A SECRET list of BNP members has revealed the party includes people from a range of professions, not just the police.
According to the list, published on the internet, British National Party supporters now include doctors, vicars, teachers, sports commentators and children's clowns.
Tom Logan, professor of sociology at Reading University, said: "This explodes the myth of BNP members as skinhead thugs with Doc Marten boots, tattoos and unusual helmets."
The party, founded in 1982 as a book club for metropolitan police constables, soon expanded to include senior officers up to the rank of superintendent, as well as a growing number of angry retired policeman.
Among the party's new members is ITV football commentator Roy Hobbs, known for his refusal to pronounce foreign surnames, and the Right Reverend Julian Cook, author of bestselling book Was Jesus from Dorset?
Professor Logan added: "My neighbour's a retired policeman. He keeps telling me that it used to be nice round here but now everything smells of ghee."
A spokesman for the British Medical Association said: "A good way to determine if your doctor is in the BNP is if he tells you to open your mouth, say 'aaah' and then asks if you've been in contact with any Jews recently.
"He may also want to measure the diameter of your skull and the width of your nose before recommending you for sterilisation."
The British Dental Association insisted its membership has been Nazi-free since 2005.
