Britain: Iraq war chickenhawk nazi Danny Lake

From the Socialist Unity Blog in Britain, about the neo nazi British National Party:

Danny (or Daniel, as he was known until recently) is a first year politics student at Bath University, and has organised a public meeting on the campus next Monday, 14th May, with BNP leader, Nick Griffin.

You see Danny Lake isn’t any old student, he is leader of the Young BNP, he was also a close personal associate of convicted terrorist Mark Bullman, who was sentenced to five years imprisonment in January 2007 after an attempted fire bombing of a Mosque in Swindon using a petrol bomb, the fuse for which was a rolled up BNP leaflet.

Daniel Lake and Mark Bullman (also known as Mark Bullock) were also arrested together on an earlier occasion for a racially aggravated public order offence outside Swindon’ New College.

Bullman, for reasons best known to himself, regularly writes to me from prison, and when he was on remand and before he was arrested he used to regularly ring me.

He is a virulent anti-semite and he explained that the reason he attacked the mosque is because there is no synagogue in Swindon, and a Mosque was (as he put it) close enough for public consumption.

Daniel Lake first came to public attention in the run up to the attack on Iraq when he wrote a series of letters to the Swindon Advertiser, saying that everyone who opposed the war was a coward and a traitor, and that he intended to join the paratroop regiment so he could fight.

Being called cowards caused some anger with the many ex-forces men and women who opposed the war, many of whom have faced enemy fire in the service of this country.

One old soldier, Allan Thipthorpe, who both opposed the Iraq war and had fought in Palestine during the mandate, offered to meet Daniel Lake, but Daniel didn’t have the bottle for it.

Anyway, despite mentioning his determination to join up more than once, time came and went, and Daniel noticeably stayed in Swindon, and did not enlist.

It seems he could be very mouthy when it was a question of sending someone else’s brother, husband or son to die in Iraq, but he wasn’t so keen on it himself.

Then lo and behold, in May 2006, Daniel was observed handing out BNP leaflets in Swindon saying that the BNP opposed the war in Iraq.

So Daniel, in his own terms was both a coward and a traitor?

Bush’s and Blair’s Iraq war is so obviously a sinking ship, in fact has been so for years, that even the stupid nazi rats of the BNP now think they can impress the electorate as being clever by dropping their earlier support of the Iraq war.

So, no brotherly meeting at the frontlines of Iraq for chickenhawk Danny Lake with his nazi colleagues serving in the US armed forces there.

Danny Lake reminds me of US far Rightist Matt Sanchez, who in a way is even worse, as, unlike Lake as far as I know, he is accused by the US Marines of soliciting money to go to Iraq and then not going.

The SUB blog does not mention whether Danny Lake, a gay basher like all “good” BNP members, has also a record as a gay prostitute, like Mr Sanchez; and like another US chickenhawk, “Jeff Gannon“; and like Michiel Smit, leader of the by now almost defunct racist Dutch “Nieuw Rechts” [New Right] political party, member of the US Stormfront nazi Internet forum, and organizer of the only demonstration in The Netherlands supporting Bush’s March 2003 invasion in Iraq.

The SUB blog entry continues:

Nick Griffin, the leader of the British National Party, will be speaking at Bath University at 7:00 on the 14th of May. The campus trade unions are organizing a protest outside the venue.

Searchlight are calling for letters and emails from Trade Unions to be sent to the Vice Chancellor to register objections to this event.(Details below)

  1. For the record I never “claimed” to have deployed to Iraq. Don’t let the fact bother a good fictional tale. There are plenty of those who have been over there and are proud to say they would do it again.

  2. OK, it was not claiming to have been deployed to Iraq; it was soliciting money claiming to want to go there, and then not going. I will change the entry in that sense. Also for the record, the source says:

    Has Matt Sanchez Been a Bad Boy?

    Ann Coulter’s favorite ex-gay porn performer may be in big trouble.

    From Marine Corps Times:

    The Corps on Friday was slated to wrap up an investigation into allegations that a corporal in the Individual Ready Reserve who appeared in gay porn films before enlisting solicited more than $12,000 from private organizations by asking them to fund a deployment to Iraq he never made, according to e-mails from the investigating officer forwarded to Marine Corps Times.

    Reserve Col. Charles Jones, a staff judge advocate called to Marine Corps Mobilization Command in Kansas City, Mo., on temporary orders that expire Saturday, informed Reserve Cpl. Matt Sanchez of the allegations against him in a March 22 e-mail that advised Sanchez of his rights.

    Jones wrote that Sanchez’s participation in porn films was part of the investigation, but that two of the three allegations against him involved lying to various people, including but not limited to, representatives of the New York City United War Veterans Council and U-Haul Corporation about deploying to Iraq at the commandant’s request.
