BNP hit with £170,000 bill for Marmite legal case

The Sunday Mirror reports today that Unilever have reached an out of court settlement with the British National Party over the unauthorised use of the Marmite brand in an election advertisement, understood to be worth up to £170,000. Given the party’s extant financial troubles, what led Griffinfurher on the kamikaze course of a legal dispute with a multinational corporation?

It seems the oiks were obsessed with revenge against Unilever, whose advertising campaign (video) featuring the leader of a fictional “Hate Party” bore, it was claimed, a remarkable resemblance to Mr. Griffin.

Scrapbook wonders what gave him that impression?

A clasped-hand pose surrounded by the book shelf and desk stand, the flag and the war medals. Just where have we seen that before?

Déjà vu!
