When I was still a teacher, I was publicly told off by the Headteacher for placing posters round the school urging students of a voting age, and others to pressure their parents, to vote in order to prevent the BNP from winning a seat. Of course, as a government employee I was supposed to be impartial and fighting against discrimination and hatred, when it emanates from a legitimate political body, is not the responsibility of a teaching professional. It didn't, however, prevent me from writing a little blog on my old website, that went like this:
"Save laughing at, and feeling superior to, the idiots who vote for, and the air-wasters who belong to, the British National Party, one feels powerless to do much about them. In much of the country they pose little threat. But in the London Borough of Redbridge, in neighbouring Barking & Dagenham and in Epping Forrest, they are unfortunately a real, and in some cases, growing force. What can you do to stop them? Simple! Get out there and vote in every election you can. It doesn't matter who you vote for, as long as its not the BNP. Use your vote wisely – stop the BNP! Visit www.stopthebnp.org.uk "
