Breaking news! I've just been 'expelled' without trial from the #BNP! That'll teach me to tell a member of staff he's a 'useless, lazy twat'— Nick Griffin (@nickjgriffinbnp) October 1, 2014
Apparently he had been causing "disunity by deliberately fabricating a state of crisis" in the party. Sounds tense.
Obviously the news was met with huge sadness and disbelief.

Nick had harsh words for the mainstream press.
Nick Griffin declines to talk to BBC. Responds to my text: The members and I will sort it all out without resorting to the BBC gutter.— Ross Hawkins (@rosschawkins) October 1, 2014
Maybe it was his upbringing...
Poor Nick Griffin, rejected again. He had a difficult childhood, you know. He was always the black shirt of the family.— paul bassett davies (@thewritertype) October 1, 2014
The reaction could be heard across the country.
I did an Edna Krabappel style "HA!" when I heard this. Vile man: 'Nick Griffin expelled from British National party' http://t.co/sVcE2Zzo84— Jane Wright (@janewright) October 2, 2014
Obviously Griffin's professional capabilities were called into question.
But some people did see fit to offer advice on a next career move.
Please, for the love of god, can the Quilliam Foundation please not attempt to rehabilitate Nick Griffin?— Michael Chessum (@michael_chessum) October 2, 2014

Of course he could always go into showbiz.
They should make a Big Brother style show just for Nick Griffin and Tommy Robinson. But don't broadcast it, just leave them locked in— Will Black (@WillBlackWriter) October 1, 2014
Kate sought to put our minds at rest.
Rest assured they'll replace Nick Griffin with another bigot to protect us from invasion. Our borders will be safe again soon.— Kate Varley (@KateVarley2) October 2, 2014

And this cartoon is worth a special mention.
