by Jewishness (Jewish spirit, culture and ideology). It matured into a vile chauvinist amplification of every possible crude Jewish symptom it was initially supposed to eradicate.   


Many Jews around the world are commemorating the Holocaust this week. But if I am correct, maybe the time is ripe for Jewish and Zionist organisations to draw the real and most important lesson from the Holocaust. Instead of constantly blaming the Goyim for inflicting pain on Jews, it is time for Jews to look in the mirror and try to identify what it is in Jews and their culture that evokes so much fury. It may even be possible that some Jews would take this opportunity to apologise to the Gentiles around them for evoking all this anger.
I would willingly take this opportunity and make an apology, but I have not been a Jew for a while now.

Rise of the right: Theresa May under pressure as the leader of ultra-nationalist Hungarian party Jobbik prepares UK visit

The Home Secretary is under increasing pressure from Jewish groups and others to ban the Hungarian ultra-nationalist party from spreading hatred at a London rally this weekend


Gabor Vona, who used his new year message earlier this month to call for the chemical castration of criminals, is due to address “sympathisers” of his far-right party, Jobbik, on Sunday to drum up support among expat Hungarians ahead of national and European elections in the coming weeks.
Jobbik officials denied that Mr Vona, whose party is accused of seeking to legitimise virulent anti-semitic and anti-Roma views in Hungary, will use his visit to meet leaders of the British National Party and the Greek Golden Dawn movement, whose members have expressed admiration for Hitler.
Nick Griffin, the BNP leader, said last month that the three parties had a “common core set of values” and he was seeking a formal alliance with Golden Dawn and Jobbik, which is Hungary’s third largest party, for the European Parliament poll in May.
The expected arrival in London of the leader of Jobbik, which has 43 seats in the Hungarian parliament and three in the European Parliament, is the source of deep upset among Jewish groups, politicians and members of Britain’s 100,000-strong Hungarian population.
Andrew Dinsmore, a former Labour MP and now a member of the London Assembly, has written to Mrs May asking for Mr Vona to be banned from entering Britain and for Scotland Yard to intervene to prevent the Jobbik gathering in central London, due to be held a day before the annual Holocaust Memorial Day.
He said: “The Home Secretary must take a stand to stop Jobbik’s message of hate being broadcast on the streets of London. Jobbik are the most powerful outwardly fascist political party in Europe. Their level of support in the Hungarian elections shows how their message of hate has spread.”
A Facebook page for the event showed that 57 people have so far declared their intention to attend, including a woman describing herself as a children’s music teacher in east London. Another supporter said he would be travelling from Bristol by coach.

In a letter to Mrs May, Jewish leaders backed the calls for a ban, saying that the arrival of Mr Vona and a fellow Jobbik MP, Sandor Porze, would be “an affront to the values we hold dear and is disturbing to the British Jewish community, as well as other minorities”.
The statement on behalf of four leading Jewish groups, including the Board of Deputies, implored Mrs May to make “every effort to prevent these Jobbik representatives from propagating their despicable views and hatred in the UK”.
Hope not Hate, the anti-fascist group, condemned the planned visit, saying it was wrong for Mr Vona to be allowed to voice his “politics of hatred” in Britain.
The Home Office last night declined to comment on the calls for a ban. The Independent understands that a bar on Mr Vona is nonetheless being actively considered under provisions which give the Home Secretary the power to exclude an individual if his or her presence is not “conducive to the public good”.
Scotland Yard said it was aware of the Jobbik rally and “assessing” the information.
Formed a decade ago, Jobbik has rapidly grown by espousing a mixture of anti-globalisation economics, hardline law-and-order policies including the introduction of a “three strikes” rule and a barely-concealed agenda against “Israelis” and Roma people.

