Pot to kettle... come in please.

Apparently the British National Party have gone running to the police calling for the prosecution of Billy Bragg for calling them names and apparently "inciting violence" against them. In an article in The Guardian, Bragg was quoted as saying he was in favour of an elected House of Lords even if it meant the BNP winning a seat. "It would shine a torch into the dirty little corner where the BNP defecate on our democracy, and that would be much more powerful than duffing them up in the street - which I'm also in favour of." Apparently this has deeply offended the genteel BNP leadership, who of course, have never seen the inside of a courthouse in their lives, although Tom Watson's archives paint a very different, and more accurate picture of the thugs in suits.
