This guy was not voted onto Corsham Parish Council...he just was not opposed.

Too right Lilith -where the fuck is Corsham?? Are the people particularly stupid there?

Lilith said...

Corsham is in Wiltshire, Mutters....where everybody is white. I think it is mostly old ladies who live there but I don't know if they are particularly stupid... just rather dozy.

"We are proud of our history and heritage but simultaneously proud of our local community and place in the community of Corsham."

Lovely woman, Mrs Cleverley; and she's not letting it pass, even though she says people are quite frightened of the BNP - I am too.

Mrs Cleverley is a star HG. I find the BNP scary too.

The BNP is a party for indigenous British people. Black, Asian, Chinese, Aborigine, Maori and Eskimo people cannot join.
How far back will they vet your ancestry? I am sure I have a bit of Apache Indian in me, I hated that Custer bloke, he looked a real tart with his golden locks.

Lilith said...

Excellent point Ratty. I have a friend who has straight blond hair, peachy skin and blue eyes. His gran is black Jamaican. I think more DNA testing is in order so that these poor BNP people can be absolutely sure of just who they are representing.

If they were frightened enough, and cross enough, the Vikings went berserk.

Is genetic inheritance a defence for going berserk on BNPers?

Lilith said...

It might be worth a try HG! BTW I have windows in my office because my "office" is a cupboard in the kitchen with the doors taken off.

Very worrying.

Actually I thought all races could join the BNP but that the party was against inter-racial breeding (anathema to me - I like sex with everyone). I'll have to check on their website to see.

My point here would be that people aren't apathetic - they are without hope and that is a vrey different thing. The opportunity to vote 'none of the above' would probably have resulted in a very different level of voter turnout.

What is worrying is not the BNP (does anyone seriously think they would be allowed the levers of government ? The people who really control this country would step in at that point.) it is the fact that we have absolutely no choice on the direction in which our country is being taken on the most crucial of issues.

"it is the fact that we have absolutely no choice on the direction in which our country is being taken on the most crucial of issues".

Electro Kevin is right. We have the three main parties all wanting to remain in the undemocratic EU, they all like political correctness, they all lie and the ruling party got in on 22% of the electorate having voted for them. Makes you fell kinda proud doesn't it!

JJ and EK: Just so. I am furious this morning with the opposition for failing so singularly to OPPOSE.
