BNP man's vile 'W**s' tirade

A BNP candidate was exposed as a hate-mongering racist today after he posted on his Facebook page: "W**s go home."

Eddy O'Sullivan also wrote on the social networking site: "They are nice people 'oh yeah' but can they not be nice people in the f**king Congo or . . . bongo land or whatever?"

O'Sullivan, 49, who is standing for the Far Right party in next month's European elections, also joined a vile online group called F**K ISLAM.

When challenged about the sickening comments the driving instructor astonishingly DENIED they were racist.

But red-faced BNP chiefs say he faces possible suspension and de-selection as they probe the shameful remarks.

In conversations posted on Facebook over a number of days, O'Sullivan said: "Life to British Culture . . . W** culture go home.

"People from other countries are just NOT on our wavelength. . . or am I wrong?"

He also set his status as: "W**s go home, Gurkhas very welcome."

In an online exchange with the BNP candidate, another user suggested: "They come to live in England so they should treat it like England or f**k off, even better not come here in the first place!"

O'Sullivan replied: "oooh that is drastic. . . but you are right and you are not breaking any law when you say that."

O'Sullivan is fourth on the BNP's North West list for Euro candidates.

He said: "It was supposed to be a private conversation between individuals. I also may have had a drink at the time. I don't believe those comments are racist.

"I'm not a racist and that is that. I don't regret saying anything because it was a private conversation."

His Facebook profile was publicly viewable, which meant it was accessible to anyone on the site, but it has since been taken down.

O'Sullivan's details have also been removed from the BNP's website.

Clive Jefferson, North West organiser of the BNP, said: "That is unacceptable and I'm going to suspend him from the party and from the European candidacy.

"There's freedom of speech and there is unacceptable language and I think this is unacceptable."

Simon Darby, deputy leader of the party, added: "If he has made these comments on a public website then it is a serious matter."
