  • BNP’s Barnbrook first lies, then hides


    by Sunny
    21st July, 2009 at 12:47 pm    

    “BNP London Assembly Member Richard Barnbrook failed to attend the Standards Hearing into his conduct today due to a ‘stress related illness’,” reports Adam Bienkov. So why was he being investigated in the first place?
    Because:

    he brought his office into disrepute by falsely claiming three murders had taken place over a three-week period in the Barking and Dagenham area.

    So first he lied, and then refused to apologise for lying. And now he won’t attend the hearing because he’s “ill”. These BNP councillors really are the model of British democracy aren’t they? BNP officials are in fact very good at lying…

      OH

      MY

      GOD!

      A politician might not tell the truth!

      Quick burn them burn them!!!!!!

      What a worthless post…………..

      “A stress related illness”

      Oh dear, I do hope it’s nothing serious.

    3. Amrit — on 21st July, 2009 at 6:53 pm  

      a ’stress related illness’

      Well, you know what they say about what building up a perpetual web of lies does to a person… They live in constant fear of being found out and brought to Standards Hearings…

      This is the way to fight the Brains-Not-Present crowd, though. Show them up for the thoroughly unlovable buffoons that they are.

    4. Daniel Hoffmann-Gill — on 21st July, 2009 at 7:17 pm  

      One suspects that ‘mysteryman’ is a bit of a BNP supporter failing to see how funny it that a member of the ubermensch has a stress related illness.

    5. JuliaM — on 21st July, 2009 at 7:21 pm  

      “These BNP councillors really are the model of British democracy aren’t they?”

      Given Labour’s performance over the last decade, sounds like they’ll fit right in, actually..

    6. Daniel Hoffmann-Gill — on 21st July, 2009 at 7:32 pm  

      Oh and there is JuliaM to go:

      “LOOK OVER THERE AT SOME LABOUR COUNCILLORS!”

      I’m not sure how good it feels defending the BNP all the time JuliaM but I hope you ethnic heritage is very, very pure…

    7. JuliaM — on 21st July, 2009 at 7:43 pm  

      ‘Some’..?

      Lol!

      “I’m not sure how good it feels defending the BNP all the time JuliaM…”

      I don’t know, either. Because I don’t. I believe the BNP are their own worst enemies, and their own best advert NOT to vote for them. And have said so many, many times, on my own blog and others.

      Some people, though, prefer to argue with the phantom in their own head, rather than the words in front of them. I guess they find it easier..

    8. Edna Welthorpe — on 21st July, 2009 at 8:17 pm  

      The BNP’s representatives are a ghastly embarrassment to Thinking British Nationalsits but Barnbrook seemed smarter than most.

      One assumes that he got it wrong and said aloud that several of the kind of ‘at-risk youth’ who make life in a vibrant and enriched neighborhood so enjoyable for all have been busily shooting and/or stabbing one another or perhaps shooting or stabbing other people in the course of robbing them at knifepoint and - horrors - Barnbrook got the figures wrong and said that there were more murders in a given period than was actually the case.

      Interesting that this allegation of shameful BNP lying came in the same week that CIVITAS said aloud that the state-funded ideocrats of the Race Relations Industry had been industriously lying about how many council houses had or had not been allocated to Kurds, Turks, Congolese, Nigerians, Bosniaks, Moroccans, Iraqis and …

    9. billericaydicky — on 21st July, 2009 at 8:59 pm  

      And just to bring you all down to earth. Barnbrook was phoned in my presence at about midday today and he was in a pub and pissed, according to the person I was with who was speaking to him.

      What had happened was that some months ago he made totally unsubstantiated statements about three stabbings by ethnic minorities in Barking and Dagenham which the Met had no record of and said so. He was up for a diciplinary hearing for bringing the GLA into disrepute.

    10. Daniel Hoffmann-Gill — on 21st July, 2009 at 11:24 pm  

      JuliaM:

      Glad I made you leet speak, although I wish I found your support of the BNP as funny but I don’t, it makes me want to vomit in your face.

      Oops!

      ANYWHO, LOOK OVER THERE AT THE LABOUR COUNCILLORS! NOTHING TO SEE HERE!

    11. Sunny — on 22nd July, 2009 at 1:38 am  

      You don’t want to defend the BNP eh JuliaM, but someone has to do it! Might as well be you!

    12. JuliaM — on 22nd July, 2009 at 5:50 am  

      “..I wish I found your support of the BNP as funny..”

      If you’ve found a post or comment of mine supproting the BNP explicitly, and not some underlying principle like freedom of speech, do link to it.

      Put up or shut up, little boy.

      “You don’t want to defend the BNP eh JuliaM..”

