On the political front, I'd shout out to Margaret Hodge. Well done to her for taking on and thoroughly defeating the odious Griffin, and addressing this in her speech.
Hear, hear to that one. Delighted with the BNP no-show everywhere I've seen, in fact - but yes, Hodge had I think had enough of a shock from the BNP threat to realise that the lofty strategy of all the national parties till very recently (of trying to pretend immigration was a non-issue with the electorate on the ground because they have been frightened of losing votes by making a positive case for why it's not generally a problem) had failed. She took Griffin on head on and demonstrated that the electorate are neither nor as stupid nor as prejudiced as Griffin pretends, and she deserves the result.
