Crushing Defeat for Neo-Nazi Creepazoid
The leader of the far right party was trounced by Labour’s Margaret Hodge who kept her Barking seat in dramatic fashion.
The culture minister won with a majority of more than 16,000 to keep the east London seat and deny the BNP what would have been a political earthquake.
Mrs Hodge, 65, then delivered a devastating attack on Mr Griffin and what she described as the “Battle of Barking”.
She said: “On behalf of all the people in Britain we in Barking have not just beaten but we have smashed the attempt of extremist outsiders.
“The message of Barking to the BNP is clear, get out and stay out. You are not wanted here and your vile politics have no place in British democracy.”
