BNP candidate Sion Owens faces ‘Koran burn’ charge

The fact that the BNP is a dubious political party really makes no difference because this would happen to anyone who burns or insults Islam while on British soil. Had these fellows burned a Bible or Torah none would be in jail. If one wants to understand what is really going on in Britain simply compare this story to how the U.K. police refuse to investigate the rapes and murder of white British children, the desecration of English graves at the hands of Muslims and dhimmis and the hatred preached in mosques and Islamic schools in Britain. [There are simply to many examples to chose from for this last one so google away]

If Britain had a sound it would be that of a toilet flushing.


BBCNEWS… A BNP candidate for next month’s Welsh assembly elections has been charged with a public order offence, after police were passed a video appearing to show him burning a copy of the Koran.

Sion Owens, 41, was named as a party candidate for the South Wales West regional list last week.

He is due to appear at Swansea magistrates’ court on Monday.

A second BNP election candidate has been arrested in connection with the incident, and released on bail.

A BNP spokesperson said both would still be candidates in the assembly election on 5 May.

On Friday, police were given a video which appeared to show Mr Owens dousing a copy of the Koran with a highly flammable fluid, before setting it alight and watching it burn.

Later that day he and another of the party’s candidates for the assembly election, Swansea East candidate Joanne Shannon, were arrested.

Mr Owens was charged on Saturday night. He is in custody in Swansea, and due to appear in court on Monday.

Ms Shannon has been bailed pending further inquiries

  1. Feck’ em, burn another one, hell, burn five, burn fifty. This sort of stuff
    Should be ignored or
    ridiculed as loudly
    and publicly as possible

  2. I wonder who ordered the arrest, all this has done is make a hero out of Sion Owens and made the attitude of the BNP slightly more palatable to the British voters. If the authorities keep doing this they will make the BNP a power in British politics.

  3. The mail newspaper online has not allowed comments on this story as they are afraid
    of the responses from the British public.

  4. The Muslim man convicted of burning the Poppy on Remembrance Day was fined a mere £50. Yet Sion is remanded in custody and the Home Office rush to make condemnation of Koran burnings specifically. It seems that there is a heavy-handed response to the burning of Korans but a softly, softly approach to the extremists and fanatics who choose to insult our war dead.

  5. I think there is an important distinction to be made between Emdadur Choudhury’s burning of a large poppy on Armistice Day and Sion Owen’s burning of a Qur’an last week. Choudhury burnt his large poppy in a public space where there was risk of injury to others. Choudhury therefore committed a public order offence. Owen burnt his Qur’an in his own garden – i.e., within the bounds of his own property – where, apparently, there was no risk of injury to others. Owen therefore, as far as I can see, committed no offense – and yet, remarkably, he has been charged with a public order offense.

  6. That perhaps sums up the insanity of pre and post islamic irrational bad influence in UK and in other parts of the world.
