Joe Solo speaks up

I've been alarmed recently by the number of people I know with sympathies toward at least some of the BNP's policies. I suppose there's a kind of innate snobbery in my thinking that you'd have to be stupid not to see through it, but I know people of above average intelligence who are so utterly disillusioned with mainstream politics that they've given doorstep time to these morons. I have a friend who says this happens after a long spell of Labour in power (it certainly did in the late 70's) because people react in extremis to the Left by swinging to the Right. Personally I think that's a bad excuse for switching your brain off. Either way, it's time to nail the colours to the mast."
