FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RACIST GRAFFITI ATTACK AIMED AT BRITISH NATIONAL PARTY CANDIDATE
At around 15:15pm today, 25th November 2008, the British National Party (BNP) candidate, Pete Molloy, for the Belle Vale ward in Liverpool, received a phone call from a member of his community informing him that a black mixed race male had just spray painted on the wall of the Coronation public house “Burn BNP” and on the bus stop out side the public the same mixed race male sprayed “Fuck P.Molloy” in black spray paint. This is the second time in as many days that the Coronation public house, on the corner of Childwall Valley Road, has had the racist graffiti sprayed on its walls.
Its is believed by Pete Molloy that it has been in response to him being arrested with 12 others on Saturday 22nd November 2008 for handing out the Party’s brochure, “Racism Cuts Both Ways – The Scandal of Our Times” in Liverpool city centre.
Pete Molloy said, “I totally condemn this act of racism aimed at me and my Party. This act as come just 24 hours after Saturday’s unlawful arrests, which was reported on local radio and in the local press. It is obvious a racist attack by the description of the person. Many of our members around the country have received many threatening phone calls with all our details being leaked on to the internet last week. I have reported this incident to Merseyside Police at Belle Vale Police station in case I receive any more racial or any other threats.”
The male seen at the scene is described as about 6” tall, wearing black trainers and a black parker coat and is of black mixed race appearance.
Pete Molloy added, “This incident just proves that white people can also be victims of racism and we were totally justified in handing out the racism cuts both ways brochure to members of the public to highlight this fact.”
