Peter Tierney was charged following a protest outside Liverpool Crown Court The National Front candidate for the Liverpool mayoral election has been charged with a public order offence. Peter Tierney, 55, from Hale, Cheshire, was one of four people charged following a protest outside Liverpool Crown Court on Tuesday. Their protest related to the trial of 11 men accused of being part of a sexual exploitation ring in Rochdale.
Mr Tierney, who also uses Quiggins as his surname, is due to appear before Liverpool magistrates on Thursday.
A spokesman for Liverpool City Council said the charge did not affect his eligibility to stand as a candidate in the election on Thursday. Merseyside Police said a 38-year-old woman and two men aged 46 and 54 also faced the same charges. They were arrested after allegedly refusing to comply with an order specifying where protesters can gather.
A 22-year-old man was cautioned for breaching a notice under the Public Order Act and a 16-year-old boy from Netherley was given a youth reprimand for the same offence. A seventh person - a 32-year-old man - who was arrested for taking photographs inside the court building has been cautioned.
NWN: So now it's the NFs turn for their candidate to get their 'collar felt' ? You know, we at NWN cannot but think that the Police on Merseyside are operating a politically motivated campaign here at the behest of their political masters.
The establishment have for years operated a 'criminalisation' strategy against nationalists.Then the 'controlled mass media' can say; "oooh look, the BNP/NF/EDL etc., are all just a gang of criminals".
We think it is also why all these women in London are being charged with 'race crimes' even though they probably just remarked of the changing face of Britain, from a white country to a black one. This campaign by 'the state' is to silence opposition to their plan to ethnically cleanse the UK of British people.
