The Sunday version of the Daily Star has picked up the Steve Squire porn shop-date rape drug selling story.
However it is a sign of the dramatic decline experienced by the British National Party that even this down market newspaper which specialises is sleaze (but the one naturally most favoured by the BNP’s voting demographic) could not be bothered to make much of it.
Four years ago, when the BNP seemed to be a threat and had a credible chance of winning a seat on the Greater London Assembly, the BNP was big news. Now the final indignity is that no one gives a damn.
This ‘smear’ story – every detail of which is true, notice – folds in together a far-out open Neo Nazi who is standing for the miniscule British People’s Party, and a local BNP candidate who was found pictured giving a Nazi salute (there is always at least one of those every year). The Star couldn’t even be bothered to give much space to the BNP’s London Mayoral candidate Carlos Cortiglia, who supports Argentina’s claim to the Falkland Islands. Carlos’s internet sex swinging doesn’t get a look in. Steve Squire-Mendoza’s seedy Soho sex shop and his date rape drug selling activities get a mention but that is about it. The BNP is officially old news. It is well past it sell-by date. It is an ex-party.
There's only one thing worse than being talked about and that's not being talked about. The establishment media cannot be bothered to talk about the BNP even in negative terms.
They know the BNP does not stand an earthly chance of getting anyone elected to the Greater London Assembly. It’s over. No one is interested anymore.
