The BNP's very own Julie Andrews

Every so often the BNP comes by that rarity, a presentable and articulate person it believes it can use to explode the "myth" that the party is filled to the gunnels with racist bigots sporting shaven heads and unfortunate tattoos.

If that person is an attractive woman with no apparent blemishes on her character, so much the better.

Donna Bailey (left) is undeniably presentable, and, so far as we can tell, has never set a foot wrong in her life. Since moving to Upper Beeding in West Sussex she has thrown herself into community activities with some gusto and has won praise from all and sundry for her commitment and effort.

Which would be all well and good if only Donna Bailey were not simultaneously demonstrating the same commitment and effort on behalf of the racist British National Party.

Donna's fame has spread far and wide, and today we find her the subject of a two-page Daily Mail spread in an article that seems to be stuck somewhere between admiration and deep unease.

The first half of "Meet the BNP's blonde bombshell" must count as relatively good publicity for a party more usually in the headlines for its criminality and corruption. Our favourite bigot, the toad-like Green Arrow, thought the article marvellous: "An excellent article that shows the True Brits that we are them and they are us despite the reporters attempt at making it a smear."

By "a smear" the fearless keyboard warrior means that in the interests of balance the Daily Mail felt bound to report the feelings of those not so enamoured of the blonde goddess:

"One disappointing bit in the story is the reaction of her neighbour James Palmer who said he was the 'Neighbour of the Beast' and went on to say; 'I don't think there should be a place for it in a village like this.'

"A stupid man who does not care what happens to the rest of the country so long as his tiny part of it does not change. If he wants to keep his place in the Sun he should start supporting Donna and the British National Party because they are the only one's who really care."

(Aprostrophe placement/lack of (c) BNP)

Of course, in BNP-land only good things must be reported about Britain's most dishonest party. Anything else is only and ever a "smear" concocted by Gerry Gable, the SIS, UAF, the Daily Mirror, the World Jewish Conspiracy, Mao Tse-Tung and Jack the Ripper.

Donna first thought of joining the Tories: "But I had a look on the website and, you know, it just didn't talk to me. I wasn't particularly impressed by Cameron, and I really objected to the Tories' policy on Europe.

"So then I looked at the BNP website."

As you do.

"I thought probably exactly the same of the BNP as you do. I thought, if this is all racist, offensive stuff then I am switching right off. But it wasn't. It was all perfectly sensible. I found myself agreeing with everything - especially the immigration stuff."

Well, yes, Donna - "the immigration stuff" is very difficult to avoid on the BNP website. As is the BNP's overarching obsession with that one subject. Take "the immigration stuff" away and you could put the BNP's remaining policies on the back of a postage stamp (if the BNP has one left over after all the expulsion letters of late).

Presumably, as she sat wide-eyed in front of her PC's monitor, Donna never noticed the barely disguised racism festering on virtually every page, or worked out the poisonous intention behind the endless parade of stories of the "black crime" and "more immigrants - we're doomed" species that are its stock-in-trade.

And also - perhaps charitably - we'll presume that Donna refrained from visiting the numerous websites of the BNP's Blog Battalion, where open racism and complete contempt for other peoples and cultures is all too obvious ("Turnips", "Muzzies", "Mudslimes" "'Groids", Donna?). Or that she has never visited a BNP-infested Internet forum where the tone is somewhere between the toilet and the sewer, and the mental ability to step back a couple of rungs on the evolutionary ladder is a prerequisite to talking on anything like equal terms with them.

According to Donna BNP people are, like her, "quite normal too".

We'll also assume that Donna suffers from some unspecified but mercifully unique condition that blinds her to any awareness of the after-hours activties of so many of her fellow BNP members - you know the kind of thing, trivialities like murder, solicitation to murder, bomb-making, wife-beating, GBH, fraud, attacking Eddy Butler... not to mention the latest additions to the list, such entering members' homes by deception to make off with their property, bugging their private conversations and then pasting them on the Internet.

"It's just the bad press," Donna plaintively tells the Daily Mail, falling back on the stock excuse churned out by every cornered BNP member since first the party came kicking and cursing into the world.

Donna is, as they say, a class act. It's almost as if the BNP has recruited its very own Julie Andrews who comes skipping and singing over the Sussex Downs spreading sweetness and light wherever she goes.

Do we buy it?

Not many, we don't.

According to keen activist and twice BNP candidate Donna, she won't take her politics in to the parish council for which she is seeking election.

Well, she would say that, wouldn't she?

As do her supporters, who are presumably the same who made up the mob Donna led to a meeting of Upper Beeding parish council to demand co-option amid scenes one councillor described as "quite threatening".

The implication is, then, that Donna Bailey will take her seat - if or when that happens - as Donna Bailey, All Round Good Egg, with not a mention of the BNP.

