There's a rather interesting article in today's Grauniad.

Annabel volunteers the opinion that Asian immigrants are a "bloody bore" while black people are "ghastly". "I'm a racist," she declares proudly. "We've got to keep little UK basically Anglo-Saxon."

She pauses, and asks whether I agree. "Well madam," I reply, "I am the central London organiser of the British National party ..." .


And also, as it happens, an undercover Guardian journalist. I'll be interested to see the BNP's comments on this.

Last night I was helping Alison pick up stuff for the solstice bash and we nearly got mown down by a high-speed reverser in the car park. This was the sort of reversing I'd do to get a hundred yards back to a passing place, not right outside a supermarket's front door. The driver mouthed "sorry" and sped off. I guess she didn't see us and didn't realise that we'd had to get out of her way.

Still, I got a New Statesman out of it - with an article by Clive Stafford Smith and a story by Ursula le Guin (thanks to whoever pointed that one out), so the risk was probably justified.
