I lived in Basildon for the first 18 years of my life. It looks like the place has taken a turn for the worse since then, judging by this website (as found by Mike Ion). I’ve got issues with some of our local Tories, but almost without exception they are better than this one.

This evening somebody told me that, following the UAF’s visits to Bewbush, Ifield, West Green and Ifield West over the weekend to try and increase voter turnout at the elections, the BNP held a little protest at the Ifield shops.

When I saw this story in the paper the other day I really had to check it was April 10th and not April 1st, although anybody who tried to make it up as an April fool’s joke would have a pretty warped sense of humour.Â Apparently the BNP areÂ now actively chasing the Jewish vote […]

This evening I forgot one of the fundamental golden rules of attending AGMs – I got carried away and volunteered for something and now find myself on the committee of the Crawley Campaign Agaist Racism. The CCAR is a venerable organisation, now in its 31st year. Many of the firebrands who started it up are […]

The same person is standing in both Denne and Tilgate. The BNP have not stood in Tilgate before, as far as I know. There are also a couple of […]

I wanted to write something about this new BNP trade union, Solidarity – having seen it mentioned by Tom Watson, Mike Ion and others, but i was just too slow. It turns out that johninnit has said just about everything I could want to say about it already. He points out that anyone joining Solidarity […]

I have not watched Celebrity Big Brother, apart from a bit of the first one to make sure Teddy Sheringham wasn’t on it, but there is so much written about it that I sometimes feel as if I have seen it. Doing a search on Big Brother stories on the Guardian web site, sorted in […]