In November 2012, Marton Gyongyosi, the party’s deputy parliamentary leader and its leading voice on foreign policy, called for a security register of Hungarian Jewish legislators and ministers. Hungary, which imposed one of the most thorough extermination policies of the Holocaust while under occupation, has a population of about 100,000 Jews.
Mr Gyongyosi said: “I think such a conflict makes it timely to tally up people of Jewish ancestry who live here, especially in the Hungarian parliament and the Hungarian government, who, indeed, pose a security risk in Hungary.”
When the World Jewish Congress held its annual gathering Budapest last year, Jobbik held a rally in the Hungarian capital during which Mr Vona told supporters: “The Israeli conquerors, these investors, should look for another country in the world for themselves because Hungary is not for sale.”
The former history teacher, who at 35 appeals to Hungary’s disenfranchised young, has also frequently used his role to attack Hungary’s Roma population, calling for a special “gendarmerie” to be set up to tackle “gypsy crime”.
He once said: “We must produce an environment in which gypsy people can return to a world of work, laws and education. And for those unwilling to do so, two alternatives remain: they can either choose to take advantage of the right of free movement granted by the EU…or there is always prison.”
Jobbik did not respond to the criticisms but insisted that Mr Vona’s visit to London was intended purely for a Hungarian audience. A spokeswoman said: “This is a forum for Hungarian citizens. This is not to do with anyone else. There are lots of Hungarians living in London and the election is coming up in Hungary.”

A right character: Gabor Vona

Like many far-right politicians, Gabor Vona has an  eye for controversial  gestures as well as xenophobic politics in the search for electoral popularity.
When he was sworn in as a member of the Hungarian parliament in 2010, the leader of the Jobbik party defiantly wore a black vest reminiscent of those worn by the country’s pro-Nazi groups of the 1940s despite warnings that he could face prosecution.
The garment was part of the uniform of the Hungarian Guard, a vigilante group set up by Jobbik to work  alongside police in districts with a high population of Roma Gypsies and subsequently banned.
Born in 1978, Mr Vona was a co-founder of Jobbik in 2003 and became party leader three years later, pushing it to win more than 16 per cent of the vote with a mixture of populist economics laced with attacks on minorities including Jews and Roma.
He denies his party is  extremist. In his new-year message to supporters he called for the return of the death penalty and the introduction of chemical castration for sex offenders.

Parking warden says he was sacked for having a golly key ring

The keyring Mike Bower was found with
The keyring Mike Bower was found with
A parking warden says he was sacked after being found with a golly key ring at work.
Mike Bower, 52 worked as a Civil Enforcement Officer in Bury from March last year but says he was fired in December.
A complaint was made against him after the key ring was found hanging from his locker at the depot of firm NSL, who provide parking services on behalf of Bury council.
He claims it must have fallen from his keys and been put there by a colleague.
But Mike, who lives in Radcliffe, Bury, and has been married for 14 years, was suspended in early December and was informed he was being sacked on Christmas Eve.
The company say his dismissal also related to a Facebook comment which referenced a fellow staff member and a “a serious act of discourtesy towards a colleague.”
The firm said the incidents breached their diversity and communications policies.
He appealed the decision but was unsuccessful.
It is understood all staff had already been spoken to in October regarding previous allegations of racism and bullying.
And a letter informing him of the outcome of his appeal said: “...to introduce this (the key ring) into the workplace in these circumstances could be construed as best naive and poor judgment and at worst as provocative.”
Mr Bower, who has previously lived in Canada and Greece, has now hit out at the ‘disgusting’ decision and says he intends to take legal action for unfair dismissal.
He said: “I’m absolutely disgusted. There is nothing offensive about it, it is just a key ring.
“I told them that but by the end of the day I’d been suspended.
“Now I’ve ended up losing my job over it.
“The matter is with my solicitors and I intend to fight it all the way.”
The golly was a children’s literary character created by Florence Kate Upton in the late 19th century, and was inspired by a minstrel doll.
The doll was adopted as a mascot by the jam manufacturer Robertson’s in 1910, but was dropped in 2001 following accusations of racism.
However Mr Bower denied the item having any racial overtones.
He said he had contacted numerous organisations including the leader of Bury council Mike Connolly, the Home Office, his local MP Ivan Lewis and the Human Rights Commission about his case.
He has also contacted the key ring manufactures themselves who he says told him it was not offensive and that the item was ‘one of their bestsellers.’
He said: “I used to have one of the dolls as a child.
“I bought the key ring at a car boot sale because it was big and it would stop me losing my motorbike keys.
“I had a Scooby Doo one which was similar.
“Someone has decided to make it racial, which is completely wrong.”
A spokeswoman for NSL said: “We can confirm that a CEO was dismissed from his employment with NSL on 23 December 2013.“The grounds for dismissal involve breaches of the NSL Diversity Policy, the NSL Communications Policy, and for committing a serious act of discourtesy toward a fellow colleague.
“An appeal was recently held, which upheld the dismissal.”

