Boy George condemns "Britain For The British"

Not all immigrants pull the ladder up as soon as they get theirs. Some - the best ones - remember all they went through.


George O'Dowd, 48, better known to the world as Boy George, has strongly defended his Irish heritage and his multicultural outlook from the "racist" British National Party (BNP), who he says are currently attacking asylum seekers and Eastern Europeans as the cause of all Britain's woes.
