Watchdog wants BNP to be denied right to teach

Members of the British National Party (BNP) working in universities should not be allowed direct contact with students, the higher education equality watchdog has said.

Several higher education staff were among BNP members whose details were recently leaked on the internet.

Nicola Dandridge, chief executive of the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU), said this week that while "primacy of freedom of speech is fundamental", universities had legal obligations to promote good race relations on campus. "It is hard to see how institutions can reconcile their duty to promote good race relations with staff being members of the BNP. Institutions may therefore consider that it is inappropriate for BNP members to have teaching and/or pastoral care responsibilities, or other direct contact with students," she said.

Academics named as members of the far-Right party included Arthur Nightingale, head experimental design engineer at the University of Cambridge's Centre for Industrial Photonics. The university said staff political affiliations were "a matter for them" as long as they did not affect the workplace, so no action would be taken.

Strathclyde University, whose estates manager William MacLachlan appeared on the list, said that political beliefs were "a personal matter" but it would consider its position if "such beliefs should impinge on a staff member's professional activity".

Dennis Hayes, founder of Academics for Academic Freedom and head of the Centre for Professional Learning at Canterbury Christ Church University, said the ECU recommendation was "an improper restriction of a democratic right ... and a new stage in the attack on academic freedom. These people have not said or done anything - they are being punished for existing."

Dr Hayes said discrimination should be tackled as it occurred.

Les Ebdon, vice-chancellor of the University of Bedfordshire, said: "It's the views rather than the party membership that's crucial. If somebody espouses openly racist views it's difficult to see how they can be in a lecturing position in a university where they may have students from a whole variety of ethnic groups."

The Green Bigot Chronicles - BNP paedo scandal rocks Nantyglo Nazi

Actually, the Jolly Green Bigot isn't big enough to take the bad news on the chin. The Nantyglo Nazi - who went crying to Uncle Nick to have his address changed to a PO box number after we published this cowardly rascist creep's home address - can only babble on about paedophiles in the Tory party.

The BNP's most useless lump also got his nickers in a twist over the arrest of four BNP members, who were questioned about the distribution of disgusting anti-Muslim leaflets in Lancashire. Blaming Muslims for the heroin trade, the leaflets also featured pictures of the corpse of drug addict Rachel Whitear, originally authorised for use in legitimate anti-drug campaigns by her family, who were shocked when told that the BNP was using them as part of their racist campaign.

One of those arrested was Blackburn BNP organiser Robin Evans, who instantly became a hero to the Bigot - extoller of family values and purveyor of "British" values.

Unfortunately for the Bigot, his hero Evans has got form - and then some!

Family values: on his way to winning a council by-election in Blackburn, Evans lied to voters that he was standing to give his family a future. What he didn't say was that it was a future without him in the picture, because middle-aged Evans had been having an affair with then 21 year old BNP activist Julie Russell.

Evans warned wife Gwen about going to the newspapers when she uncovered the affair: "He said there would be repercussions if I did," she said, "and the party would take steps to 'counter-act' such moves. It was a clear threat and I knew he meant it."

Evans soon ditched his wife and 10 year old son for the charms of Julie Russell.

As for "British" values, Gwen Evans said: "He had some Asian friends before but now he wishes them dead."

Perhaps that's because, like so many in the British National Party, all along Robin was a secret

Yes! That's right.

Robin quit the BNP to set up his very own British National Socialist Party - but the members didn't come flocking because most Nazis know their best chance is with the BNP, and a disappointed Robin was forced to seek re-admission into the racist party, leader Nick Griffin - alleged moderniser and purported scourge of Nazis (when he's on Newsnight) - obliging the adulterous Hitlerite.

So there we are. A short history of Robin Evans, Blackburn BNP organiser, that you WON'T be seeing anytime soon on the blog of hypocrite, racist and rank coward Paul Morris - aka the Green Bigot.

Evil paedos are secret BNP thugs

Perverts: the BNP's Andrew Wells and Ian Hindle
Two abused 14 year olds after getting them drunk

Two paedophiles jailed for sex attacks on schoolgirls last week are named on the leaked list of British National Party members, we can reveal. Perverts Ian Richard Hindle, 32, and Andrew Paul Wells, 49, plied two 14-year-olds with alcohol before subjecting them to sickening abuse.

