Apology noted, now resign
Mr Walker is right to apologize for his disgraceful and criminal behaviour. It's a pity he does not also apologize for bringing the BNP into disrepute as he quite clearly has.
Mr Walker was lucky to have escaped a custodial sentence for his crimes. Dangerous driving is a very serious offence, for which offenders are very often imprisoned.
The alleged delinquent tendencies of the children (children, not "youths" as Mr Walker dishonestly refers to them) concerned are irrelevant. What kind of example did Walker set these alleged delinquents by his criminal and antisocial behaviour? He behaved much worse than they and with much less excuse, being a middle-aged adult.
The judge in Walker's trial, one Mr Nolan, very oddly bent over backwards to extenuate his guilt and to laud his character to the skies. When has a judge ever before had a good word to say about a known BNP activist that appeared before him in court on any charge whatsoever, let alone charges as serious as those to which Walker pleaded guilty? Ironically, it is the very fact that Walker is such a rotten apple and yet continues to hold such a senior position within the party that, in this instance, actually saved him from a gaol sentence.
The Judiciary is one of the three branches of government. There are many connections, personal, professional and political, between the members of the three branches, members of the Establishment all. In addition, the legal profession itself, of which judges do not cease to be members when they sit on the Bench, is very closely related to the profession (or should that be 'trade'?) of politics and there are a myriad of links between them.
Quite clearly, the judge in Walker's case recognized the value to the Establishment of which he is a member, of Mr Walker continuing to hold high office within the BNP and thereby continuing to perform an invaluable function as a high profile exemplar of all that is wrong with the BNP and with nationalism generally.
Any decent member of the public, any decent and sensible voter, looking at Adam Walker and noting both his criminal tendencies and his senior position with the BNP, would conclude that they wanted nothing to do with such a party and nothing to do with the ideology which it supposedly espouses. This is exactly the opinion that the Establishment would wish them to form, hence the judge's expressed hope that Walker does not lose his employment with the BNP's two MEPs, Messrs Griffin and Brons.
Griffin and Brons, if they continue to employ Walker, effectively condone his criminality and thuggery. By doing so, they insult every decent remaining member of the BNP, as well as all those activists who sacrificed so much in order to build the party to the point at which it became possible for it to have MEPs elected.
Instead of unjustly victimizing BNP members for asking questions about the party's money and where it has gone and expelling them for exercising their right of free speech, in order to voice perfectly legitimate criticisms of its leadership, that leadership should take action against those who have genuinely brought the party into disrepute and are its real enemies.
Only they won't, of course, because, unlike the decent activists, whom they regard as expendable mugs, they are all cut from the same cloth.
