Talksport radio said it would ‘no longer use’ DJ Rod Lucas who covered late night shifts for the station earlier this year. (…)
Lucas, a Sony Award winner who once worked for Radio One, had been hailed by TalkSport bosses for his work but they took swift action today.
A spokesman said: ‘We won’t be using him again. We had no knowledge of his association with the British National Party.’ (…)
BNP spokesman Simon Darby said: ‘It is looking increasingly likely that this is the work of Labour Party supporters. If they have not protected their IP (internet service provider address) properly, there will be an electronic trail leading back to the culprit.’
He added: ‘If we find out who published this list, it will turn out to be one of the most foolish things they have done in their life. I wouldn’t want to have done that – I wouldn’t be sleeping very well tonight.’
The list includes people’s names, addresses and ages as well as other ‘relevant’ information. Children are also on it because the party has family membership deals. (…)
Among the 68 members listed as former servicemen are one Chelsea Pensioner, three Paras, three Guards and two Royal Marines.
Other members are identified as practising pagans and one male member is listed as ‘witch’.