Both men appear on a 12,000 strong BNP membership roll, alongside police officers, soldiers, doctors, prison officers—and even vicars. The sex beasts’ membership will bring further shame to the far-right party.

BNP leader Nick Griffin had claimed the number of people with respectable jobs on the list contradicted the view that the average member “was a skinhead oik”. But Gerry Gable, spokeman for anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, said: “The fact that these two sex offenders are on the list shows the sort of vile characters which gravitate towards the fascist group.”

A court heard last week that twisted Hindle took advantage of one of the girls by having sex with her. Wells took snaps on his mobile of himself sexually assaulting the other teenager. The vile pair were caught when the horrifying images later came to the attention of the girl’s mother, who called police.

The men, of Blackburn, Lancs, carried out their depraved acts after getting the girls drunk at Wells’s flat. Hindle admitted unlawful sex with a child and was jailed for three years. Wells, who admitted two charges of engaging in sexual activity with a child and one of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child, got two years and three months.

The horrendous abuse did not even stop when one of the drunk girls became ill, Preston Crown Court heard. When she staggered to the toilet, Wells followed her in and exposed himself to her.

Detective Constable Lee Eckersley said: “It is a prime example of men exploiting the vulnerability of a young girl for their own selfish needs.”

Their sentences came as the Metropolitan Police in London suspended four employees who were on the BNP list leaked on the internet. They are a PC, a special constable, a police community support officer and a civilian staff member. Cops and civilian police staff are banned from BNP membership.

Dozens of Norfolk people on BNP list

Hundreds of people from Norfolk were named as members of the far-right British National Party (BNP) in a list posted on the internet yesterday.

The list, which includes names, addresses, phone numbers, details of the jobs and in some cases the hobbies and qualifications of about 12,000 members, includes a Norwich pub landlord and 219 others from Norfolk.

Nationwide, serving and former police officers, teachers and soldiers are listed as members of the BNP in the leaked document.

While there is no ban on many of those professions joining the BNP, its policies are seen by many as incompatible with frontline public service.

A radio DJ and a police officer were the first alleged members of the BNP to face action from their employers today after the entire membership list of the party was posted on the internet.

DJ Rod Lucas was axed by TalkSport and a policeman in Merseyside was being investigated after they were 'outed' as having signed up to the far-Right organisation.

Most of those on the list the Evening News spoke to did not want to be named in the paper, and some BNP members nationwide have used internet chat rooms to express their fear of repercussions.

But pub landlord John Pugh, 63, who has been in charge at the William IV pub in Quebec Road, Norwich for two and a half years, wanted to be named.

He said: “I've got no problem with being named on the internet or in the paper. I'm damn proud to be a member of the party and I'm proud to be British.

“I'm an ex-serviceman and I fought with the British forces for 10 years, and now I'm still fighting for Britain.

“I joined the party because I don't have any confidence in the status quo of British politics. I don't believe the three main parties have the interests of the average British person at heart.

“I'm not a racist or a bigot. If I hurt people's feelings, sorry, it's tough. I don't preach to people who don't want to listen to me, but I'm entitled to my opinion as is everyone else.”

One of those listed from Norwich, who did not wish to be named, said: “I'm not bothered about the names being listed, because in my case people know who I am and know I'm a member.”

He said he had joined the BNP because he was “fed up with the state the country is in”.

“We all feel the country is in a right state and something needs to be done about it.”

Another person named from Norfolk, who did not wish to be named, added: “I joined the party because I would like a frank discussion on immigration and on us being in the European Union. We are not skinheads or thugs, but ordinary people, who feel their views are not being listened to.”

The BNP has demanded a police investigation and said in a statement posted on its website that the list was “essentially genuine”.

BNP leader Nick Griffin said: “We'll be asking the police to investigate. It's a list which is now just over a year old.

“Having spent a lot of money to secure our members' privacy we are disappointed it's been breached.”

In his statement on the BNP website, Mr Griffin described the publication as “a disgraceful act of treachery” by former BNP staff members who had subsequently been sacked.

