Capital unrecognisable thanks to immigration – Griffin
October 23, 2009
BNP leader Nick Griffin has hit out at the way London has been transformed over the years, claiming uncontrolled immigration has “changed it beyond all recognition”.
The far-right party chief criticised the capital as he complained that the Question Time show he was controversially allowed to appear on on Thursday night was filmed at BBC Television Centre in London.
Mr Griffin, 50, said: “London is no longer a city my grandparents would recognise. It is changed beyond all recognition. Many of the ancestral Londoners have left over the last 20 years because they can no longer call it home.”
But London Mayor Boris Johnson hit back, saying: “Nick Griffin is right to say London is not his city.
“London is a welcoming, tolerant, cosmopolitan capital which thrives on its diversity.
“The secret of its long-term success is its ability to attract the best from wherever they are and allow them to be themselves – unleashing their imagination, creativity and enterprise.
“The BNP has no place here and I again urge Londoners to reject their narrow, extremist and offensive views at every possibility.”
