The BNP and other stuff

memnet.tripod.com
I was highly depressed that the racist BNP won two of our 69 allocated seats in the European Parliament. I had thought to link to a youtube snippet of their leader, but I can't bear to listen, so why should I inflict it on you? He drones on about indiginous population and a return to a pre-1948 racial mix. One of my great-grandmothers was born visibly black british in 1886. Somehow, I think she falls outside his definition.

I stayed up watching the results come in this morning and despite the fact that he's Conservative, I think Daniel Hannan's speech deserves an audience.



I'm still travelling to London on Wednesday for my conference. At the moment the Tube strike is still on, but apparently other services are being stepped up to compensate. Hopefully I'll be able to find a restaurant open to eat in.

I should think so. There are buses after all, so people should still be able to get to work.

I've read that Boris is laying on 100 extra buses. Luckily I should be able to get by on foot (albeit in the pouring rain) as I am coming into Euston and staying over on Russell Square.

OT: The SSHG Quiz
Sometimes it seems as though Snape is always pulling Granger away from her Hogwarts leaving ceremony so they can get married.  The stories on today's quiz_sshg show a more convoluted route to happiness.  In this quiz, Snape has been married or engaged to another woman prior to hooking up with Miss Granger.

Your story, Marriage Vows, fits this theme perfectly and is featured as quote #4 on today's SSHG Quiz. Please accept this Featured Author's banner as our way of thanking you for the enjoyment your story have given to its many readers.
