Dear Nick Griffin...


Half of my ancestry is of the sort of Anglo-Saxon stock that you revere (possibly with a small dash of Celt, the sort of thing you mention to reinforce the notion that yours is a British rather than English party). The other half is Polish Jewish, a rag-tag bunch that came over in about 1900, economic migrants and asylum seekers.

Should I send my legs back to where they came from?

As far as I have discovered (and I have close on 20,000 people in my genealogy database) I have no ancestors from outside of England - in fact I have just discovered that a gt.gt.grandfather who was born in Ireland had Staffordshire parents.
Therefore, when all of my friends are deported (including Mrs S who is definitely of the brown persuasion) I shall be one of the seven other people left to live in England with that odious cunt Griffin.
(Is it OK to say "Griffin" on your page?)

tsk stupid man - the thing is about nationalism,, why do they choose this arbitrary cut off point? People always arrived from somewhere else. What about the Gauls, eh, or the Vikings? How far back do you go? Or is it just do with being white? It reminds me of my stepmother, who sounds off occasionally about them 'coming over here'... One day I'll have the courage to point out that she is a) married to a Yid and b) ancestrally from Ireland...

I'm descended from Jutes.

er, I meant the Romans, not the Gauls. *shame*

I think Nick Griffin keeps changing his mind about who he thinks should be in this country. Not that I'm suggesting that he's an inconsistent, gibbering idiot of course.

At the moment he is mostly hating Muslims.

Pardon my knowledge of history but didn't the "Anglo-Saxons" actually invade Britain?
