The Bickerstaffe Record

Being Labour, The world beyond West Lancashire

Giving up on No.2

03.10.10 | 1 Comment

Regular readers will know that the Bickerstaffe Record was inordinately, ridiculously and vaingloriously proud of being voted in at no.2 on the national Total Politics awards for top councillor blogs, run by Total Politics magazine.

But some things are more important than inordinate, ridiculous and vainglorious pride.

If Total Politics magazine continues with its plan to publish a long interview with Nick Griffin, the racist head of the British National Party, I’ll be withdrawing from this year’s annual poll, and encouraging other Labour councillors to do likewise.

My reasons are set out here at the national blog I write for, in a collaborative post I have ‘signed’ and the drafting of I contributed to.
