Fascists join attack on Ian Blair

Joining the Daily Mail in an attack on Sir Ian Blair, the BNP rallies to the defence of police officers who made abusive remarks about Muslims, including a reference to Shi’ites as “Shitties”:

“Sir Ian described the remarks at the heart of this week’s employment tribunal defeat as Islamophobic: ‘That language was gratuitous, offensive and deliberate. Officers can expect to be disciplined for using language like that. I want this force to have no place for racism’. If I was one of those officers I would now look at suing Sir Ian for libel and abuse of authority within the Police. Not only is the language not racist as defined in common law, but it is also a fact that Islam is a religion not a race.”
