Far-right Party 'imports' candidates for Scottish elections
14 of the 32 candidates standing in the name of fascist Party, the BNP, according to this article, live 'south of the border' (no, not Mexico - Ed), but just happen to have 'Scottish sounding names'. In Highland and Islands region, the BNP candidate is called Roger Robertson, described as a a 'south-east England organiser'. I am proud that this odious political Party (aka fascist thugs) has so little support in Scotland that it has to use subterfuge to procure candidates and has to use deceit to hire fund-raising venues. Of course the whole purpose of this futile exercise, because their electoral prospects are 'zilch', is to qualify for a free TV advert for their noisome policies - but there is an off-switch on the television and there are sufficient alternative channels for it to be unnecessary for any sentient being to have to sit through their five minutes of fame.
