    Post BNP told "stay away from matches"

    The British National Party has been told by football fans to stay way from local grounds after members canvassed support outside the Oval at the weekend.

    They issued leaflets seeking support to bring Troops back from Afghanistan.

    Graham Moore from the Castlereagh Glentoran Supporters' Club said the BNP was not something fans want to be associated with.

    The BBC contacted the BNP office for a response, but no one replied.

    Mr Moore said he noticed BNP literature on car windscreens on his way into the football ground.

    "I noticed the BNP presence and I have to say I was a little puzzled.


    East Belfast DUP MLA Robin Newton described the presence of the BNP at the football game as uninvited and unwelcome.

    Mr Newton said a number of constituents contacted him to "express their disgust" at the presence of the BNP outside their local club.

    "They go to the Oval to support the Glens and enjoy a game of football; they don't want to be faced with BNP messages of hate," Mr Newton said.

    "Glentoran Football Club has a generational tradition of appealing to a broad range of supporters and players, irrespective of race or religion.

    "I presume this BNP presence is some sort of campaign to raise their nauseous profile, and I appeal for everyone to stand as one to reject their message," he added.

    "I understand they are now seeking to link their actions to some form of support for our troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    "How ironic, given the fact that our brave young soldiers are currently fighting those who espouse exactly the same sort of bile and hate as preached by the BNP.

    I think they should be discouraged from coming around football grounds - or anywhere really. But it does slightly amuse me at the same time, that the reality of what many areas are like in NI and Belfast are a BNP ideal.
    They would love loyalist areas where people fly union flags from the lampposts and even above their front doors sometimes. And where the kids can't get too anti-social like in England often. Because some of the older middle aged men from the area are still a bit scary. Ex paramilitaries etc.

    I was in the Belvoir Estate, in the farthest of south Belfast at the weekend, and I got this idea that the BNP would just love it for the way that it still is. Almost totally white working class Unionist. The housing is fine - they have a lovely river and forest area just behind it ... and young people know who is boss. (Their dads and the older people).

    BNP agenda will never fit with NI unionists ,as it does not fit the NI unionist political landscape .Mass immigration is mainly an English issue ,where white working classes feel the loss of their culture and place in society as it has changed too much through immigration.
    Their only common ground they may have is their "patriotism" ,however , the Nazi background from whence they emerged rocks that a bit.I do believe their is a need to champion white working class as cultural elite are uninterested and crazy socialism is irrevelant to their everday lives.BNP fills that gap in certain places ,like Burnley rightly or wrongly.

    There is no respect for the BNP amongst the majority of Ulster Loyalists, and that's the way it should be.
    Ulster Abu!

    As much as I hate the BNP, it is their democratic right to canvass wherever they want. Blocking them from canvassing etc anywhere would be outright fascism.

    We've all seen what Nick Griffin is like with the media cameras when something bad happens to his party we are just adding fuel to the flames...

    Sound more like a phase rather than something serious.

    Obviously Im not a fan of the BNP but giving a head butt like this to the only people with a geniune respect and wish for friendship with you for the sake of appearing "modern" and "mainstream" or whatever is LOW.....Even the Provies had the spine in the "Holy, Catholic Ireland" of the early 80s to condemn the CIA's and Vatitican's attempt to bring down the People's Democracy in Poland....Again this is LOW!

    Interestingly the BNP wannabe loyalists form the ' mainland ' haven't made a comment yet. Though when Criumh and Brit Citizen are posting loyalist tripe they cann't stay away from the board. Gee schucks, they must be felling so unwanted and not the real deal by their unionists buddies

    Well if they want to urinate on their English mates....They still have the nutty Calvinist rejects from mainstream Church life in the USA to be their pals....
