This evening saw a party Political Broadcast broadcast on British TV, on behalf of the BNP. (British National Party).
(For the benefit of overseas' visitors to the blog, this is an insiduous political organisation that preaches racial hatred & intolerance).
I realise that the UK / Great Britain is a democracy and that all groups and citizens enjoy the right to freedom of speech. This is largely due today to the unilateral stance that the UK took over the rise of Nazi Germany - my own Grandfather volunteered for the British Army in 1939 as he was a committed socialist and abhorred facism. In some ways, it is good that the BNP can broadcast its racist bullshit, as it shows them up for what they are and allows their members to inadvertently ridicule themselves.
However, they already have a seat on the Greater London Assembly, and also in the European parliament.
May 6th will see Local and General Elections in the UK - I urge everyone to use their vote and not fall into the trap of apathy... "I can't be arsed to vote..." ; "What's the point ?" etc - this is how fascist scum like the BNP gradually gain power and influence.
It may surprise people to learn that ordinary people died in Victorian Britain over the struggle to be granted the right to Vote, and that women did not enjoy this right until the 1920s.
Use your vote and keep this evil organisation where it belongs - in the wilderness.
