With the local election campaign in full swing and doorstepping at fever pitch here in the Northern Wastes, I was stunned to come home this evening and discover my second party candidate leaflet of the season. So far, I’ve had a Tory one, and this risible, miserable specimen from everyone’s favourite little Englanders, the BNP.
They’ve obviously undergoing some kind of identity crisis, as although the candidate lives locally, he has nothing to say about local issues at all. The flyer is quite mild, barely mentioning the favourite hobbyhorses of the far-right, and is clearly a standard issue with space for the candidate’s own text. Sadly, Terence can’t have proofread his and in turn gives an inkling of how much he cares about our council. I wonder, is that the Yorkshire branch of the Majorowicz clan or the Bristol?
If anyone from Labour would like to let us know they’re alive, it would be nice. I can understand the Liberal Democrats being in hiding, but Labour… oh dear.
