  • Why on earth should a lawyer not be a member of the BNP? The threatening, creepy authoritarianism of New Labour Quangocrats like Christine King should be exposed for what it is: crawling to political masters and a disgusting abuse of power

  • Surely Christine that should of read 'if I were a Solicitor and had NO CONCERN about equality and diversity I wouldn't instuct a chambers that didn't take action on this?' Is this the famous equality that states you are free to hold any opinion as long as its mine?
    I regularly hear that lawyers should come from every section of society. So why not from the Nationalist community?
    It's very easy to work for Amnesty, and talk of human rights in far away places, but it appears it's harder to practice what you preach in this country.
    There is no suggestion that Mr Grierson has treated any client in a less professional manner because of their faith or colour, so why the very clear threat of economic boycotts of him or any other BNP member based soley on their viewpoint?
    Robert Grierson has stood up for what he believes in and should be defended, not condemmed. Perhaps he should of joined a Conservative Party front organisation and pretend it was a 'campaign group'.
    Liberal/leftist lawyers talking democracy while intimidating someone with a different view. Well that really is a stain on the legal profession!

  • What a brave man. I'm sure there are far more who just keep their heads down because of fear of losing their livelihoods thanks to veiled threats like those from Christine Kings.

    This is a man to be admired. His political convictions have outweighed his desire to make money.

  • “I couldn’t stay in a chambers that had a member of the BNP as a member and expect that many colleagues would find it difficult".

    Change the words 'member of the BNP' in this statement to 'Muslim'. Now how does that square with 'Blind Justice'?

  • I find it difficult to understand why someone in the (bnp) should be ostrisized from there job,no matter what profesion.It goes to show that the ruling elite are frightend of losing there positions of power,and will do anything to hold on to them.At the end of the day its up to the voters at election time,not the p.c brigade .

  • Mr Grierson is clearly a brave and honourable man who puts his country's interests before his own. My Father who died recently also attended Downing College Cambridge. Any legal work required by myself from this time forth will be on its way to Mr Grierson.

  • Nice to see someone with a bit of backbone who's willing to do something to save this country from complete destruction.

  • Good for Mr. Grierson, a straw in the wind. If we were all ready to make such a sacrifice for our poor old country we could transform her fortunes beyond recognition!

  • So would the legal world find it difficult to work with some one who was a card carrying communist, or a member of the i.r.a, or a member of islam 4 uk?? perhaps you should all brush up on sharia law , because in 25 years time that will be the only law of the land,

  • On the contrary, it is hardly a stain on your profession to stand to stand up for what you believe in, rather than be part of this left wing cancer that is eating away at everything this country has stood for since the Second World War. How is it right for the media to report almost daily how immigration is ruining this country, but at the same time calling the BNP racist for having said this for years, and actually wanting to do something about it? Why is it wrong to want this immigration to stop? The BNP want to pull out from the EU, so does most of this country. They want our boy’s home from Afghanistan, so does most of this country. We are glad this gentleman is standing. We will vote for him, and we make no apology for this what-so-ever.
