Yes the rent a mob out to do the very same thing they accuse others of doing.
I've just seen the "peaceful" extreme-left protests on TV. I never realised it was illegal to have anything but left-wing political views in this country, but it certainly seems to be going that that way these days.
I've never posted on an right-wing message board, but I have posted to message boards with an extreme-left wing agenda (you have to know your enemy - and the extreme right is just as big an enemy as the extreme left), and one of the things I noted is that all those talking about "worker solidarity" etc have rarely had any meaningful work, mainly because their well-off Home Counties parents can fund their gap years, extended university education, and bale them out if times get hard - while the rest of us are too busy making a living to take a day off and spend it attacking police officers outside the BBC.
I suspect that many members from that particular board I referred to above will be having their usual, almost entirely white "Metropolitan" middle-class, apres-protest party at a pub in a well-known south London pub later today, just like they always do. Funny how none of them were ever outside the mills up North when they were closing down. Interfered with their weed-and-beer parties down south, I expect. So much for "worker solidarity". But I digress... ;)
I suppose what I really want to say is that, even though I don't agree with Communists, I think they should have the right to state their opinion. The BNP quite clearly shouldn't be a major issue in UK politics, but as every other political party buries its head in the sand, and labels anyone who dares to question current policy as "racists", someone else will arise to fill the gap. And there is a huge gap, because no other UK party appears to represent ordinary workers (of whatever race, incidentally) or the issues affecting them. And, like it or not, immigration is a huge part of that equation.
We've been betrayed by the right, left, and everyone else in between, and for many, the BNP appears to be the only solution, the only real opposition to the treacherous LibLabCon cartel. I can't remember the last time a member of any other political party knocked on my door - but the BNP has, on several occasions, and has leafleted my house several times. The only other leaflet was from the Greens!
I'm probably going to miss tonight's Question Time, but banning the BNP from appearing is even more likely to increase their popularity than allowing them to appear - remember what happened to the USA during Prohibition? if nothing else, tonight's programme (if the Left allow it to take place, that is) may at least serve as a huge kick up the rear for the apathetic British voting public - and that can't be a bad thing.
