BNP leader Nick Griffin was embroiled in a row with Marmite earlier today following his behaviour at a party meeting. Griffin attended the meeting at Stoke-on-Trent wearing only a thin layer of Marmite. He urged party members to "try a lick and see if they liked it".
His stunt was criticised by Marmite's parent company, Unilever, who said "All of our brands have no political connection whatsoever."
Griffin was also facing criticism from party members.
Tony Hooligan, spokesman on ethnic cleansing, said "He looked like a Paki! We can't have him wandering round like that. People will start thinking that the BNP is a load of nutters. Honestly, it gives National Socialism a bad name."
Griffin is not the first politician to smear Marmite all over his body. He is, however, the first to be so bold about it.
An unrepentant Griffin said "You either love me or you hate me. You can't ignore me. All those who dislike Marmite will be deported under a BNP government."
