BNP expects more arrests over leaked membership list


A COUNCILLOR who was kicked out of the BNP has been arrested in connection with the leaking of the party's membership list.
The Post understands Sadie Graham was one of two people arrested by Notts Police officers on Thursday.
A BNP spokesman has said he expects more arrests to be made in connection with the unauthorised publication of the list last month.
Simon Darby, press officer and member of the BNP, said: "News of the arrests was good because right from the onset we were under the impression that the police were taking it very seriously and were going to do something about it.

"I'm pleased because this is just the start. We expect other arrests as well.


"What people don't understand is that anybody that has been using the list, even newspapers, have been committing a criminal offence."
He added: "It is a shocking thing to do to publish the list.
"It's caused a lot of needless worry, anxiety and upset.
"We have had our privacy violated and published everywhere. We want justice for our members."
A police car with an officer inside was parked outside Ms Graham's home in Church Lane, Brinsley, last night.
Police were today sifting through boxes of evidence seized from her home.
Officers packed the boxes from Graham's terraced house into unmarked cars before leaving with a woman.
Coun Graham, now an independent nationalist at Broxtowe Borough Council, was dropped from the BNP in December last year.
A spokeswoman for Dyfed Powys Police said: "We can confirm that Notts Police arrested two people as part of a joint investigation with Dyfed Powys Police and the Information Commissioner's Office in conjunction with alleged criminal offences under the Data Protection Act. The arrests followed an investigation into a complaint received about the unauthorised release of the BNP party membership list."
The spokeswoman added that an army bomb disposal team was called to the address in Brinsley after a suspicious item was found. But the item was declared safe, with no further reaction required.
Dyfed Powys Police said today the two people arrested were granted police bail "pending further investigations" and were released last night.
Officers from Dyfed Powys Police and the Information Commissioner's officer are continuing the investigation.
The BNP membership list was published on an internet blog last month and was removed after complaints from the party. It featured more than 12,000 names including addresses, jobs and contact details.
The party has obtained an injunction banning the publication of the list. Coun Graham was unavailable for comment.

This is the blonde university graduate arrested on suspicion of leaking the British National Party membership list on the internet.

Sadie Graham, 29, a former councillor for the party, was one of two people held in connection with offences under the Data Protection Act.

The arrests at Ms Graham’s home came on Thursday as part of an investigation by the Information Commissioner’s office and the police.

Last month’s release of the party’s 13,500-strong membership list caused an uproar after thousands of people were identified as supporters of the far Right group, including serving police officers, members of the Armed Forces and even staff at Buckingham Palace.

Many were left fearing for their jobs and safety after the names of members were posted on the internet. Two weeks ago a car in West Yorkshire was fire-bombed. The name of a 26-year-old man who lived nearby was on the list, although he left the party last year.

It is believed that the second arrest was of Ms Graham’s husband of two months, Matthew Single, the BNP’s former head of security.

Ms Graham, a mother of one, and her husband were previously involved in a revolt at the top of the party which led to 60 members resigning last year.

The pair were accused of attempting to overthrow leader Nick Griffin while setting up an ‘anti-BNP smear blog’ attacking the failures of the party to progress electorally.

Following Ms Graham and Mr Single’s subsequent expulsion from the party, Nick Griffin obtained an injunction in April last year banning publication of a list of its members.

Ms Graham, a Nottingham University graduate, was named on the injunction along with her now husband and four other defendants including the party’s former head of administration Kenny Smith. The others named were Nicholla Smith, Stephen Blake and Ian Dawson.

On Friday police officers were seen taking boxes from Ms Graham’s and Mr Single’s terraced home in Brinsley, Nottinghamshire.

Ms Graham has already been targeted on the internet for her alleged leaking of the membership list. On YouTube a selection of pictures of her and allegations are displayed in a video to The Beatles song Sexy Sadie.

Ms Graham, now an independent councillor, used to be the BNP’s regional organiser for the East Midlands.

A police spokeswoman said: ‘Two people have been interviewed in conjunction with alleged criminal offences under the Data Protection Act relating to the complaint from the BNP about the release of their party membership list. They have now been bailed pending further investigations.’
A BNP spokesman said: ‘We are pleased that the police are taking this seriously.’

I really feel for Sadie. It must have been terrible being seperated from her baby all day. Griffin is wicked and evil. I don't believe for one minute that she did it.

I thought Darby was the deputy chairman? Is the BNP list true that mentions Collett as deputy chairman then, and when did that happen?

Have to admit that if shes innocent and griffin done it with spite then is a terible thing to do that to a young babie

I hadn't thought about that. If they had both been arrested who would have looked after the baby. I also don't think Sadie is guilty. Something isn't quite right here and I'm beginning to think the leak came from within the BNP itself. I just hope the police catch whoever is responsible.

Anti-gag said...

Griffin accuses Kenny Smith or Cllr Sadie Graham of leaking the party’s membership list, knowing they are in effect gagged (by the upcoming court case), and cannot reply to such allegations without risking the wroth of their own solicitor. Also note that all the information on the years of membership has been removed from that list.

