Former pop star and alleged kiddie botherer, Michael Jackson, stunned fans today when he announced that he was to join the British Nationalist Party.
In a further twist, Party Leader Nick Griffin was sensationally booted out, after returning from holiday with a tan.
Party spokesman, Bob Skinhead said today, "Rules is rules, If you're not white you don't get in." Asked if the BNP had any other policies other than being white, Mr Skinhead replied, "Nope."
When our reporter pointed out to Mr Skinhead that Mr Jackson used to be black and showed him the 'Off the Wall' album, a clearly confused Mr Skinhead replied, "Oh bollocks!."
The BNP has been under pressure recently, after the unseasonably hot summer meant that many sunbathing members were ejected from the group. The 'Tan ban' has upset many stalwarts of the party and things look set to get even worse as global warming means that Britain is heating up.
A leading scientist told us last night, "As the world gets warmer, many Britons will get darker. This obviously poses problems for groups such as the BNP and they may need to come up with some sort of colour chart, like what you get in B&Q when choosing paint."
