Bangor and Belfast lead the way

1. Bangor and Belfast with 7
2. Carrickfergus with 3
3. Newtownards with 2
4. Ballycarry, Omagh, Ballyclare, Holywood, Randalstown, Glengormley, Ahoghill, Comber, Dungannon, Newtownabbey, Newry, Armagh, Donaghadee, Larne, Lisburn, Portadown , Fintona, Portrush, Lurgan, Portstewart and Coleraine all with 1.

So what’s the list? It is the number of members the BNP have in those areas according to their full leaked membership doing the rounds (names, addresses, phonenumbers, in some cases jobs etc). I won’t link the actual doc unless/until Mick gives the nod (so don’t do it in the comments) but in the meantime feel free to read their members absolutely crapping themselves.

I counted a total of 39 members in the north of Ireland.

  • Ri Na Deise

    Name the fuckers. Doubt they’ll know anyway. I doubt they can read tbh.

  • Mark McGregor

    No names will be allowed on this thread. End of. I doubt Mick will permit me to link to the full list but am waiting a response.

  • pól

    Apparently two Scottish PL footballers are on the list. At least one of whom plays for that famously anti-racist team in Glasgow…

  • Sneakers O’Toole

    The posts on that blog have made my day.

    Watch ’em squirm haha.

  • Mark McGregor

    pól,

    mmmm……..public figures does seem like another issue. I’ll get a call from Mick on this. Don’t want to stifle legitimate discussion but at the same time this is Mick’s site and as this has the potential to get messy he needs to make the decision.

  • Comrade Stalin

    The posts on that blog are hilarious.

    However, I wonder what the reaction would be if Sinn Fein or eirigi membership lists were posted up in public.

  • Sneakers O’Toole

    Surprised that hasn’t happened already Stalin. Those names and addresses have went walkabout a million times.

  • jone

    Oddly enough there’s a member in Dublin and a member in Galway.

    And another who gives his address as Palace Barracks. Surely that can’t be right?

    If you find the list (and to be fair it won’t take long) search by Belfast or county names to find our local Aryan master race. None in Fermanagh though.

  • Ri Na Deise

    If one was to try googling the list perhaps? Any pointers?

  • McGrath

    The list isn’t that hard to find online, apparently here is a gold badge membership. Wonder what that means.

    Predictably the names listed with an NI address don’t strike me as SF or SDLP voters. Are RC’s in the hate category for the BNP, or is that an NI membership feature?

  • pól

    Mark, how did you count the members in the North? Did you do a search for the BT postcode?

    It’s very interesting coming across all the professions listed. The number of police and teachers on the list is shocking. I’d say a few people will be being called into HR meetings in the next few days, as I’m sure there are already squads of “reds” emailing the various forces and schools involved.

    I especially enjoy the witch, who the BNP describe as a “potential embarrassment if active”.

    Just to say – if anyone is interested in checking for bigots in their area, there is a [b]torrent[/b] of information available on the web….

  • PeaceandJustice

    It’s strange that people might risk losing their jobs due to membership of a legal political party (and I’m not a supporter of the BNP). If it was an illegal group it would be different. Meanwhile, people in the Sinn Fein PIRA gang who were involved in murder, torture and ethnic cleansing are given places in Government. Even just a few years ago we had convicted terrorist Minister Murphy justifying the murder of people at a party conference. Now, I don’t recall any of the Unions during the Sinn Fein PIRA terrorist campaign saying that people who were members of that party should lose their job.

    I think there is a lesson to be learned in this for all the people listed. I think they are gonna wake up tomorrow and feel what it is like being in an oppressed minority.

    The link is everywhere online, and the first thing people are doing is ctrl+f’ing their own postcode.

  • Comrade Stalin

    aww PeaceandJustice, change the record for chrissake.

    FWIW, the BNP is a legal organization, they have a right to state their case, and anyone who fires someone for being a BNP member should be sued for discrimination. I can’t stand the Nazis, but at this point, they have done nothing illegal.

  • Oilifear

    Is is just me or is there a disproportionately large number of people on that list that work in the “security” industry?

  • Ann

    The guy from Carrickfergus has his mobile number published as well – he is a ripe old age of 21!

    Some of the members are in the US, and lots of e mail addresses with the list too. 🙂

  • Ann

    Oh, the ironing!

    lol Pol. That typo has cheered me up!

  • Big Maggie

    Yes, they’re a legal political party. Some of them never stop reminding us of that. Yet when the membership list is published they go bananas. Doesn’t quite compute does it?

  • Intelligence Insider

    Mark, what on earth made you join the BNP? I thought you were a republican? I also find it hard to believe Mr G. Brown of 10 Downing Street, London is actually a member. Do you think it might actually be a load of absolute bollocks put about by lefties?

