Shit Through My Letterbox















It's not everyday Nick Griffin writes to me begging for cash, but that's exactly what he's done. This morning thousands of BNP leaflets polluted Stokie letter boxes with their usual mix of lies and hate.

As most readers will be aware, the posties' union, the CWU has agreed a conscience clause with Royal Mail management that allows postal workers the right to refuse delivery of offensive material. As a racist, fascist organisation that would like nothing better than to see "Marxist" trade unions ground beneath the jack boot, the BNP have always fallen foul of the conscience clause. To get round this, the BNP have bundled their pathetic pleas for cash in an unbranded envelope featuring a glum, elderly couple and the legend "Ay up duck, thar's sum rate gud stuff fer Stokies in 'ere" (pictured). Don't be surprised if they use a repurposed envelope elsewhere.

There's no need to dwell on the begging letter itself, except to say Nazi Nick must think Stokies are as thick as his minions if he wants us to swallow the whopper that "tens of thousands of pensioners freeze to death in winter,
even here in Stoke" (underlining theirs).

NB: The BNP have provided a free post envelope with their material. I'm only sayin'.

Two things Phil:

I touched Nick Griffin.

How long have Notts phrases been used in Stoke?

Oh no, I accidentally superglued that freepost envelope to a brick and now I'll have to post it back empty....... I hope the excess postage isnt too much!

1) And what shall you be sending them in that free post envelope?

2) It's like the old bottle-in-the-paperbag gag. If the CWU were informed that that (to me, unfathomable) envelope contained BNP propaganda, would they stop delivering them or does the material have to be openly racist on its appearance?

If you still have a copy of the letter could you upload a photo of it to http://thestraightchoice.org

We are collating election material from all parties, but the BNP's stuff is hard to monitor.

Daniel, I was pleasantly surprised to find they said duck round these parts when I moved here from Derby many moons ago. And yes, sometimes blokes say it to blokes. Shug (as in short for sugar) is often substituted too.

* I would never advocate abusing the BNP's free post facility ;) But no, I haven't a clue what the CWU will do. But printing three colour double-sided sheets and having especially produced envelopes will have set them back quite a bit. Is it being paid for by cash recycled from the European gravy train?

Richard, when I get access to the scanner I will.

Anyone recognise the old couple? Will they turn out to be Polish?

They are from a photo stock library based in the UK:

You'd have thought they'd learned the lesson of the European election leaflet fiasco. It's a good job their viciousness is matched by utter incompetence.

When I first read the title, I thought:

"I'd rather not, if it's all the same to you."

(Sorry, it's Friday afternoon.)

Lol, it's not an invitation comrade.
