Funeral of the BNP


Watched about an hour of the the Michael Jackson gig on TV last night. It was a wonder they hadn’t dragooned David Dimbleby in to do the sombre voice-over for BBC2 (why does my spell-checker spell it as somber?). I have to say though that Mariah Carey just annoys the shit out of me with her self-indulgent vocal gymnastics. Stevie Wonder’s and Lionel Richie’s sets, however, were sublime – but what else would you expect from such consummate professionals, even if they do dye their hair. Lots of shouty civil rights people yelling at the audience though; they must take lessons in how to be loud and how to turn an event into a rally – no matter how incongruous or inappropriate the occasion.

Wonderful news for British National Party supporters; a study has found that illegal immigrants do not queue-jump the indigenous UK population when it comes to being offered social housing. Thank God that this myth, which the BNP perpetuate, can at last be laid to rest. Now they will have to start articulating the real reason they don’t like immigrants – because they have the sheer nerve and effrontery to be different.

  2. Roshni: It is a sad indictment of the state of UK televisual entertainment when one is prepared to watch something like this.

  6. I posted on fighting fascism today, Sir...

    Great minds I would hope, but my intellect is but a pimple on yours, so it's co-incidence really, but we are coming from the same place, for which I am grateful, and I only hope there are others of us prepared to 'man the barricades' against them if we have to - Particularly a man like you, with such building skills! x

  8. Joy: No - illegals aren't given housing at all. They're put in reception centres.
