'No surrender!': BNP leader Nick Griffin's response to being declared bankrupt
Griffin says his bankruptcy won’t prevent him from staying on as an MEP.

THE LEADER OF the British National Party Nick Griffin has been declared bankrupt, but he has insisted that it is a ‘good day’.

The UK’s Insolvency Register today published details of the case which was filed yesterday and will expire one year from now.

Griffin, the chairman of the controversial right-wing nationalist party and an MEP, tweeted a number of responses to the bankruptcy, saying it will not stop his involvement in politics.


In a statement issued this morning, the BNP say that the primary creditor to whom Griffin owed money was a former solicitor.

They say that Griffin had made an offer to pay a portion of the debt as part of an Individual Voluntary Arrangement but that this was been rejected by the creditor and as a result the bankruptcy order was made.