He said that he had lodged a complaint with Dyfed-Powys police on the grounds that the publication breached human rights and data protection laws.

The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) last night confirmed that serving police officers were not allowed to be members of the BNP.

The anti-immigration party has won council seats in recent years, and took a London Assembly seat in May.

Humiliation for Griffin as BNP membership list turns up on the Internet

Embarrassed BNP admits its members list has been published online

There was panic at the centre of the British National Party tonight after it emerged that its entire membership list had been published on the internet.

The names, addresses and telephone numbers of more than 10,000 current and former members were published on a specially created web page.

Along with the names and personal details, the professions of many of the members have been made public including teachers, scientists, a government employee and at least one serving police officer.

One police woman on the list, whose entry included a note asking for discretion, faces potential dismissal since officers are proscribed from joining the right-wing political party.

The Association of Chief Police Officers ruled four years ago that officers would be investigated and face losing their posts if they joined bodies which conflicted with the force's duty to promote race equality.

Simon Darby, the BNP's spokesman, claimed that a disgruntled former member of the party was most likely to be behind the leak. The party succeeded in winning a High Court injunction against a former member preventing them from publishing the material in April.

Mr Darby warned that whoever had published it had made a serious mistake. “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,” he said.

“I wouldn’t want to have done that – I wouldn’t be sleeping very well tonight. We are worried because children’s names are on the list.

“No true nationalist would have put the lives and livelihoods of fellow nationalists at risk.”

Mr Darby said the BNP had contacted the owner of the website which has been hosting the list since Sunday demanding that they take the personal information down, although he conceded: "Once it's out, it's out."

A similar leak of BNP members occurred last year exposing Simone Clarke, a prominent ballerina, as a member of the party. Her details including home address and private e-mail address were published in the latest leak.

Rank and file party members were also distressed tonight fearing that their details were now also in the public domain.

The forums of far-right blogs and websites were humming with concerned and furious users. One anonymous poster wrote: “I could lose my job. I'm bloody angry.”

Another on the NorthWestNationalists blog blamed Nick Griffin, the party leader, for the security violation: “If Griffin cannot keep the memberships secure he should resign.”

Amongst teachers and prison officers who specifically asked for discretion on the published list were a host of far more unusual professionals including people described as Christian lay preachers, retired historians, driving instructors and psychic healers.

The Times

A rare glimpse into true nature of the party’s bedrock support

The panic began just before bedtime when a member of the British National Party surfing the internet noticed that its entire personal details had appeared online. “Jesus H. Christ!” the far-right supporter wrote to the message board of a sympathetic blog at 23.19 on Monday. “Its true, I’ve just seen my details. Who in the BNP has done this?”

By last night, the web was buzzing with nervous nationalists and gleeful anti-fascists exchanging taunts about the extraordinary breach of security.

The membership list provides a rare glimpse into the true nature of the bedrock support for the BNP, which believes it is on the brink of winning its first seat in next year’s elections for the European Parliament.

Many members have a fascination with mystical ideas of England, giving their own homes or e-mail addresses names associated with paganism, and Viking and Saxon history.

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. Names include civil servants, estate agents and a knight. One is a witch. Another is a vicar. There is a lecturer in human rights and data protection and a former member of Mensa.

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

Some of the contact information is inaccurate, by error or design. Possibly codes have been used. The mobile number for an English scientist said to require discretion because of his job was answered yesterday by a Glas-wegian who let out a torrent of abuse.

However, The Timeswas able to use the list yesterday to contact numerous BNP members who have kept their identities secret until now. Their e-mail addresses, mobile and home telephone numbers were correct.

Hobbies, also meticulously listed for some members, include birdwatching, steam railways and line dancing. Many children’s details are included because the party offers family membership for £40 a year. The address and home telephone number of Nick Griffin, the party leader, are disclosed.

Some have lost patience with awaiting a new nationalist dawn for Britain and have left the country. There are addresses from the US, Saudi Arabia and the Irish Republic.

In spite of its growing electoral success, support for – let alone membership of – the BNP remains taboo. The Association of Chief Police Officers says that membership is incompatible with being a police officer.

Mr Griffin pointed out that, after a smaller leak two years ago when an investigative journalist joined the party, nobody was sacked for memership.

