British Spin has the take on the local election results.But for me the whole thing is overshadowed though by the deeply depressing news from my hometown of Burnley where the racist British National Party is now the main party of opposition.
Spin’s stuff is pretty comprehensive but I really can’t generate much interest in the rest of the results after seeing a bunch of racist yobs leaping around in delight. Once Burnley was known for its fine football team and little else. Now it is becoming known as hotbed of racism.
Predictably the usual bollocks are being talked by people who know nothing about Burnley and its specific problems nor there own roles in creating this mess. I’ll post my(hopefully) more considered thoughts on this later on.
