BNP legal officer lays criminal charge against the singer
29th April 2010: Ghanaian-origin rap singer “Lethal Bizzle” is in line of BNP’s fire, after he allegedly called for Nick Griffin’s murder on Twitter.
British National Party’s legal officer Lee Barnes has laid a criminal charge against the singer.
A Twitter message by Lethal Bizzle reads: “Got an idea, u wanna be famous? Kill the BNP leader, u will be a hero.”
Describing it as a threat, Barnes said it could not be taken lightly. “This constitutes a serious threat,” Barnes said, adding Bizzle’s twitter was clearly an incitement to serious violence against Nick Griffin
Imagine if a threat like that had been issued by Griffin against Bizzle. The BNP leader would have been arrested within minutes, but it seems that black rappers are somehow protected, Barnes said
