The neo-fascist British National Party was thrown into panic in the last 24 hours as someone posted their entire membership database to a blogspot account. The detailed members list includes personal details, jobs, contact numbers, emails, even hobbies! Speculation is that splitters within the group posted the list, but no one knows for certain. This is especially bad news for British public employees, as many are legally barred from membership in what is an avowedly racist organization. The list of ten thousand names includes teachers, doctors, company directors cops, and a BBC radio DJ. A quick count reveals 33 members with US addresses, seven of which are in New York (five in NYC).

Laughs are to be had by the barrelful at “nationalist” websites and blogs, as members panic at the prospect of being outed as nazis!
