A thousand years ago....

....there used to be an organisation in these parts called the Economic League, which compiled names of leftists etc, the better to have them blacklisted from certain areas of employment. Feel free to google it. If memory serves, Ford was among the big names that made use of its list.

Where this is of more than a little interest is that it was denounced as McCarthyist and the Parliamentary Labour Party was instrumental in killing it off / compelling it to morph into something else.

I wonder if its enemies will feel moved to denounce what is likely to happen to Griffin's lot now. I am not holding my breath.

Meanwhile, a brief word from Henry Maine: "....we may say that the movement of the progressive societies has hitherto been a movement from Status to Contract".

The principle should be the same. This "outing" business is fraught. Approval depends on whether we like the group or not.

As some wise individual once put it, there are precious few of us who have not done something that could not be made to look terrible on the front page of the News of the World.

As I said on my blog today, trying to ban the BNP from the school classroom will only make them stronger as they play the 'look at our evil government and how they censor us' card.
