BNP leak suspect stood in Basildon election

A man who has been arrested on suspicion of leaking details of thousands of British National Party members comes from south Essex.

Matthew Single, 36, who has twice stood for Basildon Council on behalf of the British National Party, was one of two people arrested in connection with the release last month of a confidential list containing details of more than 10,000 party members. The list contained names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of members, and in some instances even their ages, hobbies and professions. Police were forced to warn vigilantes not to take the law into their hands and attack known members following its publication.

Single, who previously lived in Tallow Gate, South Woodham Ferrers, and his girlfriend, Sadie Graham, have since been released on bail without charge by Dyfed Powys Police, in West Wales, pending further investigation.

Police spokeswoman Sian George said: “Dyfed Powys Police can confirm that two people have been interviewed, in conjunction with alleged criminal offences under the Data Protection Act, relating to the complaint from the BNP about the release of their party membership list. The two people were arrested in the Nottinghamshire area on Thursday evening.”

The Echo revealed a year ago that Single, now of Brinsley, Nottinghamshire, had been recruited as one of BNP boss Nick Griffin’s top security men. However, he has since been sacked from the party alongside girlfriend Miss Graham, a councillor in Broxtowe, Nottinghamshire, with whom he has been living.

Len Heather, BNP organisor for Basildon, Billericay, and Wickford, said: “We believe the Labour Party was ultimately behind all of this, along with the left wing unions, who are dedicated to undermining us.”

Single was arrested earlier this year following an armed police search at the home of his Miss Graham, in Brinsley. Officers, who were searching for firearms following a tip-off, seized a canister thought to contain a noxious substance, plus radios, body armour vests, scanners and other equipment. Single was sentenced, at Nottingham Crown Court in May this year, to 12 months community service for possession of a weapon for the discharge of noxious liquid.

"Officers, who were searching for firearms following a tip-off"

This would be the tip-off earlier this year that everyone knows was carefully arranged by Arthur Kemp?

Griffin REALLY has his claws out for Sadie Graham and Matt Single,
doesn't he. I wonder what he'll try next. Although, come to think of it, wasn't he saying the release of the list was orchestrated by the Labour Cabinet?

Curious said...

I thought his name was SingleTON?

Who gives a fuck for Single and Graham, there is so much sympathy for them on here you would think they were working for UAF all along. I thought they were Nazi scum, or have I got it wrong?

Didn't I read somewhere that these two had got married?

They are nazi scum but there's no reason people shouldn't be sympathetic to the shit thrown down on them by their erstwhile glorious leader. Not that I've noticed any undue sympathy for them here, just proper reporting of the current situation as and when developments occur.

The BNP sounds more like a private militia every day.

Isn't Gri££in reported as saying this? Pathetic little man repeating the crap that his master spouts.

I see Wingfield is attacking the rebels, I wonder how much of a pay rise this has earned him and his wife?

Anonymous said...

Even if it was him, why don't the press ever write why people do it? They all kiss Griffins arse instead of exposing him.

Leftfield not Wingfield said...

No one reads Wingfield's boring little blog, he is another crony licking Gri££ins arse despite over a decade when they were having a major handbag fight. If anyone knows about causing splits and splinters in the far right its Wingers himself. Now where did he get his wife from again. Perhaps watchers of the NF can refresh the blog readers memory about some geezer called Roger and his former girlfriend Tina?

No - Darby you mean or are there two State operatives in Griffin's inner circle?......uhhhmmm!

Some of the people around Griffin's security are total scum, drug users and convicted dealers and bruisers. Would not surprise me to hear of a very rough "doing over" or even attempted murder. Griffin has to pay for security these days - total scum from Yorkshire mostly who dont even know what the BNP is about and dont care as long as they are getting their beer money. No more political soldiers just head-screwed muscled scum from estates around Leeds and Huddersfield.

What happened to the presumption of innocence even proven guilty? Griffin wouldnt know about that as the tossr is a paranoid, fascist headcase who believes he has the hand of history on his shoulder. Hand of Her Majesty's finest more like!

@ Leftfield not Wingfield

You'll be referring to Roger Denny the pot-smoking manic depressive, right? The failed ex-bookie Wingfield did well to overcome stiff competition (in more ways than one!) from Tom Acton and Steve Brady to win the heart of his comrade's wife.

Are he BNP short on females? There seems to be a lot of swopping of spouses and squabbles over the less than attractive bunch of females that are in the party?

Just asking...........

The NF certainly was, hence Tintin being such a popular little "lady".

Personally I preferred her mum...

matt single is a Nazi of the worst kind..arrogant, self opinionated, totally crap at his job in the BNP, that is why he ws sacked, rather than anything else....he is a born liar, and is welcome to Grahame, who really has no use on this planet what so ever.
good riddence to both of them, and the more Nazi's that go the better
