A BNP activist is living a secret double life, desperate to prevent his employers from finding out about his extremist views – despite having stood as a candidate in last month’s election.
Tom Holmes (25) received 715 votes in the recent elections for Rotherham Council but has managed to keep his politics a secret from his work colleagues.
Holmes brags online that he is a “gold member of the British National Party” and models himself on his idol, Nick Griffin. However, he has hidden his political beliefs from employers TalkTalk, where he works as a field representative. In one online post he confessed: “I’m done for if my boss decides to look my name up as I was in the local papers. I told a ickle porkie and said I stood as an independent. Half of the office staff I work with are foreign…I don’t believe they’d be too understanding of my BNP loyalties.”
Holmes has even discussed online with pals measures he would take against his company if they discovered his true identity and tried to take action against him.
The self-styled “loyal Griffinite” was left running scared when one local nearly revealed his identity and BNP links. “One day I’m gonna run into someone that knows me and out me as a BNP candidate in front of one of my colleagues,” he explained in an online posting. “Only just started this job not quite ready to get the sack yet. Someone in Dinnington recognized me whilst I was with a colleague but thankfully couldn’t put his finger on where from.”
The far-right loner has become obsessed with online chats since his girlfriend left him over his views on immigration. He now uses his Facebook profile to vent his anger and regularly posts rants in support of Griffin, the EDL, and even conspiracy theorist David Icke. He says: “The BNP is in no-way affiliated with the EDL. But I admire them for standing up for their country. We’re doing it by the ballot box, they’re doing it the old fashioned way – a visual presence. Either way we’re both standing the same fight.”
He also uses his profile to discuss his contempt for co-workers “the people (at work) are a bit gay…who the fuck high fives in this day and age?” he declared in a rant. “Whoo wheyy we have to try and prove to ourselves that we’re a fun office so we’re going to go wheyyy then hand-slap each other whoo! – grow up ya gang of twats”
Holmes uses his page to discuss his “black book” of people to be “put up against the wall” as well as his anticipation for the coming “race war”. He also spends much of his spare time chatting online on his own personal adult chatsite – friendlychatrooms.co.uk
