Recently eGov sent the BNP a list of the ’85 Questions’. We have now received an answer to the first twenty questions, while the other questions remain unanswered, with no indication of when they will be. The response was written by Lee John Barnes, a member of the BNPâ€™s legal affairsâ€™ team and a well-known blogger. Below his unedited response, a number of us have printed our collective reaction to his answers:
1. Would Nick Griffin, Andrew Brons and all other members of the BNP be willing to submit to multiple independent DNA tests in order to confirm that none of them have any non-European ancestry within a particular timeframe (eg. the last 3000 years)?
Why? It is not BNP policy to utilise or demand DNA tests on members.
2. If Nick Griffin, Andrew Brons, or any other members of the BNP are found to have any non-European ancestry at all within the timeframe mentioned above, would the individuals concerned be willing to resign their membership of the BNP immediately and, upon the election of a future BNP government, submit to all the policies which would be implemented, including repatriation to a country which is the closest match for their non-European ancestry?
Another non-sequitur – as the BNP do not ask members to submit to DNA tests why should we require someone to leave the BNP on any such basis.
3.On what basis can the BNP, specifically Nick Griffin, credibly insist that it is not actually a white supremacist organisation, when non-white British citizens are barred from joining it despite the fact that no such restrictions apply to white/Caucasian people originating from outside Britain?
We live in a multi-cultural society predicated upon the principle that every community has the right to organise ethno-specific groups to represent and protect their community interests in our multi-cultural society.
All other racial, ethnic, national, religious groups within Britain have specific organisations to represent and promote their community interests from charities to legal lobby groups. The ONLY group in our multi-cultural society that has no ethno-specific community organisations to represent their interests as a racial group are the indigenous White British, English, Northern Irish, Welsh and Scottish. The Equality Bill presently before Parliament adds to the plethora of existing laws under the Race Relations Acts and will impose positive discrimination, affirmative action plans and quotas as regards non-white racial groups that will actively discriminate against indigenous Britons and White Europeans in Britain on the grounds of their sex and race. Therefore until the Race Relations Acts, all anti-free speech laws and the Equality Bill are repealed then the BNP will exist to fight for the interests of all indigenous White British citizens, and all assimilated White European peoples within Britain who self classify themselves as White British, who suffer direct and indirect racial discrimination based on their racial origins as a result of the racist Race Relations Acts and the Equality Bill.
4.Specifically which policies of the National Front in relation to non-white British citizens do Andrew Brons and the BNP as a whole renounce or support?
Ask him. The BNP have no interest in the National Front or its policies.
5.Specifically which policies and ideology of the historical German Nazi party does the BNP as a whole renounce or support, considering the confirmed admiration for Hitler and his organisation amongst several senior members of the BNP?
All of it. Calling the BNP ‘fascist’ or ‘Nazi’ makes about as much sense as calling the Labour Party ‘Communist’ or ‘Bolshevik’, it bears no basis to reality. When the media start to believe their own propaganda then the media are in the grip of a self constructed psychosis.
6. Specifically which aspects of Hitlerâ€™s book Mein Kampf does Nick Griffin agree with, considering that he is on record as stating that he has â€œlearned a lotâ€ from it?
7. How does the BNP reconcile historical and ongoing admiration of the Nazis and their policies with a) the fact that Britain went to war to destroy the Nazis, including subsequently supporting the prosecution and execution of various senior Nazis and other captured members of Nazi Germany for war crimes and crimes against humanity, and b) the fact that the BNP has been declaring the actions of Britain during WW2, including several major victories, as â€œexamples of British greatnessâ€?
1) The BNP does not admire the Nazis
2) Our fathers and grandparents were the ones who fought and died against the Nazis – did yours?
3) Our fathers and grandfathers fought for freedom from fascism, today we fight for freedom from Liberal Fascism, Political Correctness, Globalism, Islamism and the Corporate Media that undermine our democracy. The struggle is the same, only the enemies are different.
