Pop diva Lily Allen launched a vitriolic attack against the racist British National Party in Sydney last night.

Appearing before more than 6,000 in the city’s Hordern Pavilion, the 24-year-old singing sensation told her fans: “The British National Party, who are a bunch of racist motherf******* and homophobic c**** managed to win seats in the European Parliament which is really, really twisted and sad and I hope it’s not a sign of our times. I hope it’s not the same in Oz as where I come from.”

Although the BNP claims on its website that the “Jews are their natural allies”, the British Board of Deputies has denounced the Party as being extremely antisemitic.

33-year-old Londoner Nick Williamson was in the audience with his Asian girlfriend. He told J-Wire: “Lily is well-known for supporting the right causes and her feelings for them are often reflected in her lyrics. She always uses strong words and I enjoy experiencing her spirit. The crowd went wild in support of her statement.”

Scottish comedian Billy Connolly stunned an audience at the Sydney Opera House a few years ago when he used similar expletives in attacking the Swiss, claiming they were sitting on millions of dollars of Jewish money from World War II…and that if the rightful owners are not known, it should go to Israel.
