Crippen looks at the reality of BNP politics / 27 August 2009

An article caught my eye earlier today which contained the following quote from Counsellor Pat Richardson, leader of the BNP group on the Essex council. This follows a kidnapping at knife point of a local muslim man and firebombing of his home: Cll. Richardson said her party was not behind these attacks.

"Firebombing is not a British method. A brick through the window is a British method ..." she said.

Oh, that's alright then!

The link to the article, which appears in the Guardian is:

Daniel James - Some of you may have noticed that I've recieved a response to a blog I posted back in July about the assisted suicide debate. The response is from the younger sister of Daniel James who chose to end his life back in September 2008. She's obviously still experiencing a lot of pain over the loss of her brother and I would ask people to respect this and to not add further comments without taking this into account. Thanks guys.
