The Rise of the Right

I have to admit, I didn't vote yesterday. I had kind of intended to, not that I had much preference, but - despite getting up at 6:30 - was busy for most of the day.

The BBC reports the BNP are growing in support. It's hard to know what to make of this - it could simply be protest voting, of a sort arguably encouraged by our FPTP electoral system where there's very little responsibility.

In any case, it's an excuse to link to Pop Will Eat Itself's classic warning about the 'rise of the right' Ich bin ein Auslander (video, lyrics).
