The aftermath of a tragedy always carries sick profiteers. Today comes London’s vultures in the shape of the BNP.
The British National Party has used a photograph of the bombed London bus for an election leaflet.
“Maybe now it’s time to start listening to the BNP,” says the slogan alongside the photo in a leaflet for a council by-election in Barking, east London.
Conservative David Davis continued the Conservative’s mature response to this disaster by slamming the tactic. “This tasteless and bigoted leaflet shows the depths to which the BNP have to sink.” A terror attack isn’t about party politics – unless you’re a cynical opportunist who thinks the first response should be calling for Blair and Bush’s resignation (a certain Mr. G) or a miserable little racist party trying to stir up hatred in the face of the thing they hate most – people coming together.
In memory of everyone who died – I hope this will open people’s eyes to the fascist nature of the BNP.
