BNP

I had mixed feelings about Thursday’s Question Time which I watched with friends.On the whole I think it was better to have Griffin on the programme where he was clearly held to account by the panel and the audience but I feel that a more varied set of questions would have shown up the BNP on other issues.
I am not altogether surprised that they appear to have made members from the programme-a fact I deplore.
As Chris Hunhe said there clearly are social problems to be answered and where other political parties make an effort to deal with them they can beat the BNP. The BNP didn’t increase their vote to win the Euroseats-Labour lost it.

Back from Bournemouth and raring to go.

Inspiring Conference and good to see the opinion polls rising – the Sunday Times commented we were neck and neck with Labour.  It is clear to me , though I don’t suppose it will be to the politically otherwise committed people reading this, that the combination of Nick Cleg and Vince Cable with Chris Hunhe at the Home Office would be far better for this country than Cameron and Osbourne.

ANOTHER ORWELLIAN DIKTAT BY GOVERNMENT

The latest people added to those who need to undergo security checks are to be parents who take a group of children to Youth Clubs or after school activities.  This is suspicion gone mad.  As author Philip Pullman says it is “corrosive to healthy social interaction”.  I am glad to say that the Liberal Democrat shadow Home Office Minister Chris Hunhe has come out strongly against such a requirement calling it, quite rightly, “a disproportionate response that risks deterring volunteers.”

OSBOURNE IGNORES ‘easyBARNET’ EXAMPLE

I rarely (never? well hardly ever!)approve of shadow Chancellor Osbourne but ‘The Times (Fri 11 Sep, p.28 notes “George Osbourne cited a number of Conservative Councils yesterday but Barnet which has been dubbed ‘EasyCouncil’ admits to a relentless drive for efficiency was not one of them.’ ”

Quite right too. Their ‘no frills’ airline scheme of which the Tory Leader Cllr Mike Freer is so proud will cut services in all directions and, as usual, with this administration people who can pay will jump the queue of the merely needy