Golden Dawn- the voice of the Greek people !
Subtitled 

Wednesday, January 22, 2014



Glasgow City Council have imposed a change of route for Sunday's parade after failing to negotiate a settlement with the organisers.

The counter-protest had been arranged by a recently-formed militant Loyalist group called the Regimental Blues, which met with Police Scotland about its plans last Wednesday.

A report on the matter before the authority's public processions committee today stated : "There is clear written evidence that a counter-demonstration against this procession will be mounted.  What is not clear is the extent and size of this demonstration and whether any attempt will be made to disrupt the procession.

" The group had wanted to march from the Kelvingrove Park area in the west end, through the city centre, past the cenotaph and on to Glasgow Green, a route it had not previously taken but said it had selected as it was combining parades with another grouping.

Concerns were also raised about music being played when passing churches in the city centre.

At today's meeting, the council permitted the march to go ahead but said it had to take a route from Royston in the north of the city, via High Street on the city centre's eastern periphery to Glasgow Green.

A council spokesman said: "The details of the procession could not be agreed by negotiation. Committee ruled that the procession should follow the same route as in previous years."

The move came after it emerged that the council has forwarded a petition by the Regimental Blues regarding a senior authority official to Police Scotland. A spokesman claimed many comments on the petition were abusive and threatening.

Drax protesters' undercover police case convictions quashed

Mark Kennedy  
Mark Kennedy was an undercover police officer for the Metropolitan Police for seven years
Twenty-nine people sentenced after a power station protest at which an undercover police officer was working have had their convictions quashed.
Protesters boarded a freight train carrying coal to the Drax plant near Selby in North Yorkshire in June 2008.
The case against them involved undisclosed information gathered by undercover officer Mark Kennedy.
Court of Appeal judges quashed the convictions over a failure to disclose Mr Kennedy was working undercover.
The decision follows an announcement in 2012 by the then Director of Public Prosecutions that he had concerns over the safety of convictions.
The convictions were overturned by the Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas, Mr Justice Simon and Mr Justice Irwin.
'Underhand tactics' Lord Thomas said: "There was a complete and total failure, for reasons which remain unclear, to make a disclosure fundamental to the defence.
"In those circumstances, this court has no alternative but to quash the convictions."

