BNP boss calls for demo outside gay couple's house

Cambridgeshire police on Thursday said they were probing complaints against far-right political leader Nick Griffin after he called for a demonstration outside a gay couple’s house.

The British National Party chief posted online the address of Michael Black, 64, and John Morgan, 59, after they earlier won their case against a bed and breakfast owner who refused to allow them to stay in one of her double rooms due to religious reasons.

A civil court ruled that Susanne Wilkinson, owner of the Swiss Bed and Breakfast in Cookham, Berkshire, had been directly discriminatory in her treatment of the pair, who live in Brampton, Cambridgeshire.

She was ordered to pay £3,600 in damages, which the couple said they would donate to charity.

But their joy was tempered when Griffin took to Twitter to protest the decision.

His first messages read: “If anyone can give us address of the 2 bullying ‘gay’ activists who’ve won case v Christian BB owners, we’ll hold demo… for rights of all home owners, gays included, to rent or not rent rooms to whomsoever they wish.”

Two hours later, he added: “A British Justice team will come up to (their address) give you (Black and Morgan) a… bit of drama by way of reminding you that an English couple’s home is their castle. Say No to heterophobia!”

Wilkinson and her husband claim they have received two years of abuse since the incident.
