NICK GRIFFIN, the leader of the far right BNP Party in the UK was turned away from the Buckingham Palace garden party.

Griffin, was one of 8,000 guests invited to attend by the Queen. A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace told The Daily Telegraph: “Nick Griffin MEP will be denied entry to today’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace due to the fact he has overtly used his personal invitation for Party political purposes through the media

“This in turn has increased the security threat and the potential discomfort to the many other guests also attending.

In a statement on the BNP site Griffin said “The reason is invented nonsense,” Mr Griffin said. “Nowhere in the book of rules given to all attendees does it say anything about not giving media interviews and of course countless people have done precisely that in the past.”

Griffin previously posted a blog asking for suggestions on what he should say to the queen “if we met by the cucumber sandwiches”

He also said it was unfair that BNP MEP Andrew Brons was still going when he had been banned.

The invitation was extended to Griffin as he is a Member of the European Parliament and officials pointed out they did not wish this to be a mark of disrespect against his democratic office. “However, we would apply the same rules to anyone who tried to blatantly politicise their attendance in this way,” the spokesperson said.

Griffin described the decision as “an outrage” and “thoroughly anti-British”

Griffin said he did not “blame the Queen” and claimed Buckingham Palace was under “enormous pressure from the Lib Con coalition” to withdraw his invite.

OBAMA’S POPULARITY among Americans has plummeted, according to the latest opinion polls. Confidence in the president has slipped as almost six out of ten voters said they now lack faith in his ability to make decisions for the country.

The result is a complete reversal of polls following the beginning of his term 18 months ago in which 60% had confidence in his decisions. His public approval ratings in the past year have been heavily affected by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster and his health care reform, which some Americans viewed as a socialist plan.

Controversial posters funded by the Tea Party Movement have begun appearing in the US. The movement, backed by extreme conservatives, opposes high tax rates and what they consider excessive public spending.

Although confidence in his decision making is low, Obama retains a good approval rating overall of 50%. Newsweek writes that the president’s main flaw is in not being better at blaming the problems he inherited at the start of his term on his predecessor, George Bush.
