    I was kind of disappointed by the early comments on the metafilter thread about McAuley’s post. They obviously hadn’t even heard of him, or understood the direction he was coming from. It mad me laugh to read some ignoramus say ‘This McAuley person obviously hasn’t read much SF’!

    I think it says something about the importance the BNP has to our political system that the fact that the party is in the final stages of disintegrating has to be kept secret. With no BNP to hate, everything would be out of balance.
