In all the sound and fury of the next few weeks in ‘party’ politics, several more important debates will be going on about issues which more directly impact working people’s lives.
One of the these is the hopelessly inadequate provision of affordable public housing. This issue probably more than any other has helped promote the agenda of extreme right wing authoritarian politics. In the UK this means the fascist British National Party. BNP party leader Nick Griffin and his associates have been able to successfully exploit an existing and understandable fear of losing access to what little public resource is available, based on race hate.
My colleague Mark Hillary has made this mash-up video about the BNP – and if you are interested in why he did it, you can read his reasoning here at the more info box. I like what he has made, even if he has broken Godwin’s Law.
