Fair comment on BNP leader

The Sunday Sun isn't my usual reading, nor swearing customary here, but as we're all grown ups ...

ONE of the funniest stories of the week involved Tauriq Khalid, who was charged with using racially abusive threatening behaviour to BNP leader Nick Griffin.

Griffin claimed Mr Khalid called him a “white b******” in his home town of Burnley, Lancashire, in November last year.

However, the defendant insisted he called him a “f****** w*****”.

After a three-day trial at Preston Court, the jury took just 45 minutes to agree with Mr Khalid that he had called Griffin a “f****** w*****”, decided it was fair comment, and cleared him.

It restores your faith in the system of justice in Britain.
