Black And White

An interesting piece of information comes from the Radio Merseyside phone-in. As we know, whenever the fact that the BNP does not allow black or Asian people to be members is raised, they counter with the mantra that there are groups like the Black Police Association. Whilst this has long been dismissed as a dishonest comparison - the BPA is a pressure group rather than a political party seeking to gain power - it was fascinating to learn that 40% of the membership of the Merseyside BPA is white. As the MBPA site states:

  • Membership is open to all police officers and police staff of any rank and grade, irrespective of ethnic origin.
Now before the BNP trolls come on, I'm aware that associate membership is open to white officers and staff rather than full membership, but this still provides an illuminating insight into how the BNP seek to use flawed arguments to justify their racist constitution.

Eric, not sure if you read Harry's Place. I've been a part of the writing team for a while now and my anti-BNP stuff can be found in the anti-fascism archive. Two recent posts might interest you: 'The BNP is the same old gang' and 'On the BNP's "pro-Israel" turn'.

Glad to see you're keeping up the good work!

Regards,

Edmund

Yes. I saw the nod on your closing down piece! I should update the links now. Yes, often go over there as there is a lot of debate. I'm getting bogged down with this stuff (which is why I put beer and photos on for a change!)
All the best, Edmund.

Anon:
Your last post has been removed for it is not a comment in any shape or form. it seems to be similar to the Zionist conspiracy theories you spam the BNP site with. This site will allow free sdpeech but is not a recepticle for copy and paste articles. If anyone wants to check out the story Anon refers to it can be found at http://www.thelocal.de/national/20090225-17661.html

Also, your other comments are barely literate. Perhaps you can ask an adult to check your grammar and coherency before posting!
Quite what the post about Radio Merseyside means is anyone's guess.

Therefore unless you explain - in English - what you are rambling on about within 24 hrs - that post will be removed. Furthermore in order to differentiate between various posters, I expect you to at least use a name when posting. Failure to do so will result in your posts being deleted. Then you can cry about freedom of speech etc.

THE RACIST B.P.A.

Listen, dickhead, the BNP has a whites only membership policy. Whites are the majority in Britain - 93% - so they don't need a fucking association representing them. Therefore, the BNP is clearly a racist organisation, set up to oppose 7% of the population. Black people are a small minority, and that's why there are groups dedicated to looking out for them. If it weren't for people with idiotic racist views like yours there never would have been a BPA.