  • PeaceandJustice

    Big Maggie – “Yes, they’re a legal political party .. Yet when the membership list is published they go bananas. Doesn’t quite compute does it?”

    So would Sinn Fein PIRA mind if its membership list was published – given that the ‘Sinn Fein’ bit is supposed to be legal?

  • Big Maggie

    This is probably my favourite of the outraged comments from BNP members (telling too):

    While some people clearly do not mind who knows about them, I don’t fancy being a screw at some prison where some coon or reds can get worked up to have a go at some one.

    Or, particularly in Yorkshire, I would not want the name of my pub to fall into the hands of the red cowards who of late have been attacking pubs late at night.

    So just because you’re some gobshite who the whole world knows about, grow up and spare a thought for those of us who have a lot to lose by this act of terrorism.

    There’s a whole demimonde out there that I didn’t know about.

  • Ri Na Deise

    Found it. Damn its long though. Too lazy to look through all that.:-)

  • Ten thousand people apparently. Am I the only one worried by that?

  • Gari,

    According to the Guardian there is nearly 13,500 (39 of them in Northern Ireland):

    http://tinyurl.com/68s9bd

  • edward

    I seen a membership for a guy in Canada using an email for a company I do a lot of business with.

    Kind of fitting he is in BRITISH Columbia lol

  • Thanks Mick. Even worse. That number makes them far bigger than any of the far left organisations, and probably bigger than them all put together. Not a good sign as we head for a period of economic crisis.

    I hope the teachers, social workers, police officers, and soldiers named will lose their jobs, although only after proper investigation to confirm this information.

  • Why should they lose their jobs Garibaldy?

    One of the reasons people find the genuine popularity of the BNP is because there is a determination by the mainstream never to talk about them. It is as though they did not exist.

    On the other hand, I would say that 39 out of 13,500 is a statistically insignificant proportion either of the BNP or of the local population.

  • Mick,

    Surely you don’t seriously think that people who are members of a racist organisation should be in the army or the police? I think they are already banned, certainly from the police anyway. The teachers and social workers may be more open to question, but the security organs of the state should not have people who do not view all citizens equally within them. I agree the numbers here are smaller than in the rest of the UK, and insignificant, though that may well be because the people who would be members are attracted to other organisations. But I meant it was the numbers in the UK as a whole that I found disturbing rather than our own patch.

  • Kaido

    Portadown with only 1 ???

    There must be some mistake – can you re-check ??

  • Alan

    How many of them were appointed on the basis that they agreed with particular aims and objectives, including anti-racist clauses, for the Councils and government organisations that they work for?

    There would seem to be good reason to review and possibly terminate their employment. It is not an issue of their holding particular views, but in their lying at some part of the appointment process. If they held ideas that were incompatable with the job as it was offered then they should not have accepted the post. Equally, if they signed up to BNP membership subsequent to their appointment, then they should have recognised the implications of this for their practice and resigned.

    Personally, I do not believe that you can operate effectively for your clients as a social worker, doctor etc if you hold racist beliefs.

  • Reader

    Alan: It is not an issue of their holding particular views, but in their lying at some part of the appointment process.
    Sure – we all know what we think about the BNP! But what are the *actual requirements* for membership? That is – would membership prove that someone could not follow a code of conduct? Or is that assumption just a different prejudice coming into play?
    After all – we have DUP and SF ministers over here. And they are meant to be able to treat us all equally.

  • Comrade Stalin

    Garibaldy,

    I’m playing devil’s advocate here a bit, but the line you are following is a little dangerous. Should republicans be banned from being in the police due to their own conflict of interest between upholding the law and attempting to bring down the state ?

  • Alan

    “Or is that assumption just a different prejudice coming into play? ”

    No, that is misunderstanding tolerance and making the assumption that intolerance is always prejudicial or a bad thing. Children in mines, slavery, male-only sufferage etc all spring to mind.

    I have judged the BNP on the basis of an understanding of the damage they have done and contimue to do in this society. You can criticise me if you wish for being active in anti-racist work since the late seventies, but please don’t accuse me of judging without thought.

    On the wider point about “actual requirements”, I won’t post to the BNP website, but I am sure that you will find enough from here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_National_Party ) to eke out a fine case for dismissal.

  • Ian

    Apparently two Scottish PL footballers are on the list. At least one of whom plays for that famously anti-racist team in Glasgow…

    Posted by pól on Nov 18, 2008 @ 09:04 PM

    Unfortunately this isn’t true. Bobo Balde will reveal all about the “anti rascist team” when his contract is up in June 09. I admire him for refusing to sign the confidentiality clause that would have hushed up the rascism he faces at the club who tried to hush up child abuse.

