BNP chief Nick Griffin says Tony Blair and Gordon Brown should be HANGED for waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Indeed. And for many other things besides.
Amusing that he should be the one making comparisons with Nazi Germany, but I suppose the subject is a bit nearer and dearer to him than for most other people. I wonder how anti-war protesters calling for the prosecution of Blair and the many Muslims who (quite justifiably) resent the invasion of predominantly Muslim countries in the name of oil and spreading Western hegemony, feel about making common cause with yet another monocular mentalist.
Overall, I think it was quite a clever move. The self-righteous indignation that's frothing up is because Griffin said what an awful lot of people are really thinking, but they don't want to be associated with "BNP nastiness". He's provoked people into a knee-jerk reaction, but if he keeps banging out things that "the common people" are thinking anyway, the bad press he gets will, I reckon, be countered by actual voters thinking: "Well, he calls it how I see it, what do the fucking papers know anyway? And the Tories and Labour are all the same anyway, only looking after themselves. Maybe I'll give this bloke a go."
Possibly they will be holding their nose (as Marxist Dave Osler so amusingly keeps saying while voting for a largely right-wing, authoritarian Labour Party) - but they will listen to a politician who at least sounds like he's in touch with what real people are thinking.
The out-of-touch, focus-group-driven, Westminster-bubbled "Red" Labour Party and the indistinguishable Blue Labour and Yellow Labour parties with their imaginary worlds have no-one to blame for the impending success of the BNP but themselves.
