Nice Chap

"Thoughtful, intelligent and committed"




UPDATE - only vaguely related, but Billy Bragg was in Bradford last week playing the East-Ender card for all it was worth.

"Where I come from in Barking we have a BNP councillor. One morning we woke up and 52 per cent of the people in a Labour ward had voted for the BNP. That was a bit of a shock"

How about "Where I came from in Barking (before I left for rural Dorset when the kids came along), they have a BNP councillor. One morning in September 2004 they woke up and 52 per cent of the people in a Labour ward had voted for the BNP. That was a bit of a shock. For them. But I'd long gone."

The idea of soliciting Doherty's thoughts on any matter do have something of "The collected wisdom of Sid Vicious" about them. It's a shame really because he's obviously a bright guy underneath all the heavy drugs.

BTW, surely any protest or concert in Trafalgar Square would have to be approved by the Mayor's Office. How likely would it be for "Don't vote Labour" concert to get approval do you suppose?

One would hope Mr Bragg has no occasion to encounter the Dorset police.