      I don’t need to. You and your fellow travellers in the Labour party are giving them all the publicity they need, I’m sorry to say…

    13. mysteryman — on 22nd July, 2009 at 10:16 am  

      Julia M:

      Some people, though, prefer to argue with the phantom in their own head, rather than the words in front of them. I guess they find it easier..

      Seems to be the theme of this site these days, Munir is a specialist in fact!

      Daniel Hoffmann-Gill — on 21st July, 2009 at 7:17 pm
      You couldn’t be more wrong, I would vote for the BNP but only for the free “holiday” they keep promising me, I just need to save up for my return ticket as apparently that isn’t part of the deal? Until then I’ll continue to view them as the useful idiots they are. Useful for exposing fascists and racists of a different kind, useful for pressuring the Gobment to actually listen to the people on immigration, and for weeding out dodgy communists who propose one failed ideology instead of another.

      Don’t forget now people you live in a “Democracy”, that means you can’t disagree with the communist supporters of Searchlight. If you do that would lead to the suspicion that you’re a Nazi who is secretly planning to a few million, not like the hundred or so million the communists killed obviously because that was alright and is worthy of our support.

      One thing I have noticed in my dealing with communists is that they do cling onto some terrible ideas and fight for them with a blind and desperate gusto which says much about the idea in the first place but, you have to admire such blind adherence to utterly unworkable ideas. Wise words indeed.

    14. Daniel Hoffmann-Gill — on 22nd July, 2009 at 12:24 pm  

      JuliaM:

      You seem to be being thick, which having come across your comments before is of little surprise but I’ll try and spell it out. Here goes!

      In a blog post about a BNP councillor, who is clearly a bit of a tit and a monstrous old bigot, never mind a weakling ducking out of taking his licks for spreading falsehoods about crime to fit the BNP myth that all crime is done by non-whites and if you ship them all back to Africa the UK will be crime free (I digress), you say:

      “Given Labour’s performance over the last decade, sounds like they’ll fit right in, actually..”

      In other words you don’t comment on the issue at hand, you just attack Labour like some kind of deformed Pavlov’s dog and in doing so are COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT OF THE ARTICLE and it is in this silence from you that the tacit BNP support leaks out.

      Either than or you troll left of centre blogs to leave stupid comments?

      Which is it? Are you a bit of Nazi or are you a troll?

      Either/Or/Both.

      Answers on your a very British postcard to Pickled Politics.

    15. Daniel Hoffmann-Gill — on 22nd July, 2009 at 12:34 pm  

      Mysteryman:

      It’s clear which side of the intelligence wire you fall on wih your cooing over Julia but this did make me laugh:

      “Seems to be the theme of this site these days, Munir is a specialist in fact!”

      Perhaps stop coming here then? Rather than just slagging off posts with no intelligent argument, which in turn also makes you look like a BNP supporting half-wit.

      And keep up youth, Griffin retracted the send them all home policy, realising that the UK would be empty aside from some tiny gene pool inbreeding goons in Shropshire, Lincolnshire and the Border lands.

      Anyone who thinks the BNP useful is at best a cretin and at worst a neo-Nazi sympathiser, I mean I’m sure there were some Christian Socialists in the 1920s Germany that found the antics of the German Labour Party good for shaking up the apple cart, until the name change and they got into power and nearly destroyed ther world.

      I find it’s best to strike at idiocy in its infantile stage, so this goes for the BNP.

      It is clear to me you have issues with Communists, did one of them touch you as a child or offer to show you his puppies?

      Either way you seem to have forgotten or ignored that Communists are not in power and are no where near being in power and why are you dealing with Communists when you’re clearly a bit of a right-winger, in fact what the fuck are you doing here you plum?

      “One thing I have noticed in my dealing with communists”

      You forgot to addd ‘on the Internet’, which is not real life and never will be or has been, perhaps stop dealing with them if it irks you so much, perhaps get a life and stop taking to people who hold polarised political views from you.

      YOU DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH COMMUNISTS!

      See, you feel better already don’t you melon?

    16. hantsboy — on 22nd July, 2009 at 1:14 pm

      9

      Barnbrook should have got his facts right as his detractors will jump for joy at the chance to attack him.

      There is plenty of evidence of knife crime amongst our ‘diverse ‘ inner city population so perhaps he’ll get it right next time.

    17. Jai — on 22nd July, 2009 at 4:00 pm  

      Daniel Hoffman-Gill,

      The “communist” allegations are pretty funny, considering that quite a few regular commenters on this blog who generally agree with PP’s basic ethos are actually card-carrying capitalists. Not to mention the fact that a number of the people concerned are neither “lefties” in the traditional stereotypical sense nor indeed necessarily Labour supporters…..

