BNP leader Nick Griffin has been invited by the electoral commission to come outside into the fresh air. Mr Griffin, 51, a life-long member of the National Front and the BNP has been forced to remain under a protected lock-down inside his home in Welshpool, Powys by a group of angry students from the local technical college.
"Allowing Nick Griffin to step outside, even to breathe is an affront against the British democratic tradition." Exclaimed local A-level politics student Huw Somerset-Nahbady.
The electoral commission has entered a landmark courtcase between itself and the Institute of Reactionary Students where the judge, Justice Graham Van Der Bananarama ruled that Griffin must make physical visual contact between himself and a member of the commission to validate his leadership of the party.
In request over the phone for comment, Mr. Griffin responded: "I don't see what the problem is? I've offered to send my glass eye as confirmation of my existence yet that isn't enough. John Major sent his personality to the commission when he was unable to attend a meeting in 1993 and that was deemed acceptable. It's typical of the institutions of this country to discriminate against hard-working white politicians with glass eyes. Well, the British people will not put up with it any more".
The European Parliament was asked for comment on the matter of Nick Griffin being unable to attend plenary, the press officer replied "qui?".
The situation continues to develop.
