It's high time to make the BNP illegal, as this is pure incitement to genocide and racist murder.

Film shows Sieg Heil salutes and neo-Nazi singalongs
WITH just hours to go before the start of voting in the General Election, the Yorkshire Evening Post today puts the spotlight on one party whose extremist nature sets it apart from the rest – the British National Party. The BNP puts itself forward as a respectable party. It is not, and the YEP today tears away the BNP's cloak of respectability to reveal an extremist organisation riddled with convicted racists, Hitler admirers and criminals. The BNP is standing 112 candidates in tomorrow's general election, 36 of them in Yorkshire. It is contesting seats in Leeds, where for the last two years the voters have firmly rejected the BNP's message of hate. Our reports are intended simply to inform our readers, before they decide who to support in tomorrow's general election.
THE British National Party presents itself to the public as an acceptable political party with a different agenda.
The shaven heads and Doc Marten's boots have in the main been abandoned in favour of suits and respectability.
But in private its leading members present a very different picture.
The Yorkshire Evening Post has obtained film of the BNP at leisure in which its members and supporters sing neo-Nazi songs, praise the leadership of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich, and give Sieg Heil salutes accompanied by shouts of "Auschwitz!"
The film was made at a BNP celebration in Scotland.
As part of the celebration the BNP set fire to a Pagan cross – traditionally burned by Nazis at Volk festivals – whooping and throwing petrol onto the flames.
Two BNP security guards stand at the door of the building and give Nazi Sieg Heil salutes.
On the door to the building is a poster bearing the silhouette of a black man with a diagonal line drawn through it – meaning no entry to black people.
Inside the party is in full swing. A guitarist/singer is entertaining. First he sings a song well-known in neo-Nazi circles – The Future Belongs to Us.
Further songs include one which praises Rudolph Hess, Deputy Fuhrer of Nazi Germany, who flew to Britain during the Second World War, allegedly to sue for a peace settlement. The war-time government of Winston Churchill refused to negotiate, and Hess was imprisoned for the rest of his life.
The song refers to the "Brothers' War" – the modern-day neo-Nazis' way of describing the Second World War, which in their warped view should not have been fought between Britain and Germany because of the two countries' common Aryan racial roots.
A further song is a re-write of the Kenny Rogers 1969 chart hit "Ruby, don't take your love to town," except that the words have been changed to "Nigger, get the **** out of my town." The dozen or so BNP supporters at the party laugh and applaud the song.
Those present include small children.
The film closes with another shot of the two security men outside the building. They both give a Sieg Heil salute and shout the word "Auschwitz" – the name of the most notorious Nazi concentration camp in Poland, part of which today is preserved as a memorial to the six million Jews and millions of Russians, Poles, Communists, pacifists, trades unionists, gypsies, homosexuals and other "sub-humans" or "anti-socials" murdered by the Nazis.
The film was made by one of the BNP members present at the party. Several copies were made, one of which was leaked to anti-racism campaigners. The leak caused a furious row in the highest echelons of the BNP.
BNP rife with criminal convictions
THE BRITISH National Party is littered with criminals with convictions ranging from possessing explosives to violence.
Many of its key organisers past and present have criminal convictions. The convictions go beyond the incitement to race hatred which are predictable among the organisers of a party whose very existence is based on the philosophy of racial supremacy. Many also have histories of violence.
Tony Lecomber, who is BNP Group Development Organiser, has two convictions for criminal damage in the 1980s. In 1985 he was convicted on five counts for offences under the Explosives Act and in 1991 he was sentenced to three years' imprisonment for an attack on a Jewish teacher.
He has been involved in fascist politics since the early eighties, is an ex-member of the National Front and the New National Front and an inaugural member of the BNP.
Warren Bennett, who is head of the BNP's Department of Security, was in 1990 convicted for public disorder.
He was among 58 Scottish supporters prevented from attending the Scotland match with Norway in Bordeaux, France during the 1998 World Cup. Scottish and French police feared they would commit violence. The group had been followed by police from Spain.
Between 1992 and 1995 he attended several events staged by Combat 18, the openly violent and neo-Nazi group, including protection of meetings held by Holocaust-denier David Irving in 1992 and Loyalist parades in 1995. The 18 in Combat 18 stands for AH, the initials of Adolf Hitler.
Stephen Belshaw, former regional organiser for the East Midlands was in 1993 convicted of violent disorder for an attack on a Mansfield solicitor.
He was active in Combat 18 in 1992 and 1993.
Colin Smith, former regional organiser for South East London, has multiple convictions, including possession of an offensive weapon, driving whilst disqualified, and possession of a controlled drug. He has been involved in far right politics since the early 1980s. An ex-member of the openly Nazi British Movement, he joined the BNP in the early 1990s.
In 1981 he was photographed wearing a British Movement jacket with a swastika armband at a British Movement rally.