Unfortunately, the BNP - delicately rehashing the Daily Mail article on its website - doesn't see it that way.

They see Donna as "theirs", as do the BNP Blog Brigade, who make no fine distinctions in these matters. She's BNP and she'll be a BNP parish councillor as far as they're concerned, period.

That goes for us too.

We're not about to swallow the idea that Donna Bailey will walk out of a BNP meeting in one frame of mind and take her place at a parish council sitting in another. Not for one minute we're not.

Perhaps over-estimating the powers of a parish councillor to a small degree, BNP website poster Maurice Oatley seems to concur: "Hello Donna, I take my hat off to you someone with bottle, it seems that you`re not prepared to stand by and do nothing while Brown and the rest of his bully boys sell this country down the river,If only there was a few more like you this country would be all the better," (Maurice likes commas).

In a party membership notably dominated by men who polarise into those with thick necks and those who give an appearance of being closely related to weasels, Donna is a striking oddity.

Our reformed friend Atreus tells us that in his day the presence of an attractive woman at BNP events was a cause of much excitement among the thick-necks and the weasel-alikes as so few of them had ever been in close proximity to a real female. It was always form, he tells us, to push such women to the fore at public events "to kid the world along as to just how 'normal' we were".

Echoing this, a poster on the BNP's website says: "I’ve been saying for years that if we could only recruit more good looking, intelligent women to the party, it would be transformed."

Awkwardly for chrisM3, who made the observation, intelligent women (whether good looking or not) are generally precluded by the very fact of their intelligence from joining the BNP.

What the BNP is more likely to end up with is this:

The frightening Lynne Mozar, of BNP Wives fame, whose demented performance brought forth as splendid a lesson in bigotry as has ever graced our television screens.

Quoth Mozar: "That's a legal term for them", in relation to the racist term for Pakistanis, adding that she "sometimes" uses the racist term for black people - "and why not?" Added to which was the far from lithe Mozar's summation of another woman as a "fat slag" who ought to wear a burqua.

We also had a female BNP friend of Mozar (talking to a woman in the street and pointing at a sign with a mosque on it): "You wouldn't like one of these around here would ya?"

Person in the street: "It doesn't bother me."

Female BNP activist (muttering): "It will do if one of them bleedin' rapes your daughter."

Normal non-racist people just like you, eh, Donna?

I pissed myself at that!

Is this article one of DG's or is it from somewhere else? I like the style.

Sorry to hijack this Denise. I've had a few and a few more, but I thought I'd slipped into an alternate reality when I went to Nrothwest Nazis and read this

Just you wait a few months, and she'll be worshipping Odin, and calling herself "Thor's Bitch", or something as inane. She won't be able to keep out of griffin's fiscally-lucrative norse god-worshipping cult for long.

Mark "wee willy winkler" Collett said...

The UAF ought to offer a cash prize for the first person to spot her on "white pride" (i.e., white supremacist website Scumponce. Can't be long before she's lusting over tales of the Ku Klux Klan lynching people from trees, and kidding herself that the Holocaust didn't happen.

Unless Mark "Gary Glitter" Collett scares away before this can happen by planting sick perverted porn on her hack-friendly BNP computer.

How come the mainstream media are concerned about the beauty treatments used by a presentable yet nobody parish councillor, while ignoring the claims of paedophilia, fraud, intimidation, theats, theft, and financial mismanagement of the Nick Griffin cabal?

Does the tabloids window dressing of the Griffinite far right not extend to the rebels? Sadie looks equally as presentable as this parish pump nobody.

This must be because Griffin is a nark.

Corporal Pike said...

I see on their blog, the Northwest Nationalists are planning to hijacking Veterans Day in Blackpool in a rather Griffinite manner, which is ironic as most war vets were fighting the very nazis that british so-called nationalists revere.

Hopefully we can knock the wheels off their makeshift Dads Army fascist bandwagon.

warning from history said...

Just going back to the Northwest Nationalists site, the anti-Semitism is getting so extreme, it's sickening: -


So much for the rebels being moderates.

Moderates my arse.

They're sodding hardliners every bit as much as Mark Collett. Anti-fascists must realise this.

Sanctuary said...

I must agree with those who are asking, why is the BNP getting this level of coverage all of a sudden? This woman has achieved absolutely nothing, nobody has heard of this village, yet it merits a two page article.

Watch out though, the BNP are clearly manufacturing their own Stepford Wives collections. At least they've improved their production process from the hideous hags of the BNP Wives. Guess this blonde, blue-eyed babe has 'Made in South Africa' stamped somewhere.

BNP unmasked as nazi party:


This recently shot DVD reveals the true nature of the BNP - in their own words. It shows them behind closed doors when they think the public are not watching. It proves that they are still nazis.