“Start Quote

It underlines further the need for public independent inquiry into the use of political policing”
Beth Stratford Spokeswoman for the 29
Outside court, Beth Stratford, speaking on behalf of the 29, said: "We are pleased because this shines a light on the underhand tactics of the police and the Crown Prosecution Service in their policing of political movements.
"It underlines further the need for public independent inquiry into the use of political policing."
The Drax protest lasted 16 hours, causing delays to numerous freight and passenger services, and the clean-up operation cost Network Rail nearly £37,000.
Participants were sentenced at Leeds Crown Court in 2009 and 2010 for obstructing the railway.
They were charged with obstructing engines or carriages on railways, which is an offence under the Malicious Damage Act 1861.
Some were ordered to do 60 hours of unpaid work and others were given conditional discharges.
Speaking about Mr Kennedy's involvement, Lord Thomas said the undercover officer, who hired a van and transported activists to the site, kept a detailed record of what happened and made reports to his handler, who communicated them to senior West Yorkshire police officers.
He said: "None of that was disclosed at the trial or at any time prior to it."
The protest in 2008 During the protest coal was shovelled on to the track to stop the train moving
The judge said his involvement was "either the fault of the police or someone at the CPS or possible counsel involved" and said each of those interviewed had "given a different account".
Lord Thomas said it could not be categorically stated that the event would or would not have happened without Mr Kennedy's involvement but if it had been disclosed, as it should, issues would have been raised before the trial as to whether there had been an abuse of process.
The judge asked counsel to prepare written submissions on the question of who should be responsible for the "substantial" legal costs incurred, to be decided later.
Questioning why the Ministry of Justice should foot the bill, he said: "This is a plain case of fault, either by the West Yorkshire Police or the CPS, so why shouldn't they pay?"
Mr Kennedy spent seven years undercover, infiltrating left-wing protest groups and travelling to 11 different countries on 40 occasions.
His actions undercover led to the collapse in 2011 of the case against six protesters accused of planning to invade the coal-fired Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station in Nottinghamshire and led to a review of police undercover tactics.

Palace reshuffle as the Queen passes more royal responsibilities to Prince Charles

THE relocating of staff within Buckingham Palace suggest that the first steps are being taken to bring Prince Charles to the throne.


 Steps are being taken to hand royal duties over to Prince Charles Steps are being taken to hand royal duties over to Prince Charles [ GETTY]
A merging of palace staff has begun, which sees Prince Charles' aide become the media chief for the entire Royal household.

The heir to the throne will also accompany his mother to the beaches of Normandy later this year.

The trip is to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, Charles accompanying the Queen on the trip further adds to speculation that it may be the monarch's final engagement overseas.

A French government official, who was involved with organising the D-Day anniversary events, revealed that: "We have been told this will probably be the Queen's last official foreign visit."

A French government advisor
A source said that no official decision had yet been made, claiming: "Invitations are still coming in and we are assessing them on their merits."
These recent changes in the palace are being interpreted by many as an effective 'job-share' of the monarchy as the Queen grows old.

Charles will stand in for his mother at some of the day's major engagements, further signs that he is increasingly taking on the role as monarch.

Royal aides are expected to make the announcement this week, revealing that the Prince's media team has been merged with that of the Queen.

The single communication pod will be based in Buckingham Palace and headed by Prince Charles' aide Sally Osman, in a move masterminded by Her Majesty's private secretary Sir Christopher Geidt.

The Queen has made 261 official visits during her 62-year-reign.

She turns 88-years old in April and has steadily been passing responsibilities to younger members of the royal family including Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Nick Griffin, Leader of the British National Party and member of European Parliament, speaks out against the treacherous persecution of Golden Dawn in a joint press conference including Eleni Zaroulia, Ilias Kasidiaris and Artemis Mathaiopoulos.
Nick Griffin is a close contact with us here at Golden Dawn New York and many of his party members frequently check this site for updates in English on matters regarding the situation in Greece.
The attack on Nationalists all over Europe is a problem that brings us closer together. It is certainly ironic that the EU, which claims to be in support of preventing conflicts between nation states in its borders, is actually causing them instead.
The true nationalists are forging ties that will crush this Zionistic EU monstrosity once and for all!

Nick Griffin losing in Court yet again !
This morning (7/1/2014) in Court 57 of the Royal Courts of Justice, Nick Griffin and Simon Darby faced another costs hearing, resulting from their long running and disastrous attempt to bring civil actions against several former BNP officials – Kenny Smith, Nicholla Ritchie (now Mrs Smith), Steve Blake and Ian Dawson.

Griffin and Darby lost the first stages of this case as long ago as April 2008, lost the final stage in December 2010, and lost subsequent appeals.  A few days ago Griffin was bankrupted in Welshpool County Court following an action by his own former solicitors, whom he had failed to pay.

