and some good news.
Congratulations are definitely in order for Margaret Hodge who kept Nick Griffin at bay in Barking. Apparently, Griffin said he was defeated by the large turn out (think about it, Nick...) It is lovely to see Nick Griffin as a blurred figure in the background, I just wish I could be confident that that is where he and his party will stay! However, it is wonderful to have this indication of the innate decency of the British public.
As Margaret Hodge said,
"The lesson from Barking to the BNP is clear: Get out and stay out, you're not wanted here and your vile politics have no place in British democracy. Pack your bags and go!"
Don't you love it when someone knows not to mince their words?