Harry Baxter, 90, a former army major from Surrey, was furious at being identified and said he would be contacting his solicitor. “You can rub me off and count me out,” he told The Times. “I do not have anything to do with them [the BNP] now, but that’s beside the point. It has nothing to do with anybody. It is no one’s business. “ Fear and loathing began appearing on the blogs from early yesterday.

“Holy sh*t,” one member posted to North West Nationalists at 1.30am. “Just what the **** is going on? Did it get out over the weekend, was it stolen by reds hacked or what?”

2.01 “The most shocking thing is some of the comments by the names! God help anyone who is in the army, the [prison] service, health care, police officer or a teacher. You’re all ****ed! For some reason too, a lot of the unmarried women have their ages by their names, is this for the benefit of a certain person or persons?”

2.01 “Me [too], I’m on the list, I could be chucked out of the army. What is going on? P*ss up in a brewery comes to mind. Who controls the membership list? Clearly old Griffo doesn’t give a sh*t! I want some answers, NOW”

11.11 “You have to laugh. All those redirection points, hush hush meetings, and the BNP goes and loses the most valuable piece of information it has. Each one of those names translates into money. Who wants to renew now knowing the BNP will just give your details up to a bunch of communist loonies, who damage cars, property, throw bombs, and threaten the lives of children? Oh yes, the reds paint nasty pictures of BNP members, but amongst their ranks, particularly in Manchester, are some of the most [murderous] scum that ever walked. The membership should demand Griffin stand down over this breach. He has put thousands of members at risk, and proved unfit to lead.”

12.09 “This is a DISASTER for the BNP, both on a PR front and a security level. Heads should roll and Im afraid that the buck has to stop with the chairman. He has been good for the BNP but this is a blunder too far.

“If he wont resign or says the error was someone elses then he should sack all of those involved in the compilation and storage of members details, All of them.” 12.49 “The [recession] means many of us could lose our jobs, add this info to it and its a dead cert. I’m really upset, how could they do this?”

The Times

Thousands in fear after BNP members list leak

Soldiers, police officers, teachers and doctors were in fear for their jobs last night after the entire membership list of the far-right British National Party was posted on the internet.

More than 12,000 names, home addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail contact details were included in a major breach of data protection.

The identities and ages of school-children with family memberships were also disclosed. Some supporters were listed with comments such as “discretion required – employment concerns”. A number even had their hobbies recorded.

The BNP said that the revelation could leave its members vulnerable to violent attack. Nick Griffin, the party leader, issued a statement saying that the list was “essentially genuine”. He said that it was an old membership list that had been “slightly modified”. A number of named individuals had never been members, he added.

Speculation was growing about whether the leak came from a member angry about internal feuding or from an anti-racist infiltrator.

Simon Darby, the party’s spokesman, said that a disgruntled former member was the most likely source. The BNP won a High Court injunction against a former member in April preventing the material being used.

Mr Darby issued a thinly veiled warning that whoever was responsible had made a serious mistake. “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,” he told The Times. “I wouldn’t want to have done that – I wouldn’t be sleeping very well tonight. We are worried because children’s names are on the list. It is not information that should be in the public domain. We are always receiving death threats. No true nationalist would have put the lives and livelihoods of fellow nationalists at risk.”

Keiron Lemar, a former soldier who served in Iraq with the Somerset & Cornwall Light Infantry, was appalled to discover that even his Service number was included in the entry. He told The Times that he joined the party while a soldier, although he was aware that the British Army frowned upon BNP membership.

“I’m obviously disappointed,” he said. “I work for an energy company. I’m worried about that because in my job I go round people’s houses. I’m involved in all sorts of walks of life. I don’t know how they would look on

How Lancaster Unity broke the news

Entire BNP membership list goes online

Before reading this, you should appreciate that there are very strict limitations on what we are allowed to print and we intend to stay strictly within the law in the comments that we allow.

Having said all that, this breach of data security is startlingly bad for the BNP, not simply for the fact that the party has lost data - almost everyone seems to have managed to do that recently - but for the nature of that information.

