A Much Less Eventful Affair

After yesterday's shenanigans at Nick Griffin's press conference in Westminster, it seems the BNP took extra measures today to ensure their leader could actually speak to reporters in Manchester.

Having not been allowed to hold their meeting in Manchester Town Hall, they settled on the Ace of Diamonds pub as a venue. The owner was sure to let them in there, given he's a BNP candidate.

Nick Griffin seems to have taken umbrage to the Manchester Evening News, and while their sister TV station Channel M were not allowed to enter, MEN reporter Yakub Qureshi did manage to get in.

You can read his report here.

There were apparently around 50 anti-BNP protesters outside the pub, but there was no repeat of yesterday's disturbance. I don't think this press conference will be making tomorrow's front pages.
