Subject: The new leaked BNP membership list
From: Vic Smith
Date: 21 Oct 09 - 06:05 AM

On Page 7 of today's The Guardian under an article headlined "Party membership spreads beyond Essex, East Midlands and Pennines." one section reads:-

There are personal revelations, such as the fact that one activist is "a semi-professional multi-musician (traditional/British folk)......

Any ideas of who this is? I'm sure a lot of people would like to know and to react according.

Can't imagine who Vic.
There was a singer who was a regular performer at Sidmouth, who became a BNP candidate for Chippenham in the last local elections. But, that was earlier this year, and has been well publicised. (In fact it was probably the catylist for FaF).
As far as I know, she doesn't play an instrument, so it's unlikely to be her.
Am struggling to think who it could be?
Maybe the Guardian should name names?

Yes. I would really like to know.

Just as much as I'd like to know their sexual preferences, their religeon, their choice of football team and their favourite colour.
There ought to be a list of performers birth signs and astral projections too.
And while we are at it, how about donations to charity. Which causes do these people support?
I do hope its not a blinking dogs home - I much prefer cats.
Where do they do their shopping? Are they a Tesco user or do they lurk in the aisles of Morrison?

We should be told!!!

Seriously - I cant sleep.

Actually, I didn't expect it to be so easy to find out..... the radio had said this morning that the site had crashed as so many people were looking at it yesterday but now at http://wikileaks.org/leak/bnp-membership-list.txt it includes:-

Mr
Mark
Stevens

Merstham

markyemorris@hotmail.com
Activist
BSc (Hons) Media Production. HND Moving Image/Photography. Semi-professional multi musician (traditional/British folk). Pagan. Classic motorcycle enthusiast. Huntsman


I met someone calling themselves "Mark Ye Morris" at Tenterden Folk Festival a few years ago and he subsequently sent me a couple of CDs for review. However, the quality was not there so they never reached print. I'm glad now that they didn't.

Yes, it's the same guy. He seems to belong to a side called Wild Hunt Bedlam Morris, who have been to Rochester Sweeps, Broadstairs and Tenterden festivals this year, and will shortly be taking part in the Dance Around the World festival at Cecil Sharp House.

Given the BNP's stated aim of infiltrating English folk activities, it would be interesting to know whether the side is either aware of his activities as a BNP activist and/or endorses them.

An internet self-description of him says that his activities include


. . . . . dancing or playing melodeon with the Wild Hunt, playing the Fool, or just being invisible: which role you see him in depends on several factors, all which are still mysterious!

Perhaps he could just use his powers to make himself invisible, then forget how to manifest himself again.

BS, why?
This is an illustration of how the BNP is pursuing its stated aim of subverting English traditional music for its own ends, and thus needs to be publicised and exposed.
I would, however, point out the bleedin' obvious: just because certain misguided individuals appear to share the same musical tastes as you for whatever reason, this does not automatically render them nice people.

He gets an honourable mention in Nick Griffin's own blog:
After the interview we head off to a local meeting near Basingstoke. This is, by old rights, prime Tory and more recently UKIP territory, but Roger and his team are making big inroads. Around 100 people pack the function room of a centuries'-old local pub. A couple of local journalists have been invited (we get very fair write-ups subsequently) and all goes well. The landlord is quoted as saying we weren't what he expected (in a good way!) After the meeting one of our Surrey characters, 'Mark ye Morris' gets out his squeezebox and rattles off a few traditional tunes. I'm told that a mobile video of him and me doing "The Man Who Waters The Workers' Beer" will go up on You-tube. The growth of this instant, do-it-yourself media has to be this year's technological surprise and, yet again, shows new technologies undermining old monopolies.

No, we don't need a witch hunt, but the story and its publication in the Grauniad will create in some people's minds a false connection between folk music and fascism. That why we need Folk Against Fascism - to counteract that kind of misleading publicity.

As a person with considerable pagan sympathies myself, I find this news disturbing for other reasons. I wonder if there's a Pagans agaist Fascism group - ah.. a quick Google search suggests there is, but it's German...

He doesn't call himself a singer, so his folk music activities may be limited to playing for Wild Hunt and maybe a few tune sessions or a ceilidh band.

I would reiterate that this is the same person who kept posting disruptive, pro-BNP messages on the Facebook FAF site. When these messages were removed (as the page did not exist as a platform for BNP apologists but as a place for people with similar concerns to share information) he posted increasingly goading messages in places where they could not be removed. I eventially disabled the Wall pretty much because of him. Which was probably his intention, to be honest, because the BNP seem to think theirs is the only free speech that matters, and seek to subvert and stifle any oppposing voices whenever they can.

He is also not simply listed on the leaked membership roll as a member of the BNP - he is listed as an activist. There is a significant difference. I wonder whether his "activism" includes trying to co-opt/subvert folk music and dance.

These are the reasons he interests me.

Ruth, I did send a message to the Wild Hunt squire about Stevens' offensive posts, but it was ignored.

I know of another facebook poster, too, who pointed out that some of Stevens facebook posts were not in the best traditions of folk music.

I do think that this is very relevant to folk music and dance. Sides should be aware that if they invite the Wild Hunt to stands, Stevens may well try to make his noxious propaganda there.

If you download the entire membership list (see the link in the fourth posting) and then search it for "Folk" then you will find three other members - one who calls himself an activist - who give folk song amongst their "hobbies and interests". Mind you only a small minority of those listed actually state their "hobbies and interests".

Incidently, I don't think that this is a witch hunt. I don't give a damn about the star signs, shopping habits or football interests of other people, but when people who say they are interested in the music that I love and at the same time are members of a white supremist organisation, then I am interested in knowing who they are as I don't want the music that I love associated with such a cause.

From my point of view, very nice to know that I don't know socially or otherwise any of members listed in localities that I know. Would have caused some dismay to see the name of anyone I knew.

Unsurprising that they seem to mostly live in areas I'd regard as a tad less than desirable.

    I realize some of you would like to be all-BNP, all the time. Some would probably like to be all-antiabortion, all the time. Or all-antireligion, all the time. Or, how about all-rapture, all the time? Whatever the case, we allow only one active thread per subject; so I closed the other two active BNP threads since this one seems to be the current most popular one. This gives you all the advantage of not having to post the same message in three different threads.

    Oh, and just a reminder that we don't allow anonymous posts or posts from people with multiple identities. We allow identified posters to post quite freely and with little review or control, since we've found that the normal social pressures of a community make most people behave in a reasonably civil manner. Our biggest problems are people who hide behind anonymity, so we review all Guest posts and control them quite strictly. In controversial subjects like BNP discussions, we tend to delete most messages where the identity of the poster is questionable or the content of the message is troublesome. If that's a problem or if you feel a message was deleted by mistake, send me a personal message or e-mail to request that a message be undeleted.
    Better yet, register as a member and be sure to put your real name and e-mail address on the membership form (you're free to use a nickname or pseudonym as your posting name). Questionable memberships will be verified by e-mail, and will be deleted if they are found to be fraudulent.
    Thanks.
