Posted by charliemarks on January 23, 2008

BNP Wives is a documentary that demonstrates the fascists have learnt nothing from previous embarrassing encounters with the media.

(go to Google Video)

A more apt title for the programme would have been BNP Women as only one of them is married to a BNP member, and though a lot of it is old material in comedy terms (you think they’d be prepared for some of the questions and be a little more polite with members of the public!) it’s worth watching to compare what the women say with the glowing review on the BNP website, where the three are described as “fine ambassadors” for the party…

BNP Exposed: The Secret Agent

Re Brand: Nazi Boy

Russell Brand spends the weekend with BNP Youth leader Mark Collett.

Rule By Disaster

Posted by Dave (The Void) on September 10, 2007

Nine eleven changed everything. Didn’t it?

Come September – Arundhati Roy

This renowned 2002 lecture (74 mins) to the Lannan Foundation disusses nationalism, capitalism, and a century of bloody Septembers. Witty, moving and informative, it was later reinterpreted as the documentary film ‘We; see also the subsequent interview with Howard Zinn.

Transcript follows.
