The BNP made a shock gain in the latest council by-elections, taking a Labour seat at Sevenoaks District, Kent.
Its candidate Paul Golding won at Swanley St Mary's with a 76-vote majority.
Shock! Horror! Democratically constituted party beats another party in an election. Anyway, I really don't know why anyone is surprised, because:
The ward is a traditional Labour enclave in the Tory controlled district.
Old Labour and the BNP, two sides of the same coin. Plus, I reckon people are up to here with the EU as well.
Why is it a shock?
