Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito

"Once more onto the beach, dear friends!"

"I believe that the judges understand that we have sought to abide by the law and that the ECHR kept moving the goalposts to try to find new ways to attack us. We are nearing the end of this now and only have to get through a further two-day hearing on technical legal points before judgment will be delivered."

The preceding paragraph is an extract from Chairman Nick's latest bulletin/appeal re the continuing saga of "Jarndyce v Jarndyce". I mean, of course, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) v the British National Party, as personified by its senior officers, Mr Griffin, Mr Darby, and Ms Lumby.

Mr Griffin seems to blame a different body entirely for the BNP's woes. He seems to believe that it is all the fault of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) rather than the EHRC.

Perhaps this is understandable. After all he doesn't seem to find it easy to turn up at the correct court, or to turn up on time - or even to turn up.

If dyslexia is to blame then Mr Griffin can take comfort from the fact that Winston Churchill was similarly afflicted. Well, at least, according to Richard Barnbrook he was.

Mr Griffin might have chosen to quote that famous phrase of Churchill's: "Give me the job, and I will finish the tools". That's close enough to what he said for Mr Griffin's purposes, anyway.