Griffin and Darby were also of course ordered to pay the other side’s costs, and characteristically they have tried to drag out the process, tyring to avoid the bill for their hubris.  A first instalment of £45,000 was eventually paid.

Today they were ordered to pay an additional instalment of £22,500 within 28 days.

Yet another costs hearing in the case is now scheduled for Friday 21st March.  This is to allow the Official Receiver, who is now in charge of Nick Griffin’s affairs, to make representations if he so wishes.  The total costs bill in this case is likely to be more than £130,000 (in addition to Griffin and Darby’s own costs).

Anyone considering making a donation to the British National Party should be aware that – contrary to Mr Griffin’s assertions – party funds are unlikely to be safe from Griffin and Darby’s creditors in this and other cases.  Remember that today’s long running case (though the largest) is only one of several legal liabilities confronting Griffin and his party.

Nick Griffin did not turn up to court today, though Simon Darby and Clive Jefferson did.  Surprisingly Heritage and Destiny was the only media organisation represented!

Buy-to-let tycoon evicts tenants on benefits in favour of Eastern Europeans - because 'they are better at paying rent'

  • Fergus Wilson has sent eviction notices to 200 tenants on housing benefit
  • He said Eastern Europeans less likely to default on rent than Britons
  • Mr Wilson said many other private landlords had taken the same decision
A buy-to-let tycoon has banned housing benefit tenants in favour of Eastern European migrants who he says are more likely to pay their rent on time.
Fergus Wilson has sent eviction notices to 200 tenants on housing benefit and said he would not accept any more welfare applicants.
The former maths teacher, who built up one of Britain’s biggest buy-to-let empires with his wife Judith, said his decision was based on experience as he had found Eastern Europeans were less likely to default on rent payments than Britons on housing benefit.

He said many other private landlords had taken the same decision, a claim echoed by housing charities including Shelter. It warned ‘benefit blackspots’ were forming across Britain as claimants have been forced to move out of popular areas.
Private landlords have the right to refuse or accept tenants, and recent evidence suggests they do not want those who rely on housing benefit.
Research from the National Landlords Association in December revealed that the number of private landlords letting to people on benefits had dropped to just one in five.
Mr Wilson, 65, said housing benefit rates had gone down in recent years, while private rent had gone up.
 
‘The gap is such that I have taken the decision to withdraw from taking tenants on housing benefit,’ he told The Guardian. ‘From what I can gather just about all other landlords have done the same. Our situation is that not one of our working tenants is in arrears – all those in arrears are on housing benefit.’
Mr Wilson said the housing shortage in the South East meant there was strong competition for rental properties, and he now preferred tenants from countries like Poland, who were more likely to pay their rent on time.
He said private landlords run their properties as a business and have to make decisions based on economic factors.

‘Tenants on benefits are competing with Eastern Europeans who came to the UK in 2005 and have built up a good enough credit record to rent privately,’ Mr Wilson said.
‘We’ve found them to be a good category of tenant who don’t default on the rent. With tenants on benefits the number of defaulters outnumbers the ones who pay on time.
‘Single mothers on benefits have been displaced to the bottom of the pile; sympathy for this group is disappearing. There aren’t enough places for people to live.’
Mr Wilson and his wife, also a former maths teacher, started their property empire in 1986.
They were said to have been on the brink of financial ruin in 2008 after banks stopped lending in the credit crunch, but were saved when the Bank of England slashed interest rates and held them at a historic low.
They now own nearly 1,000 properties around Ashford in Kent and their property empire has been valued at an estimated £225million.
Around nine million people pay rent to a private landlord. Shelter said some 500,000 claim housing benefit.
Its spokesman Roger Harding said the refusal of some private landlords to accept welfare claimants as tenants meant they were forced to leave desirable locations and accept poor quality housing.
He said: ‘If this continues we will see blackspots where people on housing benefit simply  cannot find anywhere reasonable.’
NWN: It's filth like this that should be taxed to high heaven by the Government. All these types care about is counting their money. Patriotism is totally alien and he probably gives donations to the main parties who are bringing in all these immigrants.

