This doesn’t do honour to the BNP as much as it brings the barristers’ profession into disrepute. Reply Link A.N.Other 30 March 2010 at 10:08 This flies in the face of the stereo-typicalism associated with the BNP’s make-up comprising soley of skin-headed hooligans. It should really give the government concern, if not a stern wakeup call, when respectable professionals choose this avenue of politics. I note that south wales has a chartered engineer running for a seat on behalf of the BNP too. Reply Link S. Olicitor 30 March 2010 at 22:36 I’ll be reluctant to instruct St Philips from now.

More to the point, have a look at the comments on the previous article about this story. You’d be amazed – nay appalled – at how many closet fascists appear to exist in our ranks.

Just goes to show that spending a few years at Uni and a couple in the Inns of Court doesn’t confer actual respectability, just the veneer.
