The government is to single out Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons, the British National party\’s two newly elected representatives in the European parliament, for special treatment, denying them some of the access and information afforded to all the other 70 UK MEPs.
Under new guidelines drafted in Whitehall and in the Foreign Office following the June elections to the European parliament, the two BNP leaders will be kept at arms\’ length from the kind of routine contacts and socialising that take place between British civil servants and MEPs in Brussels and Strasbourg.
Look, Griffin and Brons are indeed vile little toads, their ideas and ideals repulsive.
But can we get this relationship between the voters, the politicians and the civil service straight please? The voters get to vote for any dumb shit they want. Those politicians who get elected get the same treatment from the civil service as all the rest: no, they don\’t get different treatment because the C.S. Wallahs will have to hold their noses while they speak to them.
The civil service is hired and paid to aid the politicians we the people, in all our glorious stupidity, elect. Yes, even vile toads, the repulsive and the thick as shit.
How else do you think John Prescott managed to get his office staffed?
