UK: BNP Wants Police Probe After Membership List Published

Gavin Cordon writes on The Independent UK:

The far-right British National Party has demanded a police investigation after a full list of party members was posted on the internet.

The party said in a statement posted on its website that the list with the names, addresses and contact details of more than 12,000 individuals was "essentially genuine".

The list, which includes details of the jobs and in some cases the hobbies and qualifications of the members, claims to include former police officers as well as members of the armed forces.

BNP leader Nick Griffin said: "We'll be asking the police to investigate. It's a list which is now just over a year old.

"Having spent a lot of money to secure our members' privacy we are disappointed that it's been breached."