Not only does the data, now available online, include the entire membership list with full names (and former names where there have been changes for any reason), addresses, contact numbers, email addresses and in many cases the member's age, particularly where those members are under eighteen. Yes, that's right. This list includes members as young as fourteen, male and female. Where a family membership is bought and paid for, the whole family is listed.

As if this isn't bad enough, the notes that are attached to many of the entries leave a lot of the members open to difficulties in their jobs, some of them being in the armed forces or the police and the BNP too - an illegal combination, and where not illegal, frequently frowned upon. Other members are noted as construction managers, receptionists, district nurses, lay preachers, police officers, company directors and teachers among many others.

Like this wasn't enough, the BNP has also listed hobbies or interests where for some reason they are deemed relevant. Thus we have short-wave radio hams, amateur historians, pagans, line-dancers and even a witch (male).

The contributors to nazi sites, many of whom are also members of the BNP, are suddenly in a frenzy, expecting to be outed at any moment. Here's just one comment from the North-West Nationalist blog:

'I've just had a call, I'm on it to. I want my fucking member money back, like has been mentioned here, I could lose my fucking job. I'm bloody angry.'

Not surprising really. I'd be pretty pissed off too.

Curiously, there are quite a number of BNP members abroad, presumably ex-pats or those working abroad temporarily - Australia, the USA, United Arab Emirates, Sao Paulo, Spain and the Netherlands were some that I noticed. Isn't the BNP opposed to foreign workers? I'm sure it was last time I looked.

One final thing (for the moment, because I'm sure this one will run and run): the list appears to include the December rebels. At first, I took this to mean that the membership list was a year out of date but after a good look through, it's become clear that by keeping a running list (as opposed to a clean list each membership year) the party is able to claim a much larger membership than it in fact has. Some of the additions to the list are as recent as September of this year, indicating that some of the members listed - though how many is anyone's guess - are not in fact members at all. The implication is pretty clear (to me, at least) - BNP members are being defrauded when they have been told that the membership is growing exponentially. Take off all the dead members, those who have resigned (many still listed along with their reasons for leaving) and the most recent batch of rebels and the size drops considerably.

It's been suggested that the party's former treasurer John Walker is responsible for posting the list up publicly. We wouldn't know but by doing so, the poster has stuck a stick of dynamite under Griffin's rear end. The consequences and the repercussions may be interesting to watch.

Just as a complete aside, I should point out that we do not have a copy of this list, nor do we want one. The information we had was obtained online and appears suddenly to have been removed, at least for the moment...

Facebook kicks out neo-Nazi hate groups

Facebook is a great place for hooking up people with similar interests – anything from blue cheese appreciation societies to fans of kabaddi and sumo can be found on the site.

However, from yesterday, boneheaded members of Italian neo-Nazi organisations are most definitely not welcome after Facebook management kicked out several such groups.

Hot topic

The seven online groups removed by the California SNS firm all called for violence against Italian gypsies. The ethnic grouping, also known as Roma, has recently become a hot political issue as the Italian government attempts to crack down on crime and remove gypsy townships.

A site statement explained the move, saying: "Facebook supports the free flow of information, and groups provide a forum for discussing important issues. However, Facebook will remove any groups which are violent or threatening."

More needs to be done

Nevertheless, there have been calls for Facebook to implement automatic filters to weed out hate groups, instead of relying on human intervention to manually remove inappropriate groups.

A spokesperson for the Simon Wiesenthal Center added: "It's not a new thing - it's happened before, it's even happened before on Facebook. We are not surprised this group of really marginal Italian neo-Nazis have taken advantage of it."

BNP's shock victory in council election sparks fears of surge in votes across Britain

The British National Party has scored a surprise victory in a council by-election.

The far-Right party took a seat in the Lincolnshire market town of Boston, where migrants make up a quarter of the population. Anti-racism campaigners warned that the win would lead to scaremongering about foreigners and an increase in violence and threats.

It is the first district council seat in Lincolnshire, for the British National Party. BNP candidate David Owens polled 279 votes - a 138-majority over the ruling Boston Bypass Independent candidate. The Tories came third.

In his victory speech, Mr Owens said local media organisations had tried to "hoodwink" the public into thinking the "BNP was a racist party". He said: "We are not a racist party - we are passionate about our country. I think the people of Fenside and the people of Boston have said tonight that immigration is at capacity here."

