BNP Membership List Online.

with 14 comments

[This post was sticky, as I have enjoy the whole BNP debacle but back to the regular format.]

Are you worried about fascists living near you?

Solution: see HP comment on The Entire BNP Membership List Has Been Posted Online

What a laugh, I am almost crying with pleasure.

Update: HP have removed the link but putting “bnpmemberslist” into google will take you there.

Update 2: the blog has been removed but a .co.uk exists. Enjoy and check out the google map of membership coverage.

Update 3:
I shall post a lot more on this, shortly, but in the mean time enjoy tim worstall.

Update 4: Duncan’s good as ever, and the AVPS discussion.

[and I finally remembered to include Duncan on my blogroll, he’s a laugh]

Update 5: Lancaster UAF have marvellous coverage, I liked this telling quote:

“The BNP is there, it’s got history and as we all knew but didn’t care to admit it has now officially revealed as having a frighteningly huge membership totalling thousands across the UK.”

Also, see Kirkless Unity, part way down the left hand side of the screen you’ll see Ex-Lincs BNP Organiser, and Bodyguard to Nick Griffin, Mick Holmes, see what he has tattooed on his chest.

Update 6:
LOLGriffin is funny and the BNP/Downfall video clip hilarious. Some sensible and questioning comments at Dave’s.

The Times said:

Many members have a fascination with mystical ideas of England, giving their own homes or email addresses names associated with paganism, Viking and Saxon history. One couple call their farmhouse New Dawn. Another member gives himself the email name “Iceni”.

There are 16 serving and more than 50 former soldiers, along with a score of ex-police officers and a sizeable crop of driving instructors. The list also includes civil servants and estate agents. One is a witch. Another is a vicar.

There is a lecturer in human rights and data protection and a “lapsed Mensa member”.

The BNP’s purported database includes personal notes on members who have skills which might prove useful. “Public speaker … HGV licence … musician” are recorded. Language skills are outlined. “

And see Norfolk Unity.

Update 7: Shiraz Socialist strikes the right note on the leak, less hand-wringing across the web and enjoy the fascist’s discomfort:

“I would not endorse or encourage acts of physical violence against anyone on the BNP members’ list. But frankly if the publication of this list results in these sickos being driven out of politics completely then that would leave me unequivocally delighted. They are a poisonous presence on deprived estates across the nation, and they are a malignant parasite upon politics in the working class. I have none of the middle class, beltway liberal concerns about their destruction that have been written over the past few days, and neither should anyone else.”

Update 8: Richard Bartholomew discusses the religious implications of BNP membership and men of the cloth in Those Three Reverends on the BNP List.

Update 9: Edmund Standing shows that the BNP are complaining again. Edmund points us to a list containing some of the criminal convictions held by BNP leaders. Not exactly your average “political party”:

“Nick Griffin (Party Chairman) Received a two-year suspended sentence in April 1998 for inciting racial hatred. His magazine The Rune carried obscene anti-Semitic and Holocaust denial material as well as crude racism.

Tony Lecomber (Group Development Officer). In 1985 he was convicted on five counts for offences under the Explosives Act, including possession of homemade hand-grenades and electronic timing devices. Sentenced to three-years imprisonment.
In 1991 he was sentenced to another three years imprisonment for unlawful wounding for his part in an attack on a Jewish schoolteacher whom he caught trying to peel off a BNP sticker at an underground station. He has a total of 12 convictions.

Colin Smith (South East London organiser). Has amassed a total of 17 convictions for burglary, theft, stealing cars, possession of drugs and assaulting a police officer.

John Tyndall (founder of the BNP). Six convictions. In 1962 he was jailed for organising a paramilitary organisation. Four years later, he was again sent to prison for possession of a loaded gun. In 1986, he was convicted for incitement to racial hatred under the Public Order Act and sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.

Warren Bennett (Chief Steward). Supposed to keep order in the party yet has convictions for football hooliganism. In 1998, he was deported from France with over 50 other Scottish hooligans, including several BNP members.

Steve Belshaw (East Midlands BNP organiser. Was convicted in 1994 for assaulting a lawyer in his home-town of Mansfield. At the time, Belshaw combined his BNP membership with Combat 18 activity.

Kevin Scott (North East Regional Organiser). Was convicted in 1993 for hurling a glass at a black customer in a pub.

