BNP's Richard Barnbrook fails to appear at misconduct hearing

Meeting to consider whether Richard Barnbrook brought his office into disrepute is cancelled after he phones panel to tell them he has been signed off work for stress

A meeting to consider whether Richard Barnbrook, one of the most senior elected members of the British National party, had brought his office into disrepute was cut short today after he failed to turn up on stress grounds.

Barnbrook, who is both a London assembly member and sits on Barking and Dagenham council, could be suspended amid charges that he brought his office into disrepute by falsely claiming three murders had taken place over a three-week period in the Barking and Dagenham area.

But the meeting was cut short after Barnbrook telephoned just before his hearing was due to begin to say that he had been signed off for stress for two weeks by his GP. Barnbrook's failure to submit written evidence to the hearing resulted in the panel ruling it would be unfair to continue in his absence.

Today's meeting will be reconvened on either 12 August or 4 September...

Barnbrook off for two weeks because of "stress"

Here is an interesting insight into the modus operandi of the BNP. For those of you who are aware of the BNP’s politics and their use of rumours and falsifications, this story should be of use to you.

Richard Barnbrook, the BNP’s London Assembly member, is off work for two weeks due to stress. Barnbrook was due to face a joint Barking and Dagenham Council and Greater London Authority disciplinary panel and risked a possible suspension because he stands accused of bringing his office into disrepute.

The Guardian reported this morning: “A joint investigation for the Greater London authority and Barking and Dagenham council concluded in May that Barnbrook brought his office and the respective authorities into disrepute after falsely claiming in an interview that three murders had taken place over a three week period in the Barking and Dagenham area.”

The panel was going to announce its decision today.

However, it is said that after consulting with his legal advisor, Lee Barnes, who is also legal director for the BNP, Barnbrook decided not to attend this morning’s hearing, which was due to start at 10.30am. Barnes, according to sources from Barking and Dagenham Council, told Barnbrook that the “make-up” of the panel would not guarantee him a fair hearing.

But before the panel could decide as to whether they should go ahead and make a decision on the case, news came in that Barnbrook was given sick leave due to “stress”. The panel believed that they did not want to add to his medical state and have set aside two dates, August 14th and September 4th 2009, and will announce when they will hold the next panel meeting in due course.

It is not the first time that the BNP have been accused of making up stories to fit their political agenda. In 2001, the BNP came under fire in the BBC documentary “Under the Skin”for Panorama. As a part of the documentary, the BBC investigated an “important part of the British National Party's "community politics" strategy … FAIR - Families Against Immigrant Racism.” (Now disbanded)

The group advertised itself as assisting “white victims of racist violence and harassment and offered legal and counselling advice.”

Dave Hill, the BNP's former East London organiser, was FAIR’s co-ordinator for the capital. To the BBC he said, "There is no mystery, there is no controversy to FAIR, it's just a white rights organisation. We're targeting race hate that is not targeted by other victim support groups."

However, after an undercover investigation it became clear that Hill was encouraging “victims” to exaggerate and lie to the police about “attacks” and “racism”. He also encouraged people to lie to doctors. Hill is caught saying: "This is very important, ...go to your doctor and tell your doctor that you're suffering extreme stress... What he'll do, he'll put you on anti-depressants. You don't have to take them, you can wash them down the toilet. But once you're on medication and you're also suffering racial abuse at your address then you're a priority case..."

Barnbrook’s fabricated tale only proves how despite the cosmetic enhancements to the BNP’s image, what lies beneath is a very ugly and discredited rabble of amateurs dressed up as politicians.

There is nothing British about the BNP

Crap, sorry, my cut and paste was playing funny buggers (please don't let the last post through...)

Just wanted to say, I almost feel bad for the twat even if he is a mad lying racist. Mental Illness is not something I would wish on anyone, and I can fully see how his own stupidity and mendacity has lead to a situation that would be stressful for him to deal with.

That all said, I wouldn't mind him ending up in jail...

Landale said...

I wonder if the medical certificate will ever appear?

Am I a cynic...... No, I've seen it all before!

If he fails to attend any meetings for 6 months though can he not simply be removed? Unfortunately that would probably cheer up Little Bob.

I guess we win some and lose some.

Barnbrook is a fuckwit said...

"he has been signed off work for stress"

He should be signed off permanently for being a drunken stupid bastard.

Some idiot on Stormfront has this to say

"Get well soon, Richard!"

Do they seriously believe this bollocks?

Why can he not go back to Thailand, by the way?

He's had a lot of stress to deal with over the years.

There was all that fuss over his gay porn movie.

Then his fiancée got robbed at knifepoint inside a locked wardrobe.

And now he seems to have been caught out lying about murders.

He never stops work. When I was showing a passing interest a while back (until I woke up) he was working a twelve hour day. Up at five and never stopped. Not surprised this has happened at all.

'Up at five'

He was only up at five because he was still pissed from the night before. Face it, Barnbrook is a lying twat and a waste of space.

Do we assume it was Barnes' advice for Dicky to go sick? If so, it's not going to work for long is it.

"Barnes, according to sources from Barking and Dagenham Council, told Barnbrook that the “make-up” of the panel would not guarantee him a fair hearing."