But Tory MP Mark Simmonds, who represents Boston and Skegness, said: "The BNP are a threat to our country, who contribute nothing to society. This must be a wake up call to all parties to ensure that they campaign hard and represent people effectively and leave no room for people to feel disaffected and turn to the BNP."

Labour MP Jon Cruddas, who has campaigned furiously against the BNP in his own London constituency, said: "It is always a worry when the BNP wins because with it comes escalating tensions and scaremongering and fears in the community. People have got to realise that the consequences of them giving support to the BNP at the ballot box is an increase in threats and violence."

He said it was vital that political parties tackled the underlying reasons behind the rise of the BNP - concerns about housing, jobs and public services being taken by migrants.

The town has a huge numbers of migrants, especially from Portugal and Poland, who take low-paid work on farms picking flowers, fruit and vegetables and in food processing plants. Critics have accused the Government of failing to prepare cash-strapped councils for the influx of immigrants by giving them the resources to invest in public services.

This has left schools, health facilities and transport struggling to cope with greater numbers. Earlier this year, Communities Secretary Hazel Blears admitted that 25 per cent of people in Boston, which has a population of 70,000, were migrants.

She confessed the "scale and pace of change" had been so dramatic that there are now 65 languages spoken in the market town. In the 2001 census 96 per cent of Boston residents were white British while only 1.1 percent regarded themselves as "white other" which would include eastern Europeans.

In June, Ms Blears announced plans to send a specialist "tension-busting" team of Whitehall officials into Breckland, Norfolk, where the influx of migrants has caused "friction". The area saw racial problems when Portugal knocked England out of Euro 2004 and a mob in the local town of Thetford attacked the Red Lion pub, popular with Portuguese nationals, throwing rocks and bottles and setting fire to cars.

Last month, the head of the race relations watchdog warned that Britain risked a surge in far-right extremism unless it took urgent action to target training and skills at people stuck in a new white "underclass".

Trevor Phillips, chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said the Government urgently needed to takes active steps to help those hit hardest by the economic crisis - including the white working class.

Join the demo against the BNP Conference at Blackpool on Saturday November 15th

Once again, it has become clear that the fascist BNP is holding its annual conference in Blackpool. This year's conference has a special edge to it though because the party's leader Nick Griffin is using the event to springboard his NW England campaign for a seat on the European Parliament - the elections for which take place next June. Griffin has been yearning for a place in Europe for years - desperate to get his sticky mitts on the vast expenses that can be run up by the greedier and more unscrupulous Euro MP.

Should he win a place, we could see the income of the BNP improve dramatically, to the detriment of everyone who opposes it. Richard Barnbrook tithes 10% (£5,000) from his income as a London Assembly member and Griffin would be expected to do the same. This amount can buy an awful lot of lying leaflets and/or petrol for the infamous Lie Lorry. Once inside Europe, Griffin's BNP would also strengthen its links with the many other far-right groups that are represented at Brussels, some of which are a good deal more overtly to the right of the BNP.

We have a good deal of work to do to keep Griffin or any of his acolytes out of Europe, and he knows there is a real possibility of winning a seat this time. With Euro-scepticism rife and the right-wing press slagging off the EU on any pretext, the mood is in his favour. But we'll fight him and we'll keep him out - and Blackpool is the very first stage of this fight. While he announces his campaign, we'll be there to show him and Blackpool BNP that there is massive opposition that is prepared to stand up and be counted.

A triple demo then - opposition to the BNP conference, opposition to the BNP in Blackpool and a big two-fingers to Griffin's opening shot in his campaign for a seat on the European Parliament.

Time: 12 noon

Date: Saturday November 15th

Location: the square at the top of Victoria Street at the side entrance to the Winter Gardens. A map that clearly shows the location is at the top of this post.

Directions: If you're coming from the prom, aim for Blackpool Tower and Victoria Street is just a few metres to the North of it. Victoria Street is pedestrianised so walk to the other end of it and you'll find us in the big square next to the Winter Gardens. For drivers, the best way is to park up in the Hounds Hill shopping centre multi-storey car park, go out through the shopping centre and you're in Victoria Street. Turn right and the demo is a fifty metre stroll.