  • Valenciano

    The list is available in excel format and the exact number of bods on it is 12802, however this includes numerous people not renewing their membership but doesn’t include those who’ve taken advantage of family membership to include kids and spouses under the same membership so exact number of members is probably well over 12000.

    Some of the lines in there are classic though
    “Will not be renewing 07 (“Jehova God only real hope for mankind”)”
    “Activist (discretion requested) Teacher (secondary school)”
    “Discretion required re. employment concerns Police officer”
    “Resigned 17/9/07 (confused re. Party policy on ethnicity)”
    “Will not be renewing (took offence to newspaper reports about the Party)”
    “Report from —– 2/8/07: member describes himself as a witch: potential embarrassment if active”

    Best of all is the veiled threat of violence from the party spokesman in the Times “If we find out the name of the person who published this list, it will turn out to be one of the most foolish things they have done in their life. I wouldn’t want to have done that — I wouldn’t be sleeping very well tonight.”

    Bonkers!

  • An Lochlannach

    Surprised that Coleraine only boasts(?) one member. When I lived there Coleraine was crawling with NF and you couldn’t go to a Coleraine FC match without having one of their grubby publications shoved in your face. Can we count this decline as progress or have they all just joined the UDA?

  • JokerN

    Whats the big deal, why the Sick glee of some posters ?, The BNP have a right to privacy, some may not like what they say but they have a right to say it.
    The irony is that civil society and institutions are full of Marxists,leftists,Orangemen,Hibernians, free masons, indeed Republicans et al. Is it any different that we have Sinn Fein and the DUP in Government here? Hardly pargons of tolerance indeed. lets post whos in what and get it over with.

    The fooly with Liberalism is that it is easily contradicted,it knows what it is against but not what its for. The BNP likewise have a right to free speech, privacy and as are fundamental rights. After all isnt that what our Liberal Society is all about? As the saying goes,’its not fascism when ‘we’ do it’. Descartes, ‘I dislike what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it”
    The far left will be rejoicing im sure and asking for the people named to lose thier jobs, If only the same disgust with the Radical left over the years was acknowledged, yet they were allowed to be embedded in society. I wonder why??? Is it only 1 group of people we need to be intolerant off ? When will the far left start attacking and intimidating BNP homes?, and they perhaps will.

    The fact that there are teachers, policemen etc on the list shows its not just knuckle dragging jingoists in the BNP, they are intelligent and coherent enough to see there is a huge problem with mass immigration and cultural incompatability,if some people refuse to believe that,it is thier right, but to condemn others when they do is tantamount to doing what they accuse the BNP of, Fascism!!.
    However its easy to condemn when one has the backing of the leading ideology.

    But on the basis of free speech and an example of Mass immigration and Islamic Fascism which the BNP is the only vocal party I might add, ”They took the passport they took the Pound, then they bombed the Underground”
    Free speech and free expression is’nt it great eh?

    I think there is a difference between nationalists who want a united Ireland and the BNP which advocates discrimination against certain proportions of the citizenry of the UK. If any party advocates unequal citizenship, its members should be banned from sensitive jobs.

    If their really are famous people in the membership (I have no idea if their are) and they are exposed, then they could suffer financially.

    As a result they could bring a civil claim for breach of the Data Protection Act and for distress if proved. Any claim could be expected to be a very significant amount. Plus their are a number of either way criminal offences for breach of the Act if proved.

    Either way is their really any way back for the BNP now when the decent honest members find out they have been publicly exposed.

    Just so long as there is no way forward, Nazi boy, that is all that ‘decent honest’ people really care about.

The Irish would have been treated like the Poles, Russians etc… Lets’s give thanks to those who stopped such an evil ideology, the Irish here who volunteered as well our neighbours in Britain, the UK, the Commonwealth forces, the USA, The Russians, and all the rest of the allies. It’s is very sad to see some British folk entertaining such ludicrous and evil racist thoughts today!

    How can the ban on policemen being members of the BNP be legal? I presume the ban doesn’t apply to other political parties. I’ve no love for the BNP, but either the ban should extend to all political parties, or if they feel that the BNP is not a fit party for a policeman to join then it is not fit for anyone to join and they should ban the party outright.

    How Black and White your analysis is (Pardon the Pun) But nearly(Whether the concept of Country even existed in those times) every country has been invaded, given away,its wealth negotiated by thier elites. Did you know the Anglo Normans were invited into Ireland, Every Anglo Irish landlords agents were Irish, Gombeens Irish, Police carrying out tennant evictions-Irish.
    Invasion and rule by other more advanced ethnic groups, militarily, socially, intelectually always happens, Its Natural Law.
    Do you think if the Irish were in the position The Anglo-Normans were in Centuries ago, Invaded England stayed there for Hundreds of years would have done anything differently and it would be all just fine ?

