A bad day for decency

The BNP have won a seat in my borough. In my opinion, people are not 'driven' to vote for the BNP by nine days of scandalous politics. Nine years could do it, I suppose. But anyone who casts a vote for the BNP is committing an rascist act. I wish I lived somewhere normal and ethnically diverse and inner-city again, where the worst that could happen was Labour winning hands-down again.

We didn't get to vote up here - so I had to sit idly by and wait for events to unfold.

Synopsis of short films above:
The first is a montage of bushisms, including such golden moments as:

I know that fish and humans can coexist.

Is our children learning?

and the famous texan saying...

Fool me once, shame on, shame on... you. Fool me once, you can't get fooled again.

The second delight is a duo between Blair (aka Diana Ross) and Bush (aka Lionel Ritchie) - They sing Endless Love. Beautiful... just beautiful.

Of course people don't get driven to vote BNP by the scandals of the last fortnight.In my opinion, the votes for the BNP in the South East can be summarised in one word: housing crisis.

See also that excellent post you did a while back about your Old People's group in your last library.

Hey, we got a Green councillor! Not in my ward, but still!

You could have voted by postal vote to London if you'd really wanted, I suppose, Ref.

It's funny how clever the BNP are at getting poor people to think their poverty is caused by other poor people- New Labour seem to be getting better at this trick as well, but they have yet to make it work for them on election night. Respect scored pretty well in one borough at least- http://www.newham.gov.uk/Services/Elections2006/resultslocalelection.htm. Hope Sir Robin's worried he won't even make the Olympics now- only half the votes went to him...
