The wit and wisdom of Nick Griffin

The leader of the British National Party responds to news of the identification of Richard III’s skeleton with this piece of Wildean wit:

According to the 2011 census, 214,403 inhabitants of Leicester were born in England – 65% of the total population. So there’s evidently a large majority of native English people living in the city. Of course, for all the BNP’s assurances that it rejects racism, when Griffin writes “Englishman” what he really means is “white person”.

Even if we were to accept that bigoted definition, there are 148,629 people living in Leicester who categorise themselves as “White; English/Welsh/Scottish/Northern Irish/British” – 45% of the population. By contrast there are 61,440 Muslims living in the city – 18.6% of the total.

So, still some way to go before the Muslim hordes accomplish the Islamification of Leicester.
