Local Election Results: Today toady to BNP, tardy on Greens

I start the day with email To the Today programme (

In the 7.00 - 7.30 am cycle, covering local election results, you were pleased to mention the BNP and have its leader on to speak, unchallenged, yet made no mention of the Green Party.

For your information:
The Green Party has so far added 18 more Pricipal Authority Councillors to its previous figure of 71, giving an overnight total of 89.

I would remind you that the politics of the BNP led to genocide and huge destruction of life and property in this country and throughout the world between the years of 1939 and 1945, while the Green Party offers the only political and economic programme designed for a sustainable future.

What conclusions am I to draw about the mindset of the Today programme planners and decision makers from this state of affairs?

Anyone interested in these issues might well be interested in this site - - which is collecting responses from MPs (as well as the public) as to WHY they think the BNP is making such gains, and what they think can be done to stop them.

It's from a political theatre company who have a play on in the West End later this month which tackles the issues head on. Very timely and very worth checking out...
