Britain First allowed to use Lee Rigby's name on ballot papers

The Electoral Commission has apologised to the family of murdered soldier Lee Rigby after allowing the extremist Britain First Party to use the slogan "Remember Lee Rigby" on ballot papers in Wales.

The anti-Islam party, which has links to the BNP, EDL and English Democrats, is only contesting EU elections in Wales and Scotland and has a different slogan registered for Scotland so most people will be spared from their opportunist propaganda.

UKIP is the only party to ban past and present members of Britain First and other racist parties and organisation from joining.
