War veterans and the BNP

05.29.09 | Comment?

I’m pleased a WWII veteran has stood up to be counted in the fight against the BNP, at Harry’s Place via the Hope not Hate campaign.

Just for the record, in my own fairly recent article on the BNP, I invoked the memory of my now long dead, peace loving father, who sullied his conscience forever by serving in the RAF (Lancasters) and bombing people in Dresden ‘for the greater good’.

My father would have been appalled at the thought that the spirit of what he battled his own consience to fight against, 65 years ago, would be up for election on Thursday.

He wouldn’t have cared much for the arguments of a party run by a holocaust denier that they’re not Nazis really. My dad knew what was what.