    Shortly after the overthrow of Mussolini ‘s Fascist regime in Italy a wave of factory occupations swept the country . In one small Milanese factory the workers told the manager who was a well known Mussolini supporter that they would refuse him entry to the factory unless he stood for a whole day in the town square with a placard round his neck saying ‘I was a Fascist’

    He agreed . When he returned to the workshop next day his ribs were black and blue .

    ‘What happened ask?’ asked one of the workers .

    ‘Were you beaten up ‘?

    ‘No,’ said the manager.’Its just that people kept on sidling up to me , digging me in the ribs and saying ‘I was one too ‘ .

    So what puzzles me is this Mr Mark McGregor. You count 39 in the North of Ireland (this fictional place). As you obviously are either bad at geography or in a deluded united ireland state of mind why would you not mention the BNP members in Dublin and Galway? i.e west and south of Ireland?

  • Valenciano

    Mark’s total incidentally is wrong – a quick sort of the excel file by postcode shows 41 members based in NI. Interestingly the BBC also incorrectly states that there are 39 people on the NI list. I wonder where they lifted that info from 😉

  • Valenciano

    “I mean the BNP are a nasty fascist little party, but publishing names, addresses and phone-numbers is a nasty facist little tactic, which only makes the person who has done this as much a fascist as the BNP themselves.”

    Well most fingers are being pointed at former BNP members, so very likely you’re correct on that score.

  • The BNP’s Redwatch is rightly condemned by the left, yet when the self same tactic is employed against the right it seems it is three cheers all round.

    There is a disturbing element within the politics of the left that appears to have difficulty in understanding that human rights are universal and must always be defended; this extends even to those in society seeking to promote the most obnoxious views.

    As to the predictable posts suggesting that fascistic leanings do not feature in Irish republicanism it is worth remembering that Ireland’s anti-fascist record is not without blemish. Ireland is unique in having produced more volunteers to fight for Franco during the Spanish Civil War than fought against him.

    It actually concerns me that you are linking to a Nationalist blogsite and wonder if this is the best thing to do. thay may be ‘crapping themselves’ but is it wise to link to a site that has actually given a full name and address of one of its members.

  • The BBC, presumably lifting a comment straight off this site, say that there are 2 BNP members in the ‘south’ (aka the 26, liberated, counties 😉 ):

    Two people in the Republic of Ireland were also on the list.

    I counted four, however. One each from Dublin, Galway, Kerry and Sligo.

    That means that the south has about 10% of the number of the north, and its not even in the UK! Wierd. I guess the people are ex-pat Brits, like some in the north too.

    The BBC do give a warning that they have no responsibility for content on links to external websites.

    Maybe a wee disclaimer that they can’t stand over material lifted from blogs they make no effort to verify, don’t admit to having pinched and then dropping their news pieces, would be in order?

    Muppets.

    (this it great, it lets me off the hook for getting my numbers wrong in the first place)

    Sandy Baxter, a former plod who lives in Portstewart is happy enough!

    “I’m in a party I firmly believe in and why should I not hold my head high like anyone else,” he said.

    This Mornings Irish News Story Claims that ‘Strict Guidlines governing the Police mean no member of the PSNI-officer of Civilian-may be a member of the Party'(BNP)
    Given the fact that the PSNI lists officers from the LOL, black preceptory and Free Masons, God knows what the Masons do?, the LOL et all surely some could be described as at least Bigoted-Sectarian and Racist? Thus undermining public confidence.
    Or are local Dubios groups in service to the state excempt from such repugnant indignation and ridicule? Either include all or expel all.
    Its the feckin Hypocrisy that gets to me the most.

    Hmmmm. If only it were that simple.
    There are two NHS doctors on trial for trying to blow up Glasgow airport at the minute. Now they may be acquitted, but at least one has said in evidence that he supports the Iraqi struggle against the west. I don’t want to get into the merits of that conflict, but if we’d told him there would have to be a vetting before he was appointed – just in case he veered over the limit of respectable opposition-I somehow doubt that you’d be knocked down in the rush to support the policy.

    That said, I don’t see why all parties shouldn’t be made to publish membership. If you believe in something enough to join a party, what’s to be ashamed of? Yep, their squirming is funny, but these people have the right to equal treatment, no matter how odious their views, and some of the sanctimonious posturing of Shinner types on this thread might be less blatasnt if we could see their own bona (properly mala) mides

    I recall some 20 years ago that there was a great furore over ‘political vetting’. This was almost universally regarded as a bad thing as community groups and projects were denied government funding on the grounds that someone associated with the project or group in question was also a member of a suspect organisation or party. Has political vetting suddenly become respectable?

    A few did but less than the number of Dutch people.