All the press reports I saw stated that a 2007 membership list of over 12,000 names had been published, and therefore by implication that was our membership numbers. But everyone who has received such a list knows that it includes passed members for 3 or 4 years after their membership has lapsed. If the point was to get at Griffin why remove that information, it simply doesn’t make sense does it? And why release it now at a point that helps Griffin?

Consider the following facts:

Neither Sadie nor Kenny had anything to gain by this action, but as sure as hell Griffin did.

1. He can go to the membership and say: 'look folks I was right to spend all this money taking those Rebels to court, even though 'we' lost, because this would have been far worse if I hadn't'.

2. He can try to persuade the court that there has been a blatant breach of a court injunction by the defendants

3. He gets a large input of sympathy donations and some excellent publicity as well.

4. The public are put off joining the party, in case names are leaked again, but will vote for us again in many cases out of sympathy and fair play. ie. it increases his chance of winning 'his' EU seat next May.

5.The party membership stays at a level he can easily control, ie. around the current 6-7000 mark.

So who has the most to gain by this leak, work it out for yourselves, I have.

Exactly, but Griffin uses the same propaganda as Hitler

"the principle— which is quite true in itself — that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily,"

Thank anonymous -
"asking simple questions that nationalist sheep ignore" - does indeed get one branded red/extremist!

A chap recently described the party membership level to me as as "A bath with the taps on, but the plug left out"

Many people "see through" the establishment and join up ,after a year or two they "$ee through" the party - and give up.

Its not rocket science

How is all this ever going to be proved?

We have our suspicions, backed up by circumstances and argument, but come last that is not proof.

Is there an IT expert out there who can trace the leak, trace the IP address code etc and show not only from where an email was sent, but from which computer and exactly when?

Also, can it be shown that an email was NOT sent from a certain computer?

A combination of factors, rather than just one, is probably needed to prove that SD was not involved.

This effort would be so well worthwhile if successful. Griffin's credibility with the courts would be totally destroyed. Whether he had any credibility left with the BP members would then be irrelevant: Griffin would probably go to jail for contempt, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, etc etc AND would be totally bankripted personally by the inevitable civil suit fron SD.

What is the current position? Has Sadie Graham been released - bailed to return etc or?

Anonymous said...

Just because someone is arrested doesnt mean they are guilty, nor that they will even be charged with any offence. As 12, or was it 13, people in Liverpool shows.

The BNP are a bit quick off the mark here, remember - innocent till proven guilty.

Time will tell.

Lee Barnes forgets that , in contradistinction to himself, some people have professional jobs to hold down.

If we could all go 'on the sick' whilst seeming to have the energy to mount 'ceaseless activity' from a council provided house it would be a different matter.

Is Barnes the only Griffinite who is on incapacity?

Keep rattling that Kent twat's cage! He exploded with uncontrollable rage which caused the BNP a lot of embarrasment on Radio 4 when he ranted against Melanie Philips so he will rage against anyone he thinks is having a go at him. He will explode once too often and many will hope it will bring on a fatal heart attack or he rages against a 18 stone negro who beats the crap out of him.

But wait a minute.....isnt there a documented report that some very nice Christian gentleman of African origin took exception to the "sinful act" that "Lily" (his pet name) Lee Barnes was conducting with his boyfriend in the grounds of Kent Polytechnic back in 1999 - OK so they were just holding hands but that was enough for the outraged Kenyan Christian who takes the word of the Bible very seriously to confront them and make his case ...er...very forcefully. Come on Lily old girl tell us what you did next? Did you really poo your pants (as one of your former classmates claims) or did you try and charm the enraged and very muscular African with your enviable diplomatic skills?

As you are reading this and still glowing with pride at being invited onto a Radio 4 chat show perhaps you could enlighten us here. After all this blog gets somthing like 1000 times more readers every day than your pretentious drivel. If you dont answer we'll take that as a "no comment" answer and we can make our own assumptions.

This poncey leftist agitator and disrupter Barnes declared he was a victim of racism and so began his association with the BNP.

Like a flea on the back of a rat he is the worst of scum.

"Rocket man's fury over BNP link
Deborah Haile
21/11/2008

SPACE expert Steve Bennett has vehemently denied having links with the far-right British National Party after his name appeared on a leaked list of members.

The rocket engineer was shocked to learn that his details were on the list published on the internet this week.

He believes his name and an old address were noted down by the party after he made a complaint in 2002 over an article in the BNP magazine.

The magazine article described the work of his firm Starchaser Industries and his attempts to build a rocket to take a person into space. It labelled him `a contemporary British hero'.

But he was unhappy at being associated with the magazine - and complained. Steve, 44, a research fellow at Salford University, received an apology and an acknowledgement in the magazine that he and Starchaser Industries have no links with the party.

Steve believes that as a result of the correspondence between his solicitor and the BNP, his name and an old home address have ended up on the leaked list.

The scientist said he is `absolutely not' a member of the BNP. He has already sought legal advice on what action he can take. He said: "I shouldn't have been on the list and I am angry about that. We are going to try to sort it out - but I don't know what can be done."