8. How does the BNP reconcile the above with a) Nick Griffin praising the Waffen SS and simultaneously attacking the RAF for its bombing of Nazi Germany during his time as editor of The Rune between 1995 and 1997, b) the fact that, during a demonstration at Coventry Cathedral in 1998, Nick Griffin accused British airmen involved in the wartime effort of having engaged in â€œmass murderâ€, and c) the fact that Nick Griffin has been on record as claiming that the Holocaust is a â€œhoaxâ€ perpetrated by the victorious Allied powers, making the following statement in 1998: â€œI am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that 6 million Jews were gassed and cremated and turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also once held that the Earth was flatâ€¦..I have reached the conclusion that the â€œexterminationâ€ tale is a mixture of Allied wartime propaganda, extremely profitable lie, and latter witch-hysteriaâ€?
9.Will the BNPâ€™s proposed policies in relation to non-white British citizens also be applicable to Jewish British citizens? If the answer is â€œYesâ€, then all further queries in relation to non-white British citizens should be interpreted to also include Jewish British citizens.
It may have escaped your notice that most Jewish people in the UK are white. Those Jews who are not white mainly live either in Ethiopia or Israel. Note that the Israeli government have been accused of racism for stopping any more Black Jews entering Israel – http://www.africaresource.com/rasta/sesostris-the-great-the-egyptian-hercules/ethiopian-black-jews-denounce-racist-israeli-minister/
10.Nick Griffin has claimed that the BNPâ€™s policies and ideology are in line with the teachings of Christianity. Is the BNP therefore claiming that, as the Head of the Church of England, Queen Elizabeth II agrees with the BNPâ€™s interpretation of Christianity? If not, is the BNP claiming that the Queenâ€™s own interpretation of Christianity is wrong?
1) The BNP is a secular party that defends British culture which includes Christianity.
2) We have no idea of the Queen’s interpretation of Christianity and nor would we assert we do.
3) What the Queen believes is her own private opinion and we would suggest that you mind your own business and leave the Queen alone and not use her as a political football in your infantile attacks upon the BNP.
11.After the election of a BNP government, what would be the official policy in relation to Gurkhas who have served in the British armed forces and/or are serving at that particular time, ie. Will the recently-awarded right to British citizenship be revoked; will Gurkhas already possessing British citizenship due to military service be â€œencouragedâ€ to engage in â€œvoluntary repatriationâ€; will Gurkhas possessing British citizenship be afforded identical legal rights and protections as white/Caucasian British citizens?
1) Gurkhas who served in the British armed forces will be given by a BNP government a much larger inflation linked army pension within their own country based on the exact same amount of money as those pensions that all ex-British Army veterans get in the UK, which we will also link to rises in inflation, and they will also have the right to enter the UK and utilise British NHS services etc at any time. Those who wished to settle in the UK on medical grounds would be allowed to settle in the UK with members of their extended families and receive NHS treatment and government relocation assistence.
12.Under a BNP government, would other non-white members of the British armed forces currently possessing British citizenship be afforded identical legal rights and protections as white/Caucasian British citizens?
13.During its various references to Britainâ€™s historical participation in the two World Wars of the 20th century, why does the BNP never mention the fact that millions of non-white soldiers from the former British Empire fought alongside white/Caucasian soldiers on the side of the Allied powers in both World Wars, including 2.5 million soldiers from the Indian subcontinent during WW2 (comprising the largest volunteer army in recorded history), and including numerous non-white soldiers who were awarded medals for their military service and performance by the British authorities of the time?
Yes they did, as did many of their own peoples who also fought alongside the Nazis from members of Indian Legion in the Waffen SS to Muslim dividions in the Waffen SS. All Empires in history have utilised people within the boundaries of their Empire to fight for them. That does not mean we in Britain should open our borders today to every one who fought for the British Army in World War Two or their descendants. They were handed back their countries after the fall of Empire as the prize of their sacrifice in WW2 and therefore we, and our children, do not owe them anything today. Britain no longer has an Empire, therefore we no longer owe them any debt or have any responsibility for them in any way.
Their reward was to be given back their own countries after the war.
14.To what extent does the BNP renounce or support the policies and ideologies of modern-day Neo-Nazi organisations across Europe, especially considering Nick Griffinâ€™s ongoing efforts to build a pan-European alliance with organisations similar to the BNP based on the European mainland?
