Police investigate BNP Leader Nick Griffin after complaints about his Twitter comments after gay couple win damages from Cookham B&B owners
NICK Griffin, leader of far right party the BNP, is being investigated by police after inflammatory remarks about the gay couple who won damages from a Cookham B&B owner who turned them away.
Controversial Euro MP Mr Griffin has sparked anger after the comments on Twitter by Mr Griffin, who revealed details of where Michael Black and John Morgan live.
Police have received complaints about the tweets.
Yesterday the couple were awarded a total of £3,600 for being unlawfully discriminated against by Susan Wilkinson, proprietor of the Swiss B&B in Terry's Lane, Cookham.
They were not allowed to stay at the guest house in March 2010 because Mrs Wilkinson said it went against her religious convictions as a Christian.
The civil court victory could become a landmark case on discrimination.
Controversial Euro MP Mr Griffin took to the social media website to put his views on the matter.
He wrote: "If anyone can give us address of the 2 bullying 'gay' activists who've won case v Christian B&B owners, we'll hold demo … for rights of all home owners, gays included, to rent or not rent rooms to whomsoever they wish.
"A British Justice team will come up to [their address] & give you a … bit of drama by way of reminding you that an English couple's home is their castle. Say No to heterophobia!"
The internet postings have been widely condemned, with Mr Griffin facing severe criticism.
Mr Morgan admitted the tweets have made them feel 'uncomfortable' but they are not expecting a mass demo outside their home.
Mr Black has said the politician has missed the point and thinks he has been merely chasing headlines.
But Mr Griffin has defended his comments today, denying they were menacing and hitting out at the law.
