Wretched news and good news

–Andrew Brons of the racist and fascist BNP has been elected to a seat in the European Parliament.

–Despite widespread predictions otherwise, Hezbollah and its allies in a pro-Syrian coalition lost Lebanon’s parliamentary elections to a pro-Western coalition. Did Obama’s Cairo speech play a role?

More to come.

Update: BNP leader Nick Griffin has also won an EU seat.