We are Nationalists. Nazis are pan-nationalist Aryanists. They are not nationalists. Therefore the BNP has no contacts with Neo-Nazi organisations. Unfortunately the media suffering in the grip of its own psychosis, is not intelligent enough, rational enough or impartial enough to actually educate themselves about the facts nor tell the truth about what the BNP actually stands for.
15. To what extent does the BNP renounce or support the policies and ideology of the Ku Klux Klan in the United States, considering Nick Griffinâ€™s confirmed links with the organisation?
We are 100 % against such groups. Nick Griffin has never had any links with the KKK. This is just another media lie. I once stood in a lift with Keith Richards, does this mean I am member of The Rolling Stones ? Tony Blair has met and shook hands with Gerry Adams and Nelson Mandela, does that mean he was in the IRA and the ANC ?
16.What percentage of BNP members, especially those at the senior levels of the organisation, are currently or have historically been active in participating on the white supremacist Stormfront internet forum and agree with the primary ethos of the website and its founder?
Who knows and who cares. We believe in free speech. We may not like what some of our own people believe or say but as long as we live in a democracy and they stay within the law that is their own business. We do not police peoples minds. Only Liberal Fascists feel that they must have laws and powers to invstigate what people think and say. The real fascists in this country are those who in the name of anti-fascism and ‘ The War Against Terrorism’ have created the most pernicious fascist regime in this countries entire history – from the CCTV surveillance society where we have the most amount of cameras in the world in Britain, trackers bugs in wheelie bins, all E Mails being collected, all phone calls being tapped, secret police databases being built up on peoples opinions, ID cards, DNA swabs, samples and records stored in secret databases, secret evidence allowed in court cases, internment without trial and extraordinary rendition flights from UK airports. Whilst the real fascists are in power, their lackeys use the media to peddle myths to the public about the ‘fascist BNP’. How dumb must people be not to see the New Labour Police State all around them.
17.As public figures seeking high political office, would the BNP be willing to release the names of senior party members who are currently or have historically been active in participating on the Stormfront internet forum?
We do not collect that information and frankly no-one cares, apart or course, from those liberal, leftist and media idiots that see fascists everwhere, except in the reflection of their own mirrors or in the New Labour government that has created the Police State we are forced to live in today.
The real fascists in this country are the ones in Parliament and the Media. They conspire to steal our rights and liberties and then to divert peoples attentions away from the truth by pointing at the BNP and calling us ‘fascists’. The real fascists run our country, the police, ACPO, the Trades Unions, the Corporate Media and the nationalised banks.
18.How will a BNP government ensure the safety of Britainâ€™s female population, considering that a senior member of the BNP has been on record as stating that he believes â€œwomen enjoy being rapedâ€?
What this BNP member said was idiotic. That was one members stupid opinion. He is not alone though in saying idiotic things. This entire questionaire is full of idiotic questions and statements and the entire country run is by corrupt idiots who believe in nonsense and talk lies and speak rubbish.
Seeing as women in London who are raped or sexually assaulted are most likely to be victims of foreign criminals allowed into our country, then once we have deported most of them then all women of all races in our country will be far safer.
Race is clearly a factor both in victims and perpetrators of rapes in London.
Scotland Yard is treating the evidence with care because it has sensitive racial overtones. It suggests a disproportionately high involvement of young black or Asian males in group sex attacks and that a high proportion of the victims are white females.
Women and girls of white or European appearance accounted for 59% of victims with 28% of victims described as African or Caribbean.
Suspects of African or Caribbean backgrounds were identified in 49% of attacks or allegation of assaults and 13% were committed by men of Indian or Pakistani appearance.
We also have exposed the issue of Muslim gang rape of young white children and will impose Capital Punishment upon any individuals involved in grooming childen for sex and prostitution.
FOREIGNERS carried out one in six rapes in Britain last year, police figures have revealed.
And migrant workers, illegal immigrants and even tourists were responsible for up to a third of all sex attacks in some areas.
