There’s a huge amount of racism in this country, overwhelmingly it is directed towards the indigenous British majority, which is one reason we’ve done so well in these elections.
- Nick Griffin
Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons were elected to the European Parliament in June 2009.
They take office for five years and, over that time, will receive £5.2m of public funding.
Inside the European Parliament, MEPs sit in political groupings rather than with MEPs from their own country, but Griffin and Brons could not find enough like-minded people to form their own group, so they sit on their own.
