BNP backers aren't victims.

Byline: Brian Reade

I WOKE up on Monday morning to hear that I am now being represented by a racist.

Nick Griffin, a one-time Holocaustdenier, convicted of inciting racial hatred, who won't allow blacks or Asians in his party, now speaks for me, and everyone else in the northwest, in Europe.

And there he was, on Radio 4, speaking. Outlining one of his major gripes with the BBC. The fact that they have a black Friar Tuck in the Robin Hood TV drama.

I switched it off, not knowing if he moved on to such burning issues as Chinese over-representation in the CBeebies team, or the need to rename Blackpool, Whitepool.

I feel sick about being represented by a racist, especially as it's been brought about through the apathy of fellow northerners who I know would rather die than vote fascist.

But I'm also sick of people feeling sorry for those who elected Griffin. As though they're victims left with no option but a protest vote.

Since when did you punish an MP who claimed expenses for a massage chair by giving power to men who would march behind Adolf Hitler? We can blame a lazy liberal elite and sleazy MPs all we want. But don't lose sight of the thousands in our midst who voted for a party whose primary wish is to send all darkskinned British people back to their ancestors' country of origin.

Adults who are either thick, or racist. Or both.
