The Provisional BBC is a paramilitary organisation which split from the BBC in October 2006 in protest at its toleration of poor writing and Liberal Democrats. The Provisional BBC regrets any civilian casualties resulting from posts contained within, but lays the blame squarely at the foot of the Tories. It is our duty to resist them, by any and all means necessary.

Extremist working in home office

Home Secretary John Reid is to examine claims a leading member of a radical political group is working as a senior official at the Home Office.

An investigation by lads mag Nuts! revealed that John Thompson works for the Immigration and Nationality Directorate in Croydon, South London. Mr Thompson is also a member of Amnesty International.

Amnesty has been accused of preaching tolerance towards asylum seekers and "being soft" on foreign criminals - even petitioning for their release. Prime Minister Tony Blair said last August the group would be banned, but no action has been taken so far.

When approached by Nuts! investigators Mr Thompson conveniently denied being a leader in the organisation but admitted he "may have signed a postcard" in what he described as a "moment of madness." Mr Thompson also denies working for the Home Office, claiming he is a labourer from Kent.

John Reid said he had ordered officials to look into the investigation, but Tory Homeland Security Spokesman Patrick Mercer said this was not enough. "To think there is a senior revolutionary working in the Home Office in a very sensitive area is truly worrying," he said.

Amnesty International were not available for comment.
