BNP man loses bid to win £60,000 from T&G union over expulsion

A member of the far right British National Party has lost his bid to win £60,000 in compensation for being expelled from one of the country’s biggest trade unions.

John Walker was seeking damages from the Transport & General Workers Union, which expelled him for expressing views which were contrary to its rules.

Walker, a leading member of the BNP in Wales, took his complaint to an employment tribunal, which has ruled against him.

In a written judgment, the tribunal said that comments made by Walker, including telling a local newspaper he was “standing up for the interests of the white community” could encourage racism.

A spokesman for the union described the ruling as “very good news”.

Walker is believed to be considering an appeal.
