Gay couple call BNP Nick Griffin ‘an idiot’ after he posts address on Twitter
The gay couple whose address was posted on Twitter by British National Party leader Nick Griffin have called him ‘an idiot’ as police investigate the incident.
The far-right politician, who has since hit back again to complain about the priorities of the police force, tweeted the address of Michael Black and John Morgan after the pair won damages against the owner of a bed and breakfast who refused them a double room.
The couple said today they were shocked by Mr Griffin’s comments, although he has spoken out to defend his actions this morning.
Mr Black, 64, told BBC Breakfast: ‘I think Nick Griffin has got very little support in the country.
‘Certainly the public response to the incident, when it happened two and a half years ago, and again in the last 24 hours, has been overwhelmingly in support of our stand against discrimination.
