On previous episodes of membership list leaks...take a look at Notes from the Borderland
Review of Borderland here which is worth a look if you want to get beyond mainstream media spin and fascist responses when it comes to stolen list...this is a story that has hit the news several times before.
The entire British National Party membership list has been published on line, no I am not giving you the link, although I had a glance at the document...
Lots of discussion on the web, and members of the far right party running for cover.
Indymedia seem to been first in on the act...
I am not sure what this is about, an internal feud, incompetence, state infiltration, disgruntled cleaning lads, pissed off tea girls.
I know that the secret state is keen to build up these kind of lists.
False or doctored lists might occur...why not make up some names to cause chaos?
There have been cases of false lists, used to wind up tension between left and right.
I would certainly not trust any such list....in the Green Party we had a little legal battle a couple of months back to reject release of membership details.
Some may laugh when a far right group has its membership list published but publishing names and addresses on the internet is unethical as far as I am concerned.
Any organisation should take that the people with access to membership data are limited and vetted with care...can you imagine if some stole the Green Party list.