The sign on the door says No Blacks. Inside, BNP members sing racist and pro-Nazi songs. They glorify the Holocaust, and call for blacks to be killed. They give nazi salutes as they chant the names of Hitler's henchmen.

This is the real face of the BNP -- the one that they try to hide from voters.

One of the people giving a Nazi salute is Scott McLean, the deputy leader of the BNP. Others include BNP organisers and minders for party leader Nick Griffin.

The BNP say they have changed. This DVD proves they are the same Nazis they always were.

Callum said...

I was hoping we'd get something like this to put a spoke in all their backslapping. Puts DB in perspective. She must be blind deaf and dumb.

Somebody asked about a forum, any chance?

Callum said...

Just adding that some of the comments here seem to me designed to get LUAF in trouble.

iliacus said...

May I offer two observations:

a) can I assume that someone from the anti-fascist movement will be sending this lady a dossier of information regarding the reality of the BNP?

b) in my experience BNP support comes from two (main) areas:
- the far-right racist hardliners (and there's not much you can do with them except washing thoroughly after encountering them!)
- people who have genuine concerns about the changes they see around them, feel threatened by those changes, and do not view the other parties as genuinely addressing those concerns.

Being generous to this lady perhaps she is of the latter category, and just needs her eyes opening to the truth about the BNP.

My memory is usually pretty good for faces and im pretty sure this woman was on the scene in Baring & Dagenham several years ago when the nazis first started their drive to get their people elected to the Council.

Anonymous said...

No, it was not Donna Bailey in Barking and Dagenham - the lady you are thinking of is a 'Lynn'- cockney in her 40s with dyed blonde hair and a drink problem. Dresses like an elderly prostitute. Big difference between her and Donna Bailey.

Anonymous said...

anon thank you for setting my memory straight re the physical difference between Bailey and the woman described in B & D other than that i cannot see the "big difference" you mention. One dresses like a prostitute and another is prepared to prostitute herself for a nazi party.

Well, this Donna Bailey is a nasty little racist/fascist BNP troll. I just read her manifesto from when she stood as the nazi BNP candidate for the District Council Holbrook West by-election. It is full of racism, lies and half-truths!


1)Here is an example of Donna Bailey’s BNP lies:

“Free medical treatment is the birthright of British people only, not foreigners who have never paid into the system”.

- What rubbish!! My wife is a Pakistani citizen working in the financial sector in London. She’s a top-rate taxpayer (i.e. pays 40% income tax) and pays hundreds of pounds in National Insurance (NI) contributions per month towards funding the NHS/free medical treatment. But, because my wife is on a spouse visa she is banned by law from using NHS services and taking benefits (if needed)!! She pays for it, but can’t use what she pays for!!! It looks like my wife funds nazi BNP trolls like Donna Bailey to have free medical treatment!

2) Here’s an example of pure BNP hate racism in Donna Bailey’s by-election manifesto:

“The BNP demands zero tolerance for travellers and their illicit anti-social activities”

- So, ‘zero tolerance’ for travellers purely because they are travellers? Unbelievable. Further, Donna Bailey and her BNP hate policies make the direct linkage (without any evidence) between ‘travellers’ and ‘illicit anti-social activities’! (one other point: isn’t the use of ‘illicit’ in the BNP statement, ‘illicit anti-social activities’, just a tad oxymoronic? Donna Bailey and the BNP seem to be implying that there somehow exist ‘legitimate anti-social activities’ as opposed to ‘illicit anti-social activities’. I guess it’s the BNP which carry out the former!).

3) Another Donna Bailey/BNP statement:

“once a British worker is found then the foreign worker will be returned to place of origin”.

- Well, here the BNP and Donna Bailey are advocating forced repatriation. This is despite the nazi BNP claiming that they only believe in ‘voluntary repatriation’ (or, is ‘voluntary’ a quaint BNP euphemism for ‘forced’. You never know with your fascist BNP types, they’re quite unpredictable).

I'm sick of the BNP, they just lie and spin. I feel sorry for that village in which Donna Bailey is standing in.

@ Callum

One or two people have asked about a forum in the past. We do have something hanging around that could be adapted, but there would have to be support for it, added to which it would require trusted extra hands to man it 24/7.

Rah said...

added to which it would require trusted extra hands to man it 24/7.

I would volunteer but I'd be biased against letting right winger morons post on it...

Which is why you'd need 24/7 moderation and admin user approval.

molly said...

This is one stupid and selfish mother. Obviously coming from London she has no idea what village life is all about. On this one even if she wins she looses.

She may be pushy and strong, but, are her children?

Believe me when the elders of a village decide you are in the wrong there are no holes barred.

Flushed said...

A forum would be a good idea. Think about it LUAF.

"Believe me when the elders of a village decide you are in the wrong there are no holes barred."

No HOLDS barred, possibly.

Mmm! Ex East London ? Seems to me that a little research should prove this one.