In Greater London, the worst area affected, foreigners were charged in connection with one in three rapes, statistics obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show. Other areas with large immigration populations â€“ Cambridgeshire, Merseyside, Hertfordshire, Avon and Somerset â€“ also recorded high numbers of non-UK citizens charged with sex attacks.
Police blame the influx of eastern Europeans into Britain following EU enlargement in 2004 for compounding the problem and have called for tougher border controls.
19. How will a BNP government ensure the safety, protection and welfare of Britainâ€™s current and future disabled population, considering that a senior member of the BNP has been on record as stating that he supports forced euthanasia of the handicapped and others deemed to be â€œa waste of time, money and resourcesâ€, including the very old and (especially) newborn babies, in response to the death of David Cameronâ€™s baby in spring 2009?
Once again a single member said something stupid. What he said has nothing to do with BNP policy. The BNP have not passed the Abortion Laws that since 1967 have killed 6 million babies in Britain. Nor are the BNP the government that allows abortion for babies over 24 weeks if they are disabled. Many of the disabled in this country are lucky to have ever been born seeing as they can aborted at any time under the present abortion laws. They are lucky to be alive today due to Labour, Liberal and Tory policies which made a disability as grounds for a late abortion. The BNP respect all our people. Many of our top activists are also either disabled or have family members who suffer from disabilities.
Below is a story about comments made by individual Tory councillors talking rubbish, so does this mean the Tories are anti-disabled and will sterilise the White working class?
A sick Tory has suggested saving cash by killing off disabled children in care.
Senior councillor Hugh Jackson made the vile remark just days after David Cameron visited his area and claimed the party had changed.
Tory John Ward, who sits on Medway council, Kent, quit on Tuesday after calling for jobless mums, like Karen Matthews, to be sterilised.
20. What contingency measures does the BNP plan in order to effectively deal with the likely massive increase in accident- and illness-related casualties and deaths amongst the British population due to the rapid collapse of the NHS upon the pre-emptive emigration and/or expulsion/repatriation of non-white British citizens currently working as medical professionals in the NHS, considering that 16% of nurses are non-white, as are 40% of new dentists and 58% of new doctors ? (Figures: June 2009)
More nonsense conjecture based on media rubbish. The BNP will begin a phased plan of re-nationalising the International Health Service that used to be the National Health Service. We will no longer steal medical staff from the Developing World and rob the poorest people on the planet of their precious doctors and nurses. We will ensure that the NHS is able to run and function with British medical graduates as opposed to asset stripping the Developing World of their medical staff and leaving hundreds of millions of poor, mainly Black people without any health care. The theft of nurses from Africa is a crime against humanity. In the midst of the AID’s epidemic, famines and social collapse the NHS has plundered the continent for its most essential and valuable people. This has to stop. There is no moral argument for using African doctors and nurses in the NHS, only what should be shame. As the NHS is re-nationalised then contracts for foreign staff will be phased out.
Pickled Politics’/eGov’s reaction:
The refusal to submit to DNA tests to prove their whiteness is very striking, as it undermines the BNPâ€™s modus operandi, which rests on a racial ideal of â€˜Britishnessâ€™, rather than a cultural one.
The â€˜ask himâ€™ response is also telling, as it would surely only take a simple denial to disprove these assertions. Given that the ’85 Questions’ have made it onto television, and have been sent to the BNP, it is unlikely that Nick Griffin is unaware of them. While the lack of a denial doesnâ€™t prove anything, it fails to quash such assertions.
A number of the questions are brushed aside, such as on the NHS, with the unproven statement that the BNP will simply find enough whites to do the job. They may well do, but given that such roles require years of training, it is unclear what will happen in the interim. Such a vacuum will hit children, old people and the disabled the hardest, since they tend to be, on average, the most vulnerable in society.
A small number of non-whites will be allowed to settle in Britain (answer to question 11). I wonder how that will go down with the wider membership, particularly as they like to downplay or even ignore that vast contribution made by millions of non-whites to the Imperial armed forces during the world wars.
The BNP has condemned those who condone rape and abuse against disabled children, yet rather than talk about action against said persons, they instead used the opportunity to launch another tirade against foreigners.
