The entire membership list of the British National party has been posted on the internet, identifying thousands of people as secret supporters of the far right and exposing many to the risk of dismissal from work, disciplinary action or vilification.

Last night the BNP's spokesman Simon Darby said the police had been called in to investigate the data security breach. Describing the posting as "malevolent and spiteful" he said: "This isn't a question of us mislaying the information, this is theft."

Other notes against the names of individuals include: "Discretion requested (employment concerns), government employee, IT consultant" and "activist (discretion requested), teacher (secondary school)".

The only correct response is cry me a river, you Nazi shitbags.

The Register's latest article on it is also interesting, since it refutes teh suggestion that the list isn't up to date - at least in one case.

Yup. The version I grabbed from Wikileaks contains comments from July of this year.

...or not, given that the list was posted by "a disgruntled member of the party's own leadership." [Guardian article].

Last Beeb report I saw was that members were fearing attacks because their names were on the list...

All I can say, are these the same people that may accidentally be in the area, when attacks on other minorities properties occurred? If so... then my thought are... Paybacks a bitch isn't it?

However I do accept that not all of those ......... are those who do attack others, but I can not feel that there is some justice in this, but also I do worry those that this may allow the BNP to further claim they are victims in this (yeah right!) or cause further problem down the line by people responding, if those people named are attacked.
