Subject: RE: BS: The problem at Mudcat? Moderated thread
A BNP thread on Mudcat was a very good thing because it enabled information about an intended BNP infiltration into Cecil Sharp House to be got to the lady running the EFDSS before rather than after the event. Still haven't heard what happened, though!

Strong argument for keeping it down to one thread just to keep the info in one place.

Understand Joe being dismayed or distressed at the animosity flying about. Worth recalling that the British are very much sensitised about fascism and Nazism. Comes of having the refugees arriving in the 30s, and having to fight Hitler from '39 onwards. Then we see essentially a Nazi party here!

OK, it was our fathers, or grandfathers for some nowadays, but you get the drift....

My personal guess - perhaps wishful thinking - is that the BNP lack the sort of demographic base the at the Nazis had - hundreds of thousands of desperate and hungry ex-soldiers and unemployed workers. That doesn't mean that they don't need to be very severely discouraged. And I shudder to think what could go wrong if the UK economy goes on sinking.

That said, I hope never to use foul language or personal insult as a substitute for argument or indeed otherwise.

I'd somehow utterly missed out on the anti-Christian thing, so no comment on that. I have friends who don't do monotheism for religious reasons, but not getting into *that* discussion...

As for the lady who was fired from being a church organist for being a witch...the sheer cheek of it.
