BNP Algebra

January 16th, 2010 · Posted by Skuds in Politics · 4 Comments · Politics

Either Nick Griffin is barking mad or he thinks that one white person is worth about 2272 non-white people.  The two are not mutually exclusive though.From Nick Griffin’s Facebook page:

While the Haiti earthquake is terrible, the winter death toll in Britain will be similar. No aid here though.

Hmm… from the Times on Jan 7th

Weather-related death toll rises to 22 as Britain braces for coldest night yet

From the BBC web site

Tuesday’s earthquake has left as many as 45,000-50,000 people dead.

45,000 to 50,000 is about the smallest estimate I have seen.

Of course, it is possible that Dick-I-beg-your-pardon-Nick Griffin is unable to distinguish between large numbers; he may have a counting system like several remote tribes are reputed to have that goes “1, 2, 3, many”.

[Thought I posted this the other day, but it ended up in the drafts.  Must have done it just when my internet connection went down.]

    And some of the winter-related death toll, if the past is anything to go by, will be as much ‘thoughlessness-related’ as people ignore safety warnings and some common sense to try walking on ice, or driving at stupid speeds in driving snow…. The people of Haiti are suffering almost as much from the problems of past and present regimes as from the effects of the most recent natural disaster but that can hardly be called thoughlessness

    Well yes, and with so many people staying at home or leaving the car at home, and most of the driving being done a lot slower it is even possible that lots of road deaths were avoided.

    But I don’t think bodycounts are the point. It is not about how many people died in Haiti. Being pragmatic, they are beyond help. It is the millions without homes, food or even water – and in some cases without family.

    We might have moaned about the cold here, but we are doing it mostly from warm houses and with no chance of starving or catching typhoid from poisoned water. Comparing our situation to Haiti is just crass.