      Anyway…..

      Griffin retracted the send them all home policy, realising that the UK would be empty aside from some tiny gene pool inbreeding goons in Shropshire, Lincolnshire and the Border lands.

      Apparently his exact words in relation to the proposed “voluntary” repatriation programme were “Nobody out there wants it, and nobody wants to pay for it”.

      The latter point is pertinent to say the least, considering that Griffin had previous suggested £50k as the “generous financial incentive” — because, for 6 million non-white British citizens, that works out at a staggering £300,000,000,000.

      And that’s even before you add white “foreigners” who also fall into the BNP’s repatriation target list, such as Australians etc, as per the BNP’s responses to eGov’s latest questions list a few weeks ago.

      I’m glad to see that someone at the BNP finally “did the math”.

    18. JuliaM — on 22nd July, 2009 at 4:54 pm  

      “In other words you don’t comment on the issue at hand, you just attack Labour like some kind of deformed Pavlov’s dog and in doing so are COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT OF THE ARTICLE and it is in this silence from you that the tacit BNP support leaks out.”

      I take it that’s your clumsy way of trying to row back your claims that I’m a BNP supporter, is it? Since you won’t have found anything in your no-doubt desperate search.

      Oh, dear, 1 out of 10, must do better…

      I’ll comment on what I want to comment on, and am not insecure enough to need to preface everything with ‘oh, I don’t support the BNP!’ (like most of your fellow travellers). That shouldn’t need saying.

      Don’t let your typing fingers write checks your brain isn’t able to cash in future, is my advice… :)

    19. Daniel Hoffmann-Gill — on 22nd July, 2009 at 5:42 pm  

      Bloody hell, hantsboy shows that this place in swimming in right-wing lords of the bigot dance.

      Cool.

      Well hello JuliaM darling, nice of you to comment again, seriously, thanks a bunch.

      But I can’t really respond to you when all you do is repeat what I said and then use a smiley.

      Isn’t there something else you can go and blame on Labour lover?

      Heh.

    20. JuliaM — on 22nd July, 2009 at 6:40 pm  

      “But I can’t really respond to you…”

      You didn’t actually NEED those last 14 words. You could have stopped right there.

      It was accurate as it was, and anyone reading this thread can see that. :)

    21. Jai — on 22nd July, 2009 at 7:28 pm  

      This may be of interest too:

      “BNP supporters ‘beat man who clashed with Griffin’”.

      http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/bnp-supporters-beat-man-who-clashed-with-griffin-1755871.html

      Extract:

      “Supporters of the British National Party were accused last night of operating like “a private army” after they set upon a man who poured a drink on the group’s leader.

      David Drew MP told the House of Commons last night that a “totally upstanding” constituent was given “one hell of a hiding” by BNP supporters.

      He said the attack took place as Nick Griffin, the leader of the BNP who was last month elected as a Member of the European Parliament, was visiting Painswick, Gloucestershire. “I don’t know why he was wined and dined in my constituency in Painswick but he was,” Mr Drew said. “It just so happens that one of my constituents took offence at this and happened to spill some beer over Mr Griffin. As a result of this he was given one hell of a hiding.”

      The MP for Stroud added: “I am not prepared to accept that any politician has a private army. I am not prepared to have the BNP anywhere near my constituency. But I hope that we will look at the actions of the BNP.”

      He told the Commons that he knew the victim, whom he said he was proud to be associated with, but that an arrest and charges were unlikely to be made because the constituent was too shocked to pursue it. “That’s just indicative of what the BNP is like,” the MP said.

      The Deputy Commons Leader Barbara Keeley said the allegation of the attack was a “serious thing”.”

      JuliaM and Daniel clearly have existing issues and they might want to take them elswhere.

      I don’t cotton to JuliaM, but having glanced at her blog, I think BNP apologist is pushing it. Seemed a bit UKIP to me. Daniel strikes me as a jerk. Is this really your forum, guys?

      It’s not really my place to say, but we don’t need imported vendettas. We can provide those in-house.

    23. mysteryman — on 22nd July, 2009 at 9:39 pm  

      Daniel Hoffmann-Gill:

      Oh dear, the entire “One thing I have noticed in my dealing with……..” line was a direct cut and paste from your very own website, minus the very obvious word of course, now did I forget to add words or did you? Keep striking away at that idiocy eh?

