In BNP affair, Labor Government bares its teeth
Nick Griffin has since backed off the claim that it was a former senior employee who leaked the list. He’s now blaming it on Labour. The Times reports:
Within a couple of hours, however, the BNP appeared to be backing off from accusing its former employee, and turning its sights on the Labour Party.
Either way, hopefully the leaker is discovered.
It is looking increasingly likely that this is the work of Labour Party supporters,” said Simon Darby, the party spokesman. “If they have not protected their IP [internet service provider address] properly, there will be an electronic trail leading back to the culprit.”
I also enjoyed this part of article:
Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, showed little sympathy over the leak. She told Sky News: “It probably says something about the BNP that people don’t want to have it known that they are a member.”
Smith’s Labour party is seeking to pass a bill that would make it legal for trade unions to bar members of the BNP, and she has the chutzpah to insinuate that people don’t want their BNP membership known because it is something shameful, conveniently “forgetting” the fact that the group is being legislated against, members are actively discriminated against in the workplace, as well as being subject to threats from leftist thugs.
What the Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said shows the spirit of the true totalitarian. Your garden variety dictator just oppresses you and takes away your freedom. The true totalitarian mockingly states that your fear that he will oppress you and take away your freedom proves that you have a guilty conscience and thus that you deserve to be oppressed and have your freedom taken away.
