Mick Braun, the BNP candidate for the Tilbury Riverside & Thurrock Park ward in Thurrock, has been described as an “utter racist and a loose cannon”. This description does not come from us (though we do not disagree), but instead comes from the ex Havering BNP councillor Mark Logan in an interview he gave to the Ilford Recorder just last year. Braun isn’t actually from Thurrock but from nearby Romford and is actually the BNP’s Havering organiser
Braun’s Facebook account is overflowing with racist and homophobic sentiment, in fact it is one of the worst accounts we have seen so far.
Not for the first time, much of what Braun has to say for himself is far too disgusting for us to reproduce. One posting that does stand out though is where Mick Braun or Mick Brown as he also likes to be known as on Facebook, advocates spraying Asians and homosexuals with hydrochloric acid.
Braun also suggests posting a Molotov cocktail through the letter box of an Asian family that has just moved next door to one of his Facebook friends. He also suggests setting fire to mosques in response to Islamic extremists burning the Union Jack.
Neither is Braun too bothered as to whether the police are monitoring his activities. In one posting he suggests “let’s set up a ‘where a copper lives’ site so we can alert all nationalists where these treacherous bastards live and let’s give them hell for a change”. So much for the BNP being the party of law and order.
Another Thurrock candidate is Karne McGinn who is standing in the Ockenden ward.
McGinn passes his time on the social networking site posting things like as “Kill the Muslim scum” and compliments one of his Facebook friends for having a Swastika for his profile photo.
McGinn also attempted to start an online campaign of hate directed at a local takeaway in nearby Grays in Essex, because the takeaway sells Halal meat. He printed the phone number of the takeaway encouraging people to withhold their telephone number and ring them up to “give them some grief”.
