The irony with respect to the BNP’s parlous finances seems to be lost on the authors. The purchase of a Boeing 767-200 at a cost of $160m would certainly be of interest to the party’s creditors, which include the Equality and Human Rights Commission, law firms and former employees.
Sale of the airliner would certainly be enough to pay for deposits in European elections — something the BNP is apparently struggling to do.
- Nick Griffin was declared bankrupt in January
- His former deputy Simon Darby is also bankrupt
- BNP officials are liable for debts as party is not incorporated