Alan Gould (Waltham Forest Organiser). Was convicted in 2000 for racially abusing people in a local pub. He told the court that it was the drink getting the better of him.

Robert Bennett. A leading activist in Oldham BNP during the 2002 elections campaign, Bennett has served five years in prison for the gang rape of a woman. He has also served seven years for armed robbery and has over 30 convictions in total.

Mick Treacy. The Oldham organiser has five convictions for violence, theft, and handling stolen goods

Darren Dobson. Found guilty of racially aggravated assault at Oldham magistrates in November 2001. Fined £300. Connected to football hooligans in the Oldham area, and has links to the nazi terror group Combat 18

Darren Hoy. April 2002, the BNP supporter was sent to prison for 3 months for racially abusing people as they left an anti-fascist rally in Oldham.”

Update 10:
Breakdown of the occupations sample (584) from BNP membership list. (H/T: Excuse Me Whilst I Step Outside ):

Sample breakdown of BNP membership list

Update 11: Nick Lowles makes the point that the BNP has no shame: “First he announces that the BNP will use the European Human Rights legislation (which he has said that the BNP would scrap) to defend themselves, now it appears that he is willing to use the Race Relations Act.”

Update 12:
Want to number crunch the BNP membership list ? Wikileaks has the list in various formats, including CSV, so you could theoretically import it into a spreadsheet and play around with it.

It seems that some BNP members like Britain so much they moved abroad and the list has about 128 individuals in places such as Saudi Arabia, Ireland, Spain and the Ukraine.

Update 13: Some belated liberal hand-wringing, Alan Thomson faces an uphill struggle at Liberal Conspiracy. As an antidote to that nonsense try Kirklees Unity and their post about the 3 Million Lotto loser on bnp list. They are on form.

Update 14: The Daily Mash reveals “A SECRET list of BNP members has revealed the party includes people from a range of professions, not just the police.”.

Update 15:
Paul Stott remembers one-time anarchist and Hunt Saboteur, Sadie Graham, until recently a leading BNP member, “Well, Sadie has certainly come along way since those days of sweaty Anarchists staggering around punk gigs at the Acton Arms in Hackney, then rushing off for the last train back to Brighton!”

Update 16:
Edmund kept track of the Far Right’s going on, best visit him weekly.

  1. Almost as funny as Jews becoming a minority in Israel as Muslim numbers grow. Suppose we publish a list of Jewish names and addresses and present it to every wacko extremist Muslim group? See if you cry with pleasure then.

  2. So that means that being Jews=belonging to a British fascist group? How does that work, Jack?

  3. Hi, Mod.
    In Spain the trial against the Franco dictatorship has died.
    Baltazar Garzón has closed the case.

  11. […] Modernity Blog: More on the BNP […]

  12. You still laughing now the BNP have 2 (TWO) seats? Oh, regarding your breach of MY HUMAN RIGHTS, IN MY (Democratic?) COUNTRY. Posting my details on your “Blog” contravened my HUMAN RIGHTS. I think Article 8: Right to Respect for Private and Family Life should do the trick. This is the Human Rights act, you people approve of. The very one that has given the Muslim Extremist (suspects) the right to go on and do as they please in this country. Tell me this. Is there another party trying to preserve our rights? Can 3 million British people go to China and dictate to them what we want? Don’t think so. You ask yourself why people vote for parties like the BNP? Look what the other parties represent! That said, you may wonder where I stand. I’m a (lucky to be) working w$&^e man. 10 O-levels, 5 NVQ’s and a HND. BNP supporters are usually associated with knuckle dragging skinheads. The fact my hair is cropped short is not due to the fact I’m a skinhead, more along the lines of my age. I have looked at all your links and read what you have to say about Britain and the BNP. I do NOT agree. As the uncivilised bunch we are, strikes me as funny that the protesters in the UK, be it Muslims against our BRAVE SOLDIERS or the UAF, have more rights and support than our CHOSEN AND ELECTED MEP’s.
    Biased? Totalitarian? Racist? Bigots? Bully’s? Irrational? Dictators? Unfair? Uneven? Self appointed? Over opinionated? Call it what you will, the BRITISH people and society will prevail. That’s MY promise to you…..

    Britain for the British.

    I have allowed the above comment to be posted to show the mindless guff that BNP supporters and their mates think.

    Any other stuff will be marked as spam. This is a no platform blog.
