Yeah, sorry about that

I feel solely responsible for the fiasco that was the European elections. By not getting myself onto the electoral roll at my new address in time, I singlehandedly allowed the BNP to gain seats. It is ALL MY FAULT. I'M SORRY. :(

Seriously, guys: UKIP have more MEPs than the Lib Dems and the Greens put together? What?

Other things that have freaked me out today include the results of a poll taken before last week's elections. "The average British voter is more likely to think that discrimination afflicts white people than Muslim or non-white people." Oh, and 2% of all BNP voters are Holocaust deniers, and 1% of voters for all other parties thought that "Hitler's Nazis killed around six million Jews Gypsies and other minorities in concentration and extermination camps in the 1930s and 40s" is "completely untrue". (link) I ... don't know what to think. My brain is shutting down in despair.
