They come over here....
Easily the funniest story of the week has to be the BNP's launch of its European campaign in London. The witless fascists used the iconic image of a WWII Spitfire, oblivious that the markings identified it as a plane flown in the 303 squadron by Polish fighters.
The BNP want all Eastern European workers to be barred from Britain. Curious then, as the Unite against Fascism website notes, that they should choose an image from the Battle of Britain, where 1 in 5 pilots were non-British. During the Battle of Britain, Poles shot down 203 Luftwaffe aircraft, or 12% of total German losses.
As one comment on the Facebook site I bet we can find 1,000,000 people who loathe the BNP observed, the BNP's slogan has to be "Coming over here, taking our Spitfires, winning our war. Bastards."
You can see the original story here. This is the first and last time this blog shows a picture of Nick Griffin. Or indeed has a link to the Daily Mail.