      The BNP are not the German Nazi party, a good few of their members, particularly the older lot, probably believe that shit but who really cares? They are way off being elected here, in fact I don’t believe it will ever happen as they are a white supremacist organization and the average brit just won’t have it. The average brit is worried about immigration though, 49% according to that YouGov survey Channel 4 covered, and the failure of government to reflect the wishes of such a large portion of the population and continual panicked posts such as this non-story is why they have fared better recently.

      Why give the BNP more coverage than they can generate themselves? The standard practice of linking to Searchlight/hope not hate/UAF is infuriating, don’t you see who they are? The other side of the coin, the extremists of the other persuasion and no less dangerous. Look (not so) closely, see them with those commie links/attitudes as well as courting dodgy Islamists? Is this the best solution that we can offer as a reason not to vote for the BNP? They are so obviously a bad thing.

      Which group in the last few months have been seen, on live TV as well as on less obvious occasions, to use organised political violence? The BNP or Searchlight ?
      Can’t you see that to some people the suggestion that the only English people in the country are “from some tiny gene pool inbreeding goons” is insulting?

      Why insult the people you are trying to steer away from extremism? Can’t you see how you push people towards them with this attitude?

      Nearly one million people voted for the BNP in a pretty worthless show election for the EU thing, shall we try and work out why before we have a real election ?

      Maybe if everyone else started telling them to “perhaps get a life and stop taking to people who hold polarised political views” they’ll change their minds and support these other extremists. Hmm that won’t end in tears now will it?

    24. mysteryman — on 22nd July, 2009 at 9:45 pm  

      Oh and Jai — on 22nd July, 2009 at 7:28 pm the MP appears to be lying, making the exact same mistake I took issue with Hoffmann-Gill for.

      The lad who was “given one hell of a hiding” by the BNPs “private army” forgot to mention it in his own interview, see:

      JuliaM:

      You’re as funny as cancer so well done on that and you missed the end of the quote off:

      “But I can’t really respond to you when all you do is repeat what I said and then use a smiley.”

      How silly of you, try harder next time duck!

      Don:

      Alrright Don, how are you mate? Seriously, pull your head out your arse, this seems like exactly the forum because mostly the posts might err on the left but the comments err on the right and seem tobe a fine breeding ground for idiocy.

      Cool.

      mysteryman:

      Like Julia M you have a habit of writing a long paragraph with little content, take your first one, babble.

      Show me where I said that the BNP are the German Nazi party?

      People who are “worried about immigration” do so because they are ill informed and ill-served by their meida, which pumps out a whole raft of lies and feeds ignorance, we all know bigotry comes from ignorance, like my dad, he hated asylum seekers and was “worried about immigration” until I made him volunteer some of his retired time to work with some asylum seekers.

      That was some years ago and although he still reads the Mail, he does so with a sharper eye for their ill-research nonsense.

      And I wouldn’t class Searchlight/hope not hate/UAF as extremists, I’ll class them as fine peopel that do a good job of keeping tabs on neo-Nazis.

      And then you go and say commie and lose all credibility.

      “Can’t you see that to some people the suggestion that the only English people in the country are “from some tiny gene pool inbreeding goons” is insulting?”

      Indeed but only if you’re so puffed up with self-importance and racisl pride that you need to be brough crashing down to earth that such things as national identity are invented and divisive horseshit that is best saved for cheering on football teams rather than influencing your political decisions.

      And if anyone if pushed to extremism by my sentences, I think we’d all agree they’re pretty mentally weak.

      Smashing.

    26. douglas clark — on 23rd July, 2009 at 12:10 pm  

      DH-G,

      ‘Cool’ and ‘Smashing’ are rhetorically you agreeing with yourself. Can you see a problem with that? It makes me, for one, think nostalgically about Jimmy Saville. Well, perhaps nostalgically isn’t the right word…

    27. mysteryman — on 23rd July, 2009 at 9:21 pm  

      Daniel Hoffmann-Gill

      My first paragraph was not babble at all, complex to you though it may be, I was responding to your earlier post (15) and laughing at you for criticising your own words. Look on your own page I’ll even give you the link:
      http://danielhg.blogspot.com/2009/07/bnp-backtracks-on-racist-policy1-down.html

      One thing I have noticed in my dealing with……..

      Your first post on this very page uses the word ubermensch when talking about the BNP and this is where you have linked them to zee germans.

      I like how you have decided the nearly half of the entire country are idiots for worrying about immigration, good grasp of democracy you have there!

      Your admiration for those engaged in political violence, even if you agree with their aims, speaks volumes about the kind of person you are. Smashing isn’t just the word you end your post with is it? It’s also what you think should be done to anyone that doesn’t agree with your strange views on the world! Just what exactly did you do to your poor father to “make him volunteer”?

      Thankfully extremists such as yourself are in the minority and are easily exposed.
