Yes, I'm angry at the BNP. I'm angry at their tendency to lie when they canvas, I'm angry at their insistence that they're not racist HONEST, but really? I'm even angrier at Labour. They've abandoned their traditional ideology, they abandoned the working class to go and court big business in an attempt to make Britain the "enterprise capital of the world," and then act all surprised when the electorate turn to the BNP. It's because they're pissed off and they've got no alternative.

The thing that really scares me is that they have a European platform, they have a national platform and they'll get more funding. More funding means more opportunity to play on people's fears and spread their poison.

One exam down, three to go. I think it went okay but I'm bricking myself about tomrrow. I'm dog tired already but I've got two exams to get through tomorrow. I'm going to be dead to the world after five tomorrow. Not looking forward to it at. All.

In other news, I think I'll be voting in the European election in June, and I'd encourage all other UK types to do the same. I know they're corrupt, I know there's nothing to choose between the mainstream parties, I know it's massively apathy-inducing but when apathy takes over the electorate, that's when the BNP pick up seats. That scares me. So vote, please vote. Vote for the lesser evil, vote monster raving looney party if you have to, anything to decrease their share of the vote. Here's some choice quotes if you still need convincing:

“Honestly now, would you prefer your kid growing up in Oldham and Burnley or 1930s Germany? It would be better for your child to grow up there.”
Mark Collett, leader of the Young BNP on Channel 4 in 2004

“Meanwhile, the indigenous side in the low-to-medium level civil war brewing in this country is getting its training...It’s all going to get very messy.”
Nick Griffin’s blog on BNP website

“Rape is simply sex. Women enjoy sex, so rape cannot be such a terrible physical ordeal… [It] is like suggesting forcefeeding a woman chocolate cake is a heinous offence.”
Then BNP London organiser and GLA candidate, Nick Eriksen

AIDS is “a friendly disease because blacks, drug users and gays have it.”
Mark Collett, leader of the Young BNP on Channel 4 in 2004
