Labour Party Member Convicted of Threatening To Kill BNP Leader
Not that it really is unusual anymore but the Coventry Telegraph provides us with yet another example of left wing violence. Nice of them to point out he was a Labour Party member though, I wonder if they will expel him or reward him with lifetime membership or perhaps a safe Labour seat. One wonders when one fills out a Labour membership form if there is a box to tick indicating a mandatory predilection towards thuggery.
Meanwhile as Anglo Saxons struggle in the debilitating heat secret squirrels amongst us who cannot openly help the BNP can perhaps turn their minds whilst hiding from the sun to legal matters. Specifically, it appears that the current police investigation into the spectacular mission creep at the Unite Union may turn up more that the Labour plaintiffs might have bargained for.
The union, operating more like a political party that a vehicle for workers' benevolence, might just have strayed far enough from their stated purpose to affect their third party status afforded to them by the Electoral Commission.. Under the Representation of the People Act 1983 and the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 there are strict rules for how such bodies can operate.
Unite used its third party status to contribute towards the estimated £500,000 spent at the 2010 general election disparaging the BNP. One would hope that if the Electoral Commission was fit for purpose they might already be on to this. However, a little bit of background research and a quick email in their direction might pay handsome dividends.
As for me, following on from the Lions win in Sydney, I'm further insuring against Andy Murray disappointing us again. I really, really hope my bet goes down again.
