Far-right activists used blogs and message boards to express panic at the risk to their jobs and blame different factions within the BNP. However, some expressed defiance in the face of the leak. Below are comments from sites such as Stormfront.org, a US white supremacist website, used by BNP members, and NorthWestNationalists website. Some anti-fascists have been leaving gleeful comments.
"I don't want to lose my job over this. Just now my mate Chris rang me, he works in the public domain, and all he could do was scream: "Unbelievable Jeff!" Down the phone at me. I could not calm him down at all."
"This leak is internal, done on purpose ... [BNP leader Nick] Griffin can strike double whammy. The BNP will appear persecuted with oodles of publicity ..."
"Someone or some people at the highest levels in the BNP has/have to take responsibility for this. I bet a pound to a penny Nick Griffin would not hesitate in making an example of them to restore confidence."
"No company will ever want to employ anyone on the list ever. Class action?"
"There must have been a commie mole within the BNP. This is nothing short of political persecution at its worst."
"If anything happens to my house I'm holding the Decemberist rebels responsible, they had the lists and that's the only way it could have come out." [In December, 50 BNP councillors and organisers resigned and declared themselves to be the "Real BNP".]
"My name is on it as well including my private email address and home and mobile phone numbers but I don't give a stuff, I will carry on as normal."
"All you moaners out there make sure you are not standing by me when the real fight begins, I want someone who can stand up for themselves without blubbering."
