The DWP have confirmed that membership of the BNP is permitted amongst their staff. Whether they consider that could be connected to the high percentage of ethnic minorities being forced onto their slave labour schemes joins the many other subjects concerning Mandatory Work Activity which are shrouded in secrecy.
