We're still doing it for your benefit, you know.
Our 2012 election campaign really kicks off this weekend with a series of leafleting sessions in key wards across the country.
Oh really, HnH is putting up candidates then?
Our 2012 election campaign really kicks off this weekend with a series of leafleting sessions in key wards across the country. Our initial focus is on those wards in which the BNP is defending. A successful election cycle from our perspective could leave the BNP with just two borough councillors and one county councillor.
Ah. Not quite. They're campaigning against someone. I wonder how that's being paid for. All properly accounted for, I'm sure, with prompt and accurate returns to the Electoral Commission.
Our big weekend of action is going to be over the weekend of 14/15 April. Over those two days the HOPE not hate campaign will be linking up with local acitivists to deliver our tabloid newspapers.
That sounds impressive. Who's printing and paying for that then? Not the Trinity Mirror group, surely.
Very dodgy, all of this.
During the 2008 London Mayoral/GLA election campaign, my trade union emailed all of its London members pleading with us not to vote for the BNP. They got a very nasty flea in their ear from the membership and are, I sincerely hope, unlikely to try the same trick again. "But we're not trying to tell anybody who to vote for", they whined when challenged. Telling people who not to vote for is much the same thing, chaps.
You know all those government and pressure group edicts screaming shrilly about how 'We must NOT...'?
Well, they have the opposite effect on most people.
