Ashamed to be British. Ashamed to be from Barnsley

The Hitler-Loving Nazi elected to represent Yorkshire in Europe.  I want to die.

We used to call it the People's Republic of South Yorkshire.  It was so Labour, so socialist, there was hardly any point anyone else campaigning.

And now we see for ourselves, in our lifetimes, how fascism can take hold.  Even with twenty-first century communications, we see how lies and distortion can be allowed to stand, if faced by total incompetence and a sense that voters are being ignored by those in power.

16% of voters in Barnsley voted BNP.  

One in six of the people I grew up with, had a pint with, went to school with, voted for a fucking Nazi.  

This cunt used to be the leader of the British National Front.  He's an 'academic' who has attempted to develop a 'scientific' rationale for racism.  He led marches where people shouted "we've got to get the blacks out" and was once arrested and convicted of behaviour likely to cause a breach of the peace after being heard chanting "death to jews".  

If you call your party the National Front, it kind of suggests you agree with everything Hitler said and did.  If there's any doubt, the party was founded on Hitler's birthday, for fuck's sake. 

And this is who the former socialists of Yorkshire have elected as their ambassador to Europe, while Hitler's actions are still well within living memory. 

Shame on the people of Barnsley.  Shame on a supposedly Labour government - this happened not because of "mass immigration", which doesn't exist, but because you've spent so fucking long licking the arse of Daily Mail-reading 'middle England' you've completely forgotten about the people who were once the backbone of your support.  Hang your head in shame Brown - and you Blair.  I want to throw up.


  1. it's bollocks, what are we going to do about it?

  2. First I'm going to write to the Barnsley Chronicle.

    And if that doesn't work I'm going to find this bastard and kick his head in.

  3. Now they have a job to do they'll be exposed for what they are and the people will turn against them.

    Have a little faith Pete...


  4. They. Did. WHAT????

    Thank god I don't have any reasons to go back there these days. Another cherished-if-naive article of childhood belief broken.

  5. Aha, Janiejynx, just figured out with a little google who you are! Thanks for your comments. And thanks for buying my book. I can imagine your disgust at this sad story (the Fascists not the India Pale Ale stuff). Other than that, hope you're well. x
