My thoughts on the BNP election victory

There's been an awful lot of talk about the election of Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons from the BNP to the EU Parliament. The MSM have been falling over themselves to give various political luminaries the chance to say how "sickened" or "horrified" they are by the thought that these people have been elected by British voters.

The first thing that crosses my mind is that a lot of these people - such as Nick Clegg - are supporters of the shitty PR voting system that allows for fringe parties to get elected. If you want PR, then get used to parties like the BNP winning seats, because it will happen - but don't then blame the British people for the crappy voting system you introduced.

The other thing that struck me was that if we weren't members of the EU then the BNP wouldn't be sending BNP members to Brussels to attend the mother of all mickey-mouse parliaments.

Don't blame the British people for their election - blame PR and Ted Heath!

I agree with the two points you have made Stan, but believe another important one needs to be made.
None of the main stream parties have honestly addressed the elephant-in-the-room question, immigration.
Nor do I expect them to, until we can get some honesty and accountability back into politics we're fecked.
