BNP | McCarthy style witch-hunts

22 05 2010

I was going to report that binmen in Rotherhite had suspected the letters’ “B/P” written on the top of recycling bins meant the resident was a BNP supporter and reported this ‘orrible offence to their supervisor.  Said super has a chinwag with the occupier of the property finding out that the markings were innocent reminders of the recycling order.

And even after being told the above, the super still offers to swap the ‘offending‘ boxes to avoid further confusion which the occupier rightly refuses and categorically states that although he is not a supporter of the party, even if he were, what business is it to the council?

But alas, Simon Darby beat me to it so will instead bring you the tale of Gary Marsden I’Anson, a victim of a witch-hunt McCarthy would be proud of.  First the background with the help of an HR website, HeadOffice (23/04/2010):

A former employee of West Yorkshire Police who writes controversial right-wing songs in his spare time has brought a claim for unfair dismissal against the force.

Gary Marsden I’Anson was sacked from his job as a police imaging officer in February 2009 over alleged links with the British National Party (BNP) and for using work time to produce far-right DVDs, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports.

Mr I’Anson is a singer-songwriter who performs in front of a Union Jack and has published lyrics expressing right-wing views.

However, he has denied claims his material is racist and also told the tribunal he never used police time to work on his promotional CDs and DVDs.

The 48-year-old said: “I did not steal one minute of police time because I am not a thief.

“I have been discriminated against because I have celebrated my culture and heritage. The police didn’t like it full stop.”

David Jones, representing the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police, said profits from a website run by Mr I’Anson were used to fund BNP activities.

What the above fails to mention is that Mr I’Anson was arrested for the alleged offence of being involved with the BNP.  In any other country this would be classed as political persecution would it not?

Excluding people from society because of their religious, cultural or political beliefs is immoral is it not?  Or is this an acceptable price to pay for Liberty?  Only being allowed to join the Inner Party if you are a supporter of the Centralist Establishment Parties, otherwise it is a life as a prole that beckons.

Leeds racism row singer loses unfair dismissal claim against police

Yorkshire Evening Post.  Published Date: 21 May 2010

A racism row singer fired from his day job with West Yorkshire Police has lost his claim for unfair dismissal.

Gary Marsden I’Anson, of Morley, was arrested and sacked over his alleged association with the British National Party and for using work time to compile right-wing CDs and DVDs for his rock band Anglo Saxon.

The police imaging officer of 23 years claimed West Yorkshire Police unfairly dismissed and discriminated against him.

But an employment tribunal in Leeds has ruled against Mr I’Anson.

Deputy Chief Constable David Crompton said: “This case was significantly aggravated by the fact that force computers were being used in order to generate material which was clearly supportive of the BNP and which had content that was unquestionably contrary to the aims and values of the force.”

Now jobless Mr I’Anson, 48, said: “It’s a sad day for freedom of speech, artistic expression, liberty, democracy and human rights. It is a good day for political correctness.”

Mr I’Anson denies any political links to the BNP and says he is not racist but an ‘anti-terrorist patriot.’

He said police were “talking nonsense” over claims he is associated with the BNP.

In 2007 Mr I’Anson was arrested on suspicion of possession of written material with intent to incite racial hatred. He denied any wrongdoing and no charges were brought.

After being suspended on full pay he was eventually sacked in February 2009, after a two-year investigation.

Listen hear Mr Crompton, the aims and values of the Police Force are simple, it is to deter crime and be incorruptible.  It is not to be the Government’s political enforcer.  You are paid to uphold the law, not waste two years perverting it.  Two years for Christ’s sake!?

Where were you when our Politicians were busying themselves signing away our sovereignty?  Where were you when our Thin Blue Line executed an innocent man in Stockwell?  Where were you when our grannies and our kids were being robbed, assaulted and killed?

I tell you where, you were investigating a political motivated catch-all ‘hate’ crime for two bloody years!

God.  Mad.  Funeral Pyres.
