Adam Walker case thrown out

The politically motivated persecution of Adam Walker has finally ended in a victory for freedom of speech.

Today the General Teaching Council dropped all charges against BNP activist and teacher Adam Walker, in a case that has dragged on for 3 years.

BNP Leader Nick Griffin, Deputy Leader Simon Darby, MEP Andrew Brons and GLA member Richard Barnbrook demonstrated at the HQ of the GTC along with dozens of BNP activists. All welcomed the verdict as a major victory for freedom of expression.

BNP leader Nick Griffin was among those present and claimed Mr Walker had been "outrageously persecuted" for his political beliefs.

He said: "The charges about supposed racism, racial intolerance, and so on, have been thrown out.

"The committee have upheld the right of Adam Walker and every other teacher in the country to criticise Government policy in no uncertain terms."

Asked about calls from leftwing quarters for BNP members to be banned from teaching, Mr Griffin replied: "Teachers obviously have to keep politics out of the classroom. As long as they do that they should be entitled to hold whatever political views they want."
Adam Walker is now free to teach again with immediate effect.