Dress up warm. It's chilly in Blackpool in November.

Top Euro Nazi’s hate site run from terraced house ... in Gravesend

A top Euro neo-Nazi leader has secretly set up home in Britain, The Sun can reveal. Hungarian Zoltan Fuzessy, 35 (above, with BNP leader Nick Griffin), uses his terraced house in Gravesend, Kent, as an HQ to promote his far-right movement.

Fuzessy is vice-president of the Jobbik party, whose members freely boast of their hatred towards Jews and make sick jokes about the Holocaust. The party, called “the shame of Hungary” by the country’s PM, has paramilitaries who dress in black uniforms like Hitler’s SS and has close ties to the British National Party.

Dad-of-two Fuzessy runs a website promoting Jobbik from his modest family home. The site, on which he is described as “head of international relations”, carries streams of bile-filled postings by members including a host of anti-Semitic attacks.

One comment, denying the Holocaust happened, read: “Gassing? Appears to have been delousing.” Another said Jews were “full of lies” about the atrocities committed by Nazis and had “miscalculated” the reaction they would get. A third sick comment bragged about giving Asian immigrants “a whack around the head” and then asking them if they felt like staying in Britain.

When The Sun confronted Fuzessy at his house he claimed he was not racist, saying: “My party is radical but it is patriotic, not nationalist. Millions in Hungary support us. Those who call us Nazi are just Communists.”

Fuzessy, who insisted he was not claiming benefits, refused to say when he had moved to Britain or what motivated him to come.

Minutes later the sick racist comments were removed from the website.

But The Sun can reveal Fuzessy has held meetings with UK-based extremist leaders, including BNP chairman Nick Griffin, who was the star speaker at a Jobbik rally in front of 5,000 supporters in Budapest last month.

Last night Gravesend’s Tory MP Adam Holloway said: “Any website which is anti-Semitic or racist in tone or content should be investigated.”

Hungarian MEP Viktoria Mohacsi said: “It is Nazism and it is serious.”

Thugs are still out there

Amid the financial doom and gloom, and the ubiquitous focus on recession statistics, it's easy to forget there are dangers elsewhere. The government's higher education minister, David Lammy, warned last week that unless there's a sustained and organised fight against the British National Party, there's a real risk that, come the European elections next year, the BNP could win enough votes to become the British equivalent of Jean Marie Le Pen's Front National in France.

Lammy doesn't have a decent profile and it's no surprise, therefore, that his warning went largely unnoticed. Even claiming that Labour had to wise-up and copy the "grass-roots" strategy of Barack Obama's US presidential campaign, whilst emphasising that the would-be president and himself share Harvard credentials, Lammy's message was a tangential whisper in the party political clamour for economic credibility.

All of which must be delighting the manipulative thugs that continue to try to pass themselves off as a credible party. The BNP's latest bilge attempts to link the claimed reduction in high-level thinking among 14-year-olds to the rise in the ethnic make-up of British teenagers. There's no point in analysing the BNP's failure to understand simple mathematical correlations. Racist dunces often resort to statistics to "prove" their prejudices.

This time it's numbers from the Office of National Statistics on the Third World origins of immigrant children, linked by the BNP school-of-infant-adding-up to a study of teenage mental aptitude by Professor Michael Sayer of King's College London.

The BNP's conclusion? Because "white" pupils are now outnumbered (total junk maths) by Asian and black children, our precious imperial standards are falling.

Lammy saying Labour have "failed" to address white working-class concerns, I can understand. What I can't comprehend is why Professor Sayer isn't hugely outraged at the way the BNP have kidnapped his work, woven selective lifts from his study into its own numerical diarrhoea and, Goebbels-like, conjured up a racist myth.

So where is the measure of more short-attention television programming, computer games and the rest? Where is the multivariate analysis, the simulations and surrogate models that accommodate the dimensionality of what's being looked at? Hell, that sounds like a tough night in for the wooden tops at BNP headquarters.

So let's be careful out there. In between the FTSE and Dow Jones, there's the BNP. As Lammy says, pay attention.
