Well, after all of the build up, this evening will see the BBC ratchet its quest for ratings up another notch with the appearance of Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, on Question Time. The protests that have been promised by anti fascists and supporters of the far right in this country have started to materialise and the real victims in the short term will be the residents of W12.
There have been warnings today of the increased likelihood of racially motivated attacks, and where are these more likely to happen than in W12 this evening. Filled as it will be with drunken psyched up skin headed yobs - in one of the most ethnically diverse areas in London.
I hope your evenings are not too ruined. On a personal level I am writing this from under a mango tree in Burundi, central Africa. I am here for two weeks for work and go to Congo on saturday. I wonder how many of the bomber jacketed Neo-Nazis that will be staining the Bush this evening actually realise that they are all descended from African ancestors, who lived very near to where I am sitting right now?
