Bit of Politics - Please don't Switch off!


On May 1st there will be local elections held throughout England and Wales
In Stoke-on-Trent we face the malevolent presence of the British National Party. I love my city, but the one aspect I am ashamed about is the fact we have a such a big presence from this racist, hateful and divisive "political" party. In our city council, the BNP has the second largest number of seats giving them a veil of respectability. I think this is unique throughout the country. Their bigotry is not just confined to those of different race or religion, they also espouse homophobic views and are certainly no friends of the Transgender Community.

I agree, but sadly they look like making gains in London even gaining a seat on the GLA.
