GREENWICH COUNCIL SUSPENDS MEMBER OF BRITISH NATIONAL PARTY

A caretaker who has been convicted for racist offences has been suspended from his council job in Greenwich, south-east London, because of his membership of the British National Party (BNP), reports the Independent (p4).

Ian Dell was sent home after colleagues reported seeing him with the BNP group which was involved in last week's violent incidents in Brick Lane, Whitechapel, east London.

Mr Dell, who worked on a multi-racial council estate in Plumstead, confirmed he was found guilty of threatening behaviour towards a black person at an east London by-election last year.

Mr Dell said his political beliefs did not interfere with his contract with Greenwich council.

A Greenwich council officer said membership of an openly racist organisation could be seen as incompatible with the council's policy of providing equality of service, the Independent reports.
