Sundays can be pretty dull so I like to have a laugh where possible. Thanks then should go to Nick Cohen who produced this cornflake-spluttering moment for me in the Observer this morning:
"I have never admired journalists who issue cocksure predictions of who will win which contest or what will happen to the country next; usually, they are smuggling in prejudices under the guise of impartial forecasts and pretending what they would like to happen inevitably must and will happen."
Ha ha ha. What kind of cocksure partisan would do that eh Nick?
Still, at least Cohen's claims make sense. The same can't be said of Simon Darby who now wants to claim the BNP as a separate race:
"Members of the far-right BNP have complained to police about a joke Jo Brand cracked on Live At The Apollo.
"The comic was questioned by officers after the group’s deputy leader, Simon Darby, claimed that the gag amounted to incitement to cause racial harassment. Bizarrely, he claimed: ‘The BNP is technically an ethnic group.’"
Well it certainly would explain a few things.
