Meanwhile there was a spectacular own goal from the Labour Party in Salford last night as their gamble that BBC Radio Manchester would capitulate to their blackmail failed totally. The result was that the BBC called their bluff meaning that the BNP's Eddy O'Sullivan took part and Labour's Ian Stewart was left to contemplate an humiliating self-imposed exile.
Of course this is what should happen every time one of the candidates tries to subvert the democratic process, seeking to camouflage their arrogance and cowardice with a moral justification. If nothing else in this election period we have exposed the intolerance and bigotry of the fascistic left and their unhealthy relationship with some of the media. Some aspects of the BBC, the Manchester Evening News, the Liverpool Echo and others should really be summoned before the Leveson Inquiry to explain their contempt and willingness to corrupt the political process.
