UK: I am not surprised…
To the dismay of Labour backbenchers, even the extremist British National Party beat their candidate in the contest to fill a parliamentary seat vacated by Boris Johnson, the new mayor of London. The Conservatives held on to the seat in Oxfordshire, defeating (in
order of finish) candidates for the Liberal Democrats, the Greens, the BNP and Labour.
even if it’s worrying, because it means that, as happened in France with PS and Front National, the Labour people are probably more and more voting for BNP. It was also significant because it was Gordon’s first anniversary as PM. Bad way to celebrate it.
