Ex-BNP Islamophobe elected to Scottish council

Colin Wyper

Spin Watch draws our attention to the fact that former British National Party member Colin Wyper has been elected as an independent to Dumfries and Galloway Council.

Wyper has written: “I was and still am terrified of Islam, of their gradual and steady takeover of the western world.”

There are reportedly 200 Muslims living in the region, out of a total population of 148,200. So anxieties about the Islamification of Dumfries and Galloway are perhaps slightly overstated.
