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).

Ifor Bach and the rest of the wannabe loyalists from the ' mainland ' will be very disappointed with you Schomberg, posting an embarrassing thread about their saviours - the BNP. Just goes to show once again the real different agenda and mindset between unionists from Ireland and the wannabe's from the ' mainland '.

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.

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...

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!

Football is too politicised, take the politics out of it, has no place in a football ground...
Football in Italy and Germany is MUCH more politicized than here or in England.

You seem to be obsessed with having pen pals around the world :confused: Working class (trade) unionists have no truck with nazi scum, and if we want a bit of back slapping with our pals we hop on a boat, and can be having a pint in Glasgow in a coulpe of hours.

Well arent Unionists always telling us how parochial we were and about how cosmopolitan and outward looking they are?

Anyway the BNP arent Nazies. Sharpcut who used to post here was pretty supportive of the BNP. Friends are friends, and you never know when you will need them.

In Germany? Im aware of St Pauli/Hamburg but where else in Germany? Its not the case here though honey
The only sport I really have an interest is boxing (yeah I know, I know)...But in general teams in Germany and Italy are considered either to the left or right (and of course there are catorgories of left and right...St Pauli would be autonomist and SPD or tankie).
