In BNP world, truth stranger than fiction

This is an April Fool's joke:

The Sun published a story today about BNP leader Nick Griffin being stripped of his degree – a spoof from a Cambridge student magazine

(Guardian newsblog, Saturday 3 April 2010)
This isn't:
BNP official Mark Collett questioned over alleged threat to kill Nick Griffin... Police arrest publicity director accused by BNP leadership of plotting 'palace coup'

(Guardian, Sunday 4 April 2010)
Hopefully, the latest shenanigans will, if nothing else does, put the final boot into Griffin's parliamentary ambitions.
