As so it is that the BNP have no supporters.
Just when the absurdity of politics couldn’t get any worse the BNP, upset at not getting any publicity over the expenses scandal, have decided to use actors on their campaign literature.
In the BNP’s attempts to turn away from their image of skin-head, tattoo riddled racists to a sharing, caring party (dependent, obviously, on where your family are from and the colour of your skin) have released campaign material with a doctor, OAPs, a soldier and a mother all saying they will be voting for the BNP.
I assume the scene went something like this – Nick Griffin says to one of his urchins: “Hey guys, I thought I had swine flu last week, so went to my GPs to get checked out. I knew I shouldn’t have gone out to that Mexican restaurant. Speaking to my GP, who I suggested should get back to his country because he was from India – I say India, actually he’s a third generation Indian, who’s father runs a local business that employs 2,000 local residents – I realised GPs are well respected and that we need to find some to support us.”
“Err… Sorry boss, we don’t have any GPs on our books. We’ve got a former radio DJ and a few policemen, but that’s it.”
“Damn. Well, let’s pretend we do.”
‘Ok, and we can pretend we’re moderate too!”
All amusing stuff, however, the BNP may find themselves in hot water with istockphoto.com, where the images came from.