They ALWAYS say that. It's wearing a bit thin now.

Just a thought, why doesn't this blog combine with Norfolk Unity so that some of the cartoons they have there can appear on LUAF?

I know Denise G works for both blogs so I can't see why they're kept seperate.

Don't get me wrong though. LUAF is my first read of the day.

Anyone else see the uncanny resemblence?

Dicky Bumbrook's finally sucked off more than he can chew (pun intended)!

Let's face it, guys. If your only hope of salvation was the legal representation of Lee John Barnes, wouldn't you be suffering from stress as well?

Classic! :o)

"working a twelve hour day"

Was he fuck! He was lucky to put in a solid hour if it wasn't in a pub. He's done fuck all for the residents of B and D.

Haider's Ghost said...

Fake folk musicians, fake lawyers, fake members of the clergy.........

Someone should examine whether the "GP" is in-fact not a real doctor at all, but rather Mark Collett playing doctors and nurses with bosom buddy Bumbrook.

Word has it Peedo Boy Collett has a rather small stethoscope.

I'll bet they were relieved at not having to listen to his stuttering slurring bullshit for hours.

Only my opinion but I would have thought it was better to have a lot of blogs dealing primarily with separate areas. The more the merrier in fact.

On the subject of cartoons, I'm pretty sure this blog has used some of those from NU occasionally.

Looks like NNW are now advising local units within the BNP to break away as independent groups, including Burnley and the West Midlands.

Just to pause the Bumbrook stuff, Griffo said that he intended to use some of his money to fund "childrens activities", which he means the (Hitlerite) "Griffin Youth".

Can't imagine £30 will buy many brown-shirted uniforms, lol

He was in the pub at 11.45

Any antifascist blog is welcome to our cartoons, any time. We'll even do them specially, if we're asked.

But it's horses for courses with the blogs.

Walsall BNP member said...

I AM a member of the BNP and I know you hate everything I stand for but I have to tell you that this news is embarrassing. I really believed that the BNP had people who were honourable and acted above the school playground that is today's mainstream partys. I am a working man, living in a council house I bought 15 years ago. I am not a racist. My wife and myself have close Jamaican friends three doors down the road and we joined the BNP because we thought it would make a difference, be different from the other partys which have brought social and economic ruin to this country. Even our West Indian friends say that there is too much immigration and want the government to do SOMETHING about it.

I have never thrown a sickie in my life, apart from 2 days when I had my appendix removed in 1984. I do not aspire to be an Asembly member or an MP but I expect those BNP members who do get elected to office to behave with honour and some backbone.

I am ashamed to see this happen and my membership card is very close to being shredded.

I can never agree with what the LUAF stand for but on this issue I share your contempt and disgust for Barnbrook - he is beyond a joke. I am so disgusted that I felt compelled to make this, my first and probably last posting on your blog.

Stop stop stop. I fell off my chair in hoots of laughter. Barnes and Barnbrook - names sound similar. I wonder if by chance they are related. A right couple of clowns. Anti-racists dont need to picket, demonstrate or make protests, these goons do all the work for us!

Walsall BNP

We are not all knee-jerk Lefties on here. Some are ex-NF and even ex-BNP who questioned our beliefs, changed our outlook and realised that our former leaders weren't worth looking up to. They seemed happy to march you up to the top of the hill and leave you there (so to speak).

Good luck shredding that membership card.

Anonymous said...

There was at least one very disappointed person in that council chamber this morning, who wrongly thought they were going to finally see Lee Barnes out of his straight jacket, in the flesh so to speak.

What a let down.

For those of you who asked, yes there was a legal sicknote faxed over to the officer concerned, it would appear that Dicky managed to see his doctor at 8.0am this morning in Blackheath.

Obviously the NHS works for Dicky, bit odd that he crawled all the way to Blackheath though when there is a very good GPs practice 5 minutes down the road from where he says he lives in B & D

Walsall man It IS possible to be British, patriotic and as you've proved with your Black friends not a racist buffoon BNP type who judges people by skin colour not character. I only hope more people in a similar situation will see the BNP for the pathetic liars and criminals that they are.

As I've always said the BNP are White nationalists not British nationalists, there is a huge difference between the two and your shredder may be all fired up and ready to go right NOW.

Brummie bloke.

John P said...

Stress, ah bless.
It would be interesting to find out if his doctors appointment was prebooked or if he turned up at the door saying my Legal beagle needs sectioning and I'm suffering from alcoholic anxiety attacks and big nasty people are going to tell me off and I don't want them to

Anonymous said...

What exactly is the point of this - is it not just putting off the inevitable? Surely when he "recovers" he will still have to go through the process which he is apparently trying to avoid? Seems very childish, but then it is the BNP...... Seems thir knee jerk reaction to everything is to blame someone else and lie.

Anonymous said...

Well at least Dicky is hiding behind a sick note, if you read Darbys blog, he says something altogether different, he states that everyone else has it wrong, Dicky and Barnes did not attend because on Barnes legal advice the Standards Board as convened were not qualified to hear the case.

No just who do you believe?
