  • Deport BNP council tax cheats!

    [Published in the Evening Standard last week, by Andrew Gilligan]

    Three of the BNP’s new councillors in Barking and Dagenham have been taken to court for owing thousands of pounds in rent and council tax.

    The local authority has secured county court judgements against two, a third is being threatened with bailiffs, and a fourth is involved in a council probe into a potential £10,000 housing benefit fraud.

    The disclosures will be hugely embarassing to the racist party, which has claimed ethnic minorities are being given a “free ride” by “suffering council-tax payers”.

    They come after the BNP’s group leader on the council, Richard Barnbrook, was exposed as the director of a gay porn film, despite his party’s anti-gay stance. Robert Buckley, the new BNP councillor for Mayesbrook ward, appeared at Ilford County Court yesterday after failing to pay his rent for five months. After the hearing, Mr Buckley said his attendance allowance as a councillor would help him pay the debt.

    He said: “I had an ongoing battle with the council and eventually I gave up and decided not to pay.”

    Claire Doncaster, one of the new BNP councillors for the Alibon ward, was taken to court last year. Rent arrears of £2,280 have still not been paid. Ms Doncaster said: “We are actually getting the money now.” The BNP took 11 seats in Barking and Dagenham in the local elections.

      They come over here, take our houses, steal our seats, sleep with our women…

      Okay, they don’t get to sleep with many women

      Ha ha ha! The rampant stupidity of the BNP really is the gift that keeps on giving. Porn, inability to understand basic council procedures, benefit fraud, non payment of council tax and plotting to kill politicians. What will those crazy right wingers come up with next?

    4. Kismet Hardy — on 29th May, 2006 at 10:24 pm  

      A buzzer

    5. Clairwil — on 29th May, 2006 at 10:59 pm  

      A buzzer -but will they know how to press it. Will they know what it is? I can just see them gathered round it wondering if it’s witchcraft or the devils work.

    6. Kismet Hardy — on 29th May, 2006 at 11:01 pm  

      It’s time they put their hands up…

    7. Clairwil — on 29th May, 2006 at 11:09 pm  

      ….only to find they’d done it at the wrong time and voted for a 30% funding increase for the local refugee arts project.

      Nothing the BNP does surprises me. It is a little known fact that the BNP only have one brain cell between them, and most of the time Nick Griffin needs it for interviews with the press, so what do you expect?

      String ‘em up.

      oh those naughty bnp councillors, the shame of living with todays problem DEBT.
      mind you they still have a long way to go before they level the perverts we read about in the three main political parties.
      keep up your replies soft lad your quite funny really.

      This should definatly warrant imprisonment. Hopefully in HMP Brixton or Belmarsh!!

    15. Sunny — on 30th May, 2006 at 11:52 pm  

      And more….

      THE British National Party are in crisis over allegations that one of their most senior members tried to recruit a leading UK Nazi into a criminal conspiracy to assassinate prominent politicians and members of the British establishment.


      A British National Party councillor faced calls to resign after being convicted of racially abusing a group of Asian men.

      Last September he was ordered to do 100 hours’ community service after assaulting his wife and a policeman.
      from here

      This is outrageous. I feel a name and shame style story coming on featuring each member with details of the dreadful things they’re all up to. In the past couple of months alone we have fraudulent activity (avoidance of council tax), gay porn, racially abusing Asian men, recruiting Nazi members and I’m sure there’s more. Grr.
