Bob Bailey – defrauding the taxpayer from here to Germany
The London organiser of the BNP is the husband of a German Embassy diplomat and benefits from accommodation and allowances provided by the German taxpayer. Bob Bailey also enjoys some diplomatic immunity as the family member of an envoy – though this is limited as he remains a British citizen.
He married Martina Borgfeldt in Australia in 1999 after meeting her while serving in the Royal Marines in Africa. The latest issue of the Diplomatic List shows she is an “assistant attaché” at the German embassy.
Mr Bailey is leader of the opposition on Barking and Dagenham Council, which he hopes to take control of at next month’s elections. He gives his main home as an address in Barking and Dagenham, east London, but lives in embassy-provided accommodation in west London. This appears to breach rules which say that council candidates must live or work in the same borough.
One source close to the embassy said that Mr Bailey had never told his wife that he was a BNP leader and she found out when confronted recently by her superiors. Mr Bailey yesterday refused to deny this, or his marriage to Mrs Borgfeldt, or that he lived with her in a home paid for by the German embassy, though he insisted he did live in Barking.

A leading BNP activist from Suffolk has pleaded guilty to possession of an explosive substance without an explosives licence.
David Lucas, of South Road, Lakenheath, denied two further charges when he appeared before Ipswich Crown Court for a hearing into his case on Friday.
The 49-year-old pleaded not guilty to having an explosive substance under suspicious circumstances and possessing a prohibited weapon.
A fourth charge of possession of ammunition with intent to endanger life was withdrawn by the Crown Prosecution Service during the same hearing.
Lucas is due to stand trial for the two allegations he denies on July 26.
The charges relate to April 23 last year.
The charge of possession of explosives under suspicious circumstances can only be brought by police with the authorisation of the Attorney General.
Lucas is currently on conditional bail. He is required to live and sleep each night at his address in South Road, Lakenheath, or at a caravan at Hockwold, Norfolk.
Lucas must also not make contact with William Hudson or Robert Chipperfield and not take any steps to leave the country.
His passport remains with police.
