THE British National Party’s annual conference was in Liverpool. MEP Nick Griffin praised  a “hard core” delegates for attending the conference. There were about 70 people at the Wavertree Cricket Club. There wer about 30 protestors outside.

The BBC notes:

The delegates backed a motion supporting quantitative easing.

Anyone who was planning to write a parody of the BNP need not bother…

Note: Wavertree Cricket Club’s website features An Equity Code:

ECB Cricket Equity Policy.

1. Statement of Intent

1.1 The ECB is fully committed to the principles of equality of opportunity and aims to ensure that no individual receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, gender, disability, race, ethnic origin, nationality, colour, parental or marital status, pregnancy, religious belief, class or social background, sexual preference or political belief. This includes job applicants, employees, participants, volunteers and spectators.

1.3 The ECB specifically supports initiatives by other organisations within cricket which recognise the principles of equality of opportunity and treatment such as the International Cricket Council Anti-Racism Policy and the Professional Cricketers Association’s Racism Awareness Campaign.

2. Purpose of the Policy

2.1 The ECB recognises that certain sections of the community may have been affected by past discrimination and may have felt denied the opportunity to participate equally and fully in sport at all levels.

The club’s policy features the line:

All members must respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Any Muslim, black, Hindu, Jewish or Catholic members of the club care to comment on the BNP being allowed to host a conference in the place?
