No fascists here

We've just had the European elections, and a fairly dismal set of results they present, with that dismal bunch of little Englanders, the UK Independence Party winning the popular vote.

But I can't be too disappointed because the election saw the wipe-out of the British National Party. Last time around, they picked up so much of the protest vote they ended up with two MEPs, one of them in my consituency. Today's results mean that, after today, I no longer have a fascist as my elected political representative in the European Parliament.

And that's something worth celebrating.