BNP leader Nick Griffin declared bankrupt but will stand again in Euro elections (and is writing a leaflet on dealing with debt!)

  • Earns a salary of £76,000 as an MEP plus generous Brussels allowances
  • Owes £120,000 to solicitors hired to fight European Commission, court told
  • Insists it will not stop him standing in Euro elections in May
British National Party leader Nick Griffin has been declared bankrupt, it emerged today.The outspoken politician insisted he will continue as a member of the European Parliament and run for re-election in May.
He brushed aside the idea that his financial problems would end his political career and revealed he is writing a booklet on dealing with debts.

As an MEP Mr Griffin enjoys a basic salary of around £76,000, plus extra basic allowances worth £46,000 with more for travel and accommodation.
A listing at the Insolvency Service showed Mr Griffin was declared bankrupt at Welshpool and Newtown County Court yesterday.
 
The BNP said that Mr Griffin had run up debts of £120,000 to solicitors Gilbert Davies & Partners, which represented him in the early stages of legal action against the European Commission.
He had offered to repay 42p for every pound he owed to all his creditors but this was rejected by the courts.
Mr Griffin was elected for the North West region of England in 2009

Politicians declared bankrupt used to be barred from seeking election again, but the rules were changed in 2002 meaning it no longer prevents someone from being an MP or MEP, or standing for election.
In a statement Mr Griffin said: 'This order will not prevent me fighting for the interests of the British people or leading the British National Party to a fresh round of electoral victories.
'It’s of no political significance whatsoever.  I will take whatever is thrown at me and deal with it.
'I champion the right of the British people to their land and I will never surrender.
'On a practical note, I am now much better able to advise and help the huge numbers of decent ordinary folk in my constituency who have financial difficulties of their own.
'I will be producing an advice booklet on dealing with debt very shortly and can speak from personal experience rather than from an ivory tower in Brussels.'

Mr Griffin will be automatically discharged from bankruptcy in one year, on January 2 2015, in accordance with the Insolvency Act. He was elected for the North West region of England in 2009.
Advice published by the Electoral Commission said bankruptcy in itself does not bar someone from being a member of the European Parliament or standing for election.
Restrictions are only triggered if an individual is made subject to a bankruptcy restrictions order or debt relief restrictions order.
The Insolvency Service said such orders had not been made in Mr Griffin's case.

Bankers' very happy new year: RBS boss gets £1.5m shares after three months in job as 115 Goldman Sachs executives pocket £3m each

  • Ross McEwan only took over the State-backed bank in October
  • He was given stock as compensation for missing out on bonuses
  • Announcement made after markets closed for New Year holiday
  • Archbishop says foreign banks 'in denial' about their role in crisis
  • Barclays boss admits it could take decade for sector to win back trust

Fury over bankers' pay erupted again last night after the new boss of RBS was quietly handed an astonishing £1.5million in free shares.
Ross McEwan, who only took over the State-backed bank in October, was given the stock as compensation for missing out on bonuses at his previous employer.
The announcement was made after markets closed for the New Year holiday, and was seemingly designed to attract minimum publicity.
Mr McEwan's payout emerged as Goldman Sachs revealed 'obscene' pay deals worth more than £3 million each to 115 of its senior bankers.
The bumper packages were disclosed as Archbishop Justin Welby said foreign-owned banks in the City of London were 'in denial' about their role in the financial crisis, and Barclays boss Antony Jenkins admitted it could take a decade for the sector to win back public trust.
Deborah Hargreaves, of the High Pay Centre, said: 'When you look at the pay everyone else is getting, to see bankers on that kind of salary is just not justified.'
She added: 'We live in a country where some people are being forced to go to food banks because they can't feed themselves, so it's obscene to see bankers being paid £3 million on average. It's an outrageous indictment of a civilised society.'
New Zealand-born Mr McEwan, who is paid a basic salary of £1 million, was given 454,106 RBS shares when he joined the bank in 2012 as its head of UK retail to make up for leaving his job at Commonwealth Bank in Australia. In October, he became chief executive after Stephen Hester walked away from the role.
The 454,106 shares were paid out to Mr McEwan yesterday, with a value of £1.53 million. RBS issued a statement confirming the figures only after the stock market had closed for the year.
 
