Eulalie

There is no point throwing eggs at Nick Griffin.  Just crack jokes over him.  He’s a ridiculous little man who should be allowed to prove how stupid he is  in debate.

I’ve been wondering who he reminded me of and it suddenly dawned – he’s Roderick Spode minus the ladies underwear (I assume, although I suppose you never know…)

The trouble with you, Spode, is that just because you have succeeded in inducing a handful of half-wits to disfigure the London scene by going about in black shorts, you think you’re someone. You hear them shouting “Heil, Spode!” and you imagine it is the Voice of the People. That is where you make your bloomer. What the Voice of the People is saying is: “Look at that frightful ass Spode swanking about in footer bags! Did you ever in your puff see such a perfect perisher?”

  1. Footer bags? Gad, How ghastly!

    My worry about the BNP is that there are a lot of people who have a gut sympathy with the argument Nick Griffin made on the election night programme and again when interviewed by John Humphreys on the Today programme, that he, as indigenous white British, is a member of the racial group which truly suffers discrimination in this country. As the sage O’Rourke once said, “There are a lot of people in tis country who feel this way (especially after two or three drinks). ”

    I was greatly comforted by the article in Tuesday’s Guardian where several distinguished historians dicussed the progress of right wing parties in what for me were reassuring tones.

    Nick Griffin is not Hitler; he’s not Mosley; he’s not even Le Pen. He’s a professional political operative in his 40s who has never had to deal with serious media scrutiny, because no one has ever taken him seriously before. He will be scrutinised more now he holds elected office, he will be asked about the logic of his policy positions and he will be targeted by the satirists. I suspect that his temper won’t last out. Perhaps the producers of Have I Got News For You are trying to book him as I write, while running a sweep on how long it would take before he punches Paul Merton.

    The election of BNP MEPs is a sign of scale of the protest and contempt at the failure of the Labour Party in the eyes of its core supporters. I fear there is a streak of gut racism in my fellow countrymen; I don’t think they’ve turned into fascists yet.
