Interestingly, the Guardian today picked up on a nuance in the BNP election story. The party, now elected to the European Parliament would have to employ staff which can only be selected pursuant to equality laws. We all know the terms of the RRA S.4:
4. F1 ...applicants and employees.— (1) It is unlawful for a person, in relation to employment by him at an establishment in Great Britain, to discriminate against another—
(a)in the arrangements he makes for the purpose of determining who should be offered that employment; or
(b)in the terms on which he offers him that employment; or
(c)by refusing or deliberately omitting to offer him that employment.
