Commenting on today's Court of Appeal ruling that SERCO could dismiss BNP councillor Arthur Redfearn as a driver because of the health and safety threat posed to the vulnerable adults and children he was employed to transport, TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said:

'We welcome this clear and robust ruling today. SERCO were right to say that BNP activists should not hold this kind of job, and deserve credit for taking on this case that has now established this important precedent.'