Mr McEwan immediately sold 214,019 of the shares to cover tax liabilities arising from the vesting, but will hold on to 240,087 shares, worth £816,775, which he will not be able to sell for six months.
He is entitled to a further 1.05million shares – worth £3.5 million based on RBS's closing price yesterday of £3.38. They can't be vested until August 2015.
An RBS spokesman said: 'Ross McEwan will not sell any shares in RBS while he is chief executive of the bank. He wants everyone to have confidence that his interests are 100 per cent aligned with our customers and our shareholders, including UK taxpayers.'

Goldman, meanwhile, said 115 of its top staff around the world shared a cash pool worth £122 million, or more than £1 million each.
But senior bankers are also entitled to a bonus paid in shares, which are awarded in three instalments and cannot be cashed in for five years.
The shares are currently worth a combined £250 million, or £2.2 million for each recipient. Taken with the cash, this adds up to a payout of more than £3 million a head.

Goldman employs 5,000 staff in London and 32,400 worldwide. The bank's role in the global crisis came under heavy scrutiny in 2010, when it was slapped with a £333 million fine by US regulators over claims that it misled investors.
New rules limiting what banks in the European Union can pay in bonuses come into force today. They will be banned from paying bonuses worth more than a banker's annual salary, or twice as much as their pay if sanctioned by shareholders. But most banks are expected to raise basic pay in order to offset the decline.
'[Ross McEwan] wants everyone to have confidence that his interests are 100 per cent aligned with our customers and our shareholders, including UK taxpayers.'
RBS spokesman
Mr Welby, an Eton-educated former oil executive who sat on the influential Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards, said many bankers did not understand how the industry's culture of high risk and reckless pursuit of profit had brought the global economy to its knees.
'I don't want to name names but I came across some people recently who were senior members of the City from foreign organisations, but who were very clearly still absolutely in denial about what happened in 2008,' he said.
Mr Welby called on banks to think harder about their role in society. But he was forced to admit that the Church had yet to sell £80,000 worth of shares in Wonga, the controversial payday lender that has been attacked for charging sky-high interest rates.
Mr Jenkins, speaking in his role as a guest editor of Radio 4's Today programme, said: 'Trust is a very easy thing to lose and a very hard thing to win back. In my view it will take several years – probably five to ten – to rebuild trust in Barclays.'
Mr McEwan's first three months as chief executive have been beset by problems, including an IT failure that left 750,000 customers of RBS, NatWest and Ulster Bank unable to use their credit and debit cards for hours. He branded the failure 'unacceptable' and vowed to 'do better'.
NWN: These are the people who must be challenged, as the paid politicians won't.

Roma already in Britain 'are defecating on people's doorsteps' says top Tory council leader as she warns of burden that Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants will place on public services

  • Philippa Roe of Westminster City Council says council taxpayers will face rising bills from Bulgarian and Romanian immigration
  • Claims that Roma immigrants have been begging aggressively and behaving in an unsanitary way
  • Tens of thousands of Eastern Europeans expected in UK from tomorrow
  • Police boss says Romanians are already most likely to be criminals
A leading Conservative has warned that council taxpayers face rising costs from the influx of Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants set to start tomorrow - and claims that Roma are already causing trouble by begging aggressively and defecating in public.
Philippa Roe, leader of Westminster City Council, said that local authorities had 'no idea' how many Eastern Europeans would come to Britain after immigration restrictions are lifted on January 1.
And a police commissioner in the Midlands revealed that more crimes are committed by Romanians than by any other group of foreign nationals in his area even before the rules have changed.
Many Tories and immigration campaigners have been warning for month that tens of thousands of Romanian and Bulgarian citizens are set to come to Britain when laws banning them from are repealed tomorrow.

