Tottenham Court ‘bomb’ suspect was the BNP candidate for Stevenage

HOPE Not Hate is reporting that Michael Green, the man arrested in the Tottenham Court Road the “siege” (Sky), “disturbance” (BBC), “nuisance Scotland Yard) and “afternoon off” (every worker) once represented the BNP as the party’s parliamentary candidate for Stevenage.

Michael Green, 48, has been charged with possession of a weapon, false imprisonment and making a bomb hoax. HNH says Green, of Stevenage, Hertfordshire, was the BNP candidate for his town in the 2010 General Election. Green polled 1007 votes. He came fifth.

Lest you be unsure what to make of this, the BNP Chairman Nick Griffin went on twitter to opine:

“Police say hostage taker is ‘mentally unstable’. No shit, Sherlock!”

Indeed.
