The BNP and an impudent Ruskette
One of the problems with living abroad is that the gossip from home only gets filtered through very slowly. A received an e-mail from a friend in Wandsworth, London, yesterday that included the immortal paragraph:
I've been canvassing for the Lib Dems and suprisingly have not been met with derision on the door step. I expect the Tories to win but, it will delight you, to hear that Labour is in serious trouble. Their middle class support is switching to us while those of the working class, who will still bother to vote, would vote BNP if a candidate had stood. No suprises there but this will make you choke on your tortilla at the impudence of this : L... wants to vote BNP!
L... is his ex-wife and, wait for it, she's a fucking Russian. Well, she calls herself Ukrainian, but everyone knows that if you cross the Oder-Neisser line then you are in Russia so why bother memorising all these weird names?
Anyway, bring back the USSR and let's hear it for the Cold War.