Ms Roe said today that some members of the Roma community have already been causing trouble in Central London with their aggressive and unhygienic behaviour.
'You've only got to wander around Marble Arch at 7.30 in the morning to see the camps,' she told The World at One on BBC Radio 4.
 
'We have people walking out of their front door to find people sleeping on their front doorsteps, people defecating on their front doorstep - it's extremely unpleasant and it goes with the very aggressive begging and pickpocketing and other sorts of crime in the area which affects both residents and tourists.
'It's this minority one is really concerned about, but it is this minority that has this really big impact.'
She added: 'We have been trying hard to make sure we are prepared but one of the issues we face is we just have no idea how many people are going to come to London and draw on our resources.'
Warning: A council leader has said that even before the expected immigration influx there have been problems with Roma sleeping rough and behaving in anti-social ways

ROMANIA APPOINTS NEW CONSUL IN BRISTOL BRINGING TOTAL NUMBER IN BRITAIN TO EIGHT

The Romanian government has appointed a new consul to an eighth British city ahead of an expected influx of immigrants from the Eastern European country.
Razvan Constantinescu became honorary consul officer to Bristol this month, shortly before the UK planned to open its borders to Romanians on January 1.
The country already has representatives in Belfast, Cardiff, Inverness, Leeds, Liverpool, Morpeth and Southampton, as well as the ambassador based in London.
Mr Contantinescu, who works at Bristol City Council fighting human trafficking, says he is keen to establish direct flights from Bristol to Romania as well as boosting business links.
He insisted that fewer of his countrymen would migrate to the UK than is often predicted, pointing out that thousands are already here.
'Most of the Romanians who wanted to come over to Britain to set up in business, to explore working opportunities, have already done so,' Mr Contantinescu said.
Shortly before Christmas, the Government rushed through new rules to ban immigrants from receiving unemployment benefits for their first three months in the country.
However, Ms Roe called for this limit to be extended even further, saying: 'I would much rather it had been a year, if not two years.'
Staffordshire's Police and Crime Commissioner said that Romanian criminals were more prolific than those from any other foreign country and expressed fears that the problem would only get worse.
Matthew Ellis said that he was seeking talks with Home Secretary Theresa May in a bid to mitigate the impact of a large number of poor immigrants arriving at the same time.
It is understood that 981 Romanians were arrested in Staffordshire between April 2010 and September 2013, followed by 967 Polish nationals and 636 Lithuanians.
In total, 7.5 per cent of all arrests in the county involved foreign nationals.
'I am currently talking to the chief constable about the new changes,' Mr Ellis said today. 'This is an area where Stoke-on-Trent is seeing a significant rise in the number of people who are not only being placed there by the state as asylum seekers but also foreign nationals moving there.
'It's clear that their cultures are slightly different and their expectations are slightly different.'

MigrationWatch UK, which campaigns against unrestricted immigration, has claimed that Britain will be the most lucrative destination in the EU for new immigrants despite the new rules on benefits.
'Britain's generous benefits system acts as a pull factor for migrants from across Europe,' said chairman Sir Andrew Green.
'There must now be a renegotiation of the benefit system in the EU which was designed before 100million people in much poorer countries joined the EU.
But business leaders have welcomed the impending arrival of Bulgarians and Romanians, saying it will help boost the workforce and strengthen the economy.
The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that 55 per cent of its members believe immigration has had a positive impact on the capital.
The UK imposed seven-year restrictions on Romania and Bulgaria after they joined the EU in 2007 - only allowing citizens a visa if they were self-employed, had a job offer, or were given a specialist role.
 
NWN: Some of us have been telling everyone for almost 40 years about immigration. But few listened.The Roma have been described as the 'scum of the earth' by many. They seem to be coming here en masse.
