Nick Griffin, BNP party leader,has criticised the amount of Leprechauns coming into the country amid fears they are not assimilating into society and stretching social services.When questioned by David Dumbledore on Quiz Time, Mr Griffin was asked how you could spot a Leprechaun, to which he replied "you just know."
A Leprechaun spokesman, however, rebuffed Mr. Griffin’s claims. “We make every effort to assimilate, but humans fail to take into account our special needs. We get ignored in pubs and shops because we cannot be seen over the counter. We try to find work but the only jobs offered are as Garden Gnomes. You just don’t understand how insulting it is to a Leprechaun to be compared to mere Gnomes. They don’t even have magic powers, you know”.
France has already banned the wearing of the very tall Green hat, saying that it is unconstitutional and not representative of modern France.There have been angry scenes at the Danish Embassy after klan schwiest, a cartoonist from Danish Newspaper Viking Times, recently published a cartoon of a mixed race marriage bewteen an Elf and a Leprechaun, causing anger in the community.
Mr Griffin denied racism over his "no place like gnome" jibe,in reference to suggesting they should be repatriated back to their place of birth."All they do is come over here and steal our pots of gold",he said.
The minister for minorities exclaimed:"Far from being a drain on the public purse, Leprechauns do in fact bring real benefits. It is well known that most have direct access to hidden treasure buried in times of old. We are currently in negotiation with the Leprechaun Bank to identify ways in which these reserves can be used to stimulate the economy following the credit crunch. Their shoe making skills are also much in demand at present."
