Boston - When I hear that old song they used to play

There's some absolutely horrific stuff going through the European Parliament tomorrow afternoon. Plans to set up a harmonised European state pension system along with another proposal to standardise personal and corporation tax across the continent will be given a firm BNP boot.

Meanwhile another initiative on offshore oil and gas exploration, if voted through, would mean that the UK has to bring in less effective and efficient safety rules, scrapping our own in the process. Nations without a  border with the North Sea shouldn't have any say in the matter and I detect a certain amount of German and French jealously towards ourselves and the Norwegians being openly acknowledged as the best in the business.

It was across in Boston, Lincs where the best laugh of the day belongs though as the local newspaper brings us this little gem following on from the Sunday Mirror yesterday

The pair both firmly stressed to The Standard that they are not racist – and said attempts to paint them as such are part of an attempt to undermine UKIP following its election success in Boston.
Coun Pain is the leader of the opposition at Lincolnshire County Council after winning the Wainfleet and Burgh division. He will contest the Boston and Skegness constituency at the next General Election.
He was said to have written: “Have you noticed that if you ­rearrange the letters in ‘illegal ­immigrants’, and add just a few more letters, it spells, ‘Go home you free-loading, benefit-grabbing, resource-sucking, baby-making, non-English-speaking ********* and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, bomb-making, camel-riding, goat-********, raghead ******** with you.’”..

Nick Lowles of the campaign group Hate Not Hope responded to Coun Pain’s post by saying: “This is the most disgusting racist outburst from any election official I have ever heard. In fact, nothing a BNP councillor has said in recent years has come close to it.”
