- Update : The leak has become a media torrent. And the list has gone viral. Such is the nature of the intarwebs I guess. Fuehrer Griffin and his Party are threatening use of privacy laws they’ve apparently vowed to abolish, while an article in the Press Gazette also references Redwatch: Seven journalists appear on leaked BNP member list, November 19, 2008. A naughty police officer is also under investigation — membership of the BNP being against police regulations. Dunno if the same rule applies to the armed forces, prison guards and vicars but. As for joining the BNP: “What do I get for joining the British National Party? BNP members not only get the satisfaction of knowing that they are contributing directly to the vital work of building the Party. You will also receive a plastic credit card style membership card and our monthly membership bulletin ‘British Nationalist’. Membership runs for 12 calendar months from the issuing of your card.” As an added Bonus!, your name, home address, phone number, email address and even occupation and hobbies will be published online.

Cor blimey, the BNP membership list got leaked!
http://bnpmemberslist.blogspot.com/ was one location where the list was published, but it’s since been closed. However…
There’s obviously been a fair bit of wailing and gnashing of teeth following this latest debacle, but the person (or persons) responsible have yet to be identified. In the running are filthy red hackers, or possibly ex-BNP Treasurer John Walker. Jilted John got the arse recently after clashing with BNP fuehrer Nick Griffin, and speculation is rife among fascist trolls on teh Intertubes that he may have enacted his rewenge by leaking the list.
In Australia, there’s a handful of whinging pommy bastards with the dubious pleasure of claiming membership of the foreign trouble-making association. Unsurprisingly, all are blokes. In the white power stakes, Queensland comes out on top, with six men displaying bulldog spirit, followed by NSW with three, VIC and WA equal third with two, and one schmuck in SA and TAS.
Of most concern to the thousands of mentalists whose names, addresses, contact details, occupational status and in some cases even hobbies are zooming up, down and across the informational superhighways will be those handful belonging to the police, armed forces and other state and public institutions. As has been noted in The Daily Telegraph (BNP membership list leaked onto internet, November 19, 2008):
A police officer, more than a dozen soldiers, a vicar and a Chelsea pensioner have been named on a list purporting to comprise the entire membership of the British National Party… On the list are 16 servicemen, including a Royal Marines Commando. Among the 68 members listed as former servicmen are one Chelsea pensioner, three Paras, three Guards and two Royal Marines. One BNP member is listed as a Church of England vicar… According to Lancaster Unity, the anti-fascist group that first reported the list’s publication [Entire BNP membership list goes online, November 18, 2008], other members are noted as construction managers, receptionists, district nurses, lay preachers, company directors and teachers.
Some of whom will presumably be bracing themselves for some rather awkward workplace conversations. Well, apart from Rod Lucas: “TalkSport radio said it would ‘no longer use’ DJ Rod Lucas who covered late-night shifts for the station earlier this year” after he was outed as being a big fan of a Whites-Only Britain. [See also : DJ named on BNP member list joined to research story, The Guardian, November 19, 2008.]
Curiously, Rod Lucas recently (November 2) got a guernsey on BNP leader’s Simon Darby’s blog (Simon is “currently serving as both Director of Information Technology and West Midlands organiser”). Simon notes that: “…more light has been shone on the TalkSport radio incident I described a few days ago. A further email yesterday confirmed that on Thursday night/Friday morning 30th October whilst the presenter, Rod Lucas was interviewing Sir Andrew Green of Migrationwatch UK, it was announced that Nick had refused to come on the show. This is a total fabrication as Nick had already agreed to the slot and it was TalkSport who cancelled because they wanted to cover the Ross/Brand/Sachs story instead.”
In any event, there is speculation that the leak may cause a few BNP members to reconsider their commitment to the BNP, but I have my doubts. Griffin appears to have a stranglehold on the party, and past history suggests that even where party management has been found guilty of abuses of authority (most recently, in December 2007) or tactical errors, most remain loyal. Further, the BNP has seemingly cornered the market in neo-fascism, meaning there’s little real competition for ‘nationalist’ sentiment (and finance) — apart from, perhaps, the UKIP, or ‘extremist’ elements among the Tories — so an alienated segment of the Great British Public has few, if any, alternatives.
The man who taught Slim to be a pimp explained the hate equation that drives the relationship between a pimp and his whores:
“Slim, a pimp is really a whore who has reversed the game on whores…so be as sweet as the scratch, no sweeter, and always stick a whore for a bundle before you sex her. A whore ain’t nothing but a trick to a pimp. Don’t let ‘em ‘Georgia’ you. Always get your money in front just like a whore.”
On the other hand, maybe “It’s Time” for a new/old fuehrer?
Oh yeah, speaking of the devil…

Visa fight over fascist visit
November 16, 2008
DENYING a visa to British fascist leader Nick Griffin, who has a conviction for inciting racial hatred, will only increase the likelihood of Cronulla-style racial conflict, his supporters say… Darrin Hodges, the NSW head of the extreme Australian Protection [sic] Party, which is backing his visit, said: “Having a full and frank debate was more helpful than not … and suppressing the debate leads to events like Cronulla.” He said Mr Griffin would speak at private forums in Sydney and Melbourne.
One: there was no “suppression of debate” prior to what, at the time, Darrin championed as being a White Civil Uprising. On the contrary, there was a massive campaign to whip up racist and xenophobic hysteria in the days and weeks leading up to the so-called ‘Uprising’; a fact noted even by NSW police in their investigation into the ‘riot’ and subsequent ‘retaliatory’ crimes. As The Fat Little Parrot otherwise known as millionaire shock-jock Alan Jones squawked at the time: “I’m the person that’s led this charge”.
Two: the Cronulla ‘riot’ was greeted with unabashed glee not only by Darrin, but others right across the white supremacist spectrum. According to Darrin:
“Friends, today was an historic day, the day Australians stood up against state-imposed multiculturalism,” he wrote on the night of the Cronulla riots [on the world’s premiere white supremacist forum Stormfront]. Accompanying his posting is a series of photographs he took at Cronulla that day, including one of a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “wog free zone” and another of a sign offering free sausages to the crowd, with “no tabouli”. [Darrin] also speaks of footage he filmed on the day which Henderson-Hau [FightDemBack!] believes was used in a video released over the weekend that glorifies a mob of rioters bashing various non-whites at Cronulla.
Meaning Darrin is, as usual, being a lying wanker.
