BNP candiate in court for burning Koran

One Sion Owens, a BNP candidate for the Welsh Assembly in the May 5th elections appears in court in Swansea this morning charged with burning a copy of the Koran.

Strangely, although the alleged Koran-burning took place six months ago in Mr Owens's back garden it wasn't until his name was put forward as a BNP candidate for the imminent elections that the police saw fit to raid his house in the middle of the night and arrest him and his disabled partner against whom no allegation has been made. The BBC don't see fit to report this factoid, nor did they find room to report that Mr Owens received substantial out-of-court damages for a previous wrongful arrest.

The BNP website has the details.
