Going through an old hard drive yesterday, I came across the files for the “Nick Griffin is NOT my MEP” design I did when that disgusting little racist toad slimed his way to a seat in the European Parliament. It seemed appropriate to update the design.
VoteMatch lets you check what you want from your politicians against what they’re offering, in this case in next month’s Euro elections. Unsurprisingly, I agree most with the Greens. It’s always a relief to find you’ve chosen the right party.
I agreed with more BNP policies than UKIP ones. Don’t worry, they still came out last and second last overall.
I had a panic yesterday, because I’m not sure whether I’m registered to vote, and the European elections are coming up. I filled in an online form, and should soon be getting the paperwork needed to check and, if necessary, fix the problem.
Here’s one reason why those of us in the North West should vote Green-
I was voting Green anyway, but the chance to get rid of Nick Griffin makes it even better.
If you’re considering voting for a slightly less racist party with a gurning toff as leader, just bear in mind that UKIP aren’t very good at keeping track of their own money* and choose candidates who like to victimise six year olds and call for enforced sterilisation of the sort of people they think shouldn’t be breeding (can’t find the link for that right now, I’ll try to provide it later).
Maybe I won’t wait for the paperwork to arrive. Maybe I should use this site to download a registration form and get it sent off.
*That’s the euphemistic way of saying that Nigel Farage has been accused of raking in expenses and donations which may have been used for anything other than party business. They’re still allegations at the moment, the “other” expenses may turn out to be legitimate. You never know.
So Nick Griffin- leader of the two men and a senile dog that is the remnants of the BNP- sent a believably stupid tweet threatening “drama” outside the home of a gay couple who just won a discrimination case against a B&B owner.
It seems like a good time to remind everyone of the “Nick Griffin is not my MEP” design I whipped up after he won his seat-
On 24 August 2005, [BNP candidate for the London Assembly] Mr Eriksen wrote: “I’ve never understood why so many men have allowed themselves to be brainwashed by the feminazi myth machine into believing that rape is such a serious crime … Rape is simply sex. Women enjoy sex, so rape cannot be such a terrible physical ordeal.
“To suggest that rape, when conducted without violence, is a serious crime is like suggesting that forcefeeding a woman chocolate cake is a heinous offence. A woman would be more inconvenienced by having her handbag snatched.
“The demonisation of rape is all part of the feminazi desire to obtain power and mastery over men. Men who go along with the rape myth are either morons or traitors.”
Aside from the fact that anyone who uses the word “feminazi” is a moron of the highest order, this is just vile. Anyone who can vote in the London Assembly elections do your best to persuade everyone you know to vote against this arsehole.
In other BNP news, they say their “Truth Truck” was out in Salford today. Did anyone see the scumwagon, and were they cheers or jeers they were getting from bystanders?
A third of people asked by the website MyVoucherCodes said a picture of the BNP leader showed Peter Griffin. The makers of Family Guy haven’t commented on their character’s sideline as the leader of a bunch of racist arseholes.
In the same survey more people recognised a non-entity who’s best known for marrying a reality TV star than did the Prime Minister. It’s possible that Brown prefers it that way. And, if I’m honest, I’d have a hard time naming Nick Clegg if you showed me a picture of him.

Dear Mr Griffin,
We couldn’t help but notice that there was egg on your face (and on your suit jacket) on the day after you were elected MEP for North West England.
Please don’t leave egg on ours.
You wore a Poppy lapel badge during your news conference to celebrate your election victory. This was in direct contravention of our polite request that you refrain from politicising one of the nation’s most treasured and beloved symbols.
The Poppy is the symbol of sacrifices made by British Armed Forces in conflicts both past and present and it has been paid for with blood and valour. True valour deserves respect regardless of a person’s ethnic origin, and everyone who serves or has served their country deserves nothing less.
The Poppy pin, the Poppy logo, and the paper Poppy worn during Remembrance are the property, trademark and emblem of The Royal British Legion.
For nearly 90 years, The Royal British Legion has pursued a policy of being scrupulously above the party political fray. It is vital that everyone – the media, the public and our beneficiaries – know that we will not allow our independence to be undermined or our reputation impaired by being closely associated with any one political party. This is more important now than ever.
On May 27th, 2009, the National Chairman of The Royal British Legion wrote to you privately requesting that you desist from wearing the Poppy or any other emblem that might be associated with the Legion at any of your public appearances during the European Parliamentary election campaign.
He appealed to your sense of honour. But you have responded by continuing to wear the poppy. So now we’re no longer asking you privately.
Stop it, Mr Griffin. Just stop it.
The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is the nation’s leading Armed Forces charity providing care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. It is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces. It is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem, the red poppy.
From the Whitechapel message boards.
This may or may not last here. Even if it doesn’t, then if you read it before it goes, please yank it and distribute.
I’m possibly not the only person it’ll occur to, due to ideaspace, and I hope it goes far and wide anyway.
Right. Here goes:
1. The BNP winning European parliament seats means they have a budget to employ staff and various sub-contractors.
2. These budgets and staff positions are subject to anti-discrimination laws, as they come from public funds.
3. Watch out for when these positions are advertised. If anyone sees them advertised, chuck the ads about on as many social networks, blogs etc as possible.
4. Man the Harpoons – If you fall outside of the BNP’s discriminatory membership criteria, due to being black, Jewish, whatever, apply. If you are white British and want to help out this plan anyway, just spread the idea about.
5. When you/they don’t get the job, take it to an employment tribunal.
Even if you’re not especially bothered about taking the BNP to an employment tribunal, spreading this idea about, and forcing them to consider it and raaage over how unfair to the poor ickle racialists it is, it’s still funny.
Ms Laudanum reminded me of Spreadshirt, a T-shirt printing company based in the UK. The first design I’ve uploaded is yesterday’s “Nick Griffin is NOT my MEP” one so now you can be doubly patriotic- protest an arsehole who doesn’t represent Britain whilst buying from a British company. (I make a little on every sale as well.)
Visit the Spinneyhead shop at Spreadshirt.
BNP candidates for the European and local elections are racist idiots. This is not a revelation is it. But it’s something that needs to be repeated regularly because some people haven’t figured it out yet.
Only recently has the country started to feel it can celebrate St. George’s Day without worrying that some might think they’re being racist. Sadly, a bunch of idiots want to spoil all that hard work- the BNP intend to turn up to the St. George’s parade at the end of the month and sell “patriotic merchandise”.
If I remember, I’ll be there. But I’ll be ignoring the bigots.
