Hanvey concerned at British Freedom Party’s doorstep activity

Alliance Councillor Eric Hanvey has said he is disgusted by attempts of the British Freedom Party to align itself with Christian fellowship.

The group where distributing leaflets in South Belfast on Tuesday afternoon.

He said: “This group has only ever been interested in spreading hate and causing division within our society. It is extremely disheartening to see them attempting to take this message to the doors of South Belfast under the guise of Christian fellowship.

“I would appeal to local people not to be taken in, to see it for what it is – the latest attempt of a party aiming to find a forum to spread racial hate.

“It’s also an affront to all those who are dedicated Christians and I find it absolutely disgusting that the British Freedom Party think it is acceptable to use the faith of others for their racist message.”
