It was a miserable night, and the mood at the club this morning is dark, but we will pick ourselves up dust ourselves down etc and move on.
But last night also had a bright side. The Cobblers lent their support to the "Hope not Hate" campaign with write ups in the programme, and both sides wearing hope not hate t-shirts whilst they warmed up as substitutes in front of the main stand. Anjona Roy CEO of Northamptonshire Race Equality Council and Kathy Smith from the local Hope not Hate campaign attended the game to help spread the message. And the message was clear "Don't vote for the BNP"
As we approach the Euro and local elections on June the 4th we should all be concerned that for a whole host of reasons that the BNP expect to do well at the polls and that Britain will probably be shamed in having it's first fascist Euro MEP's elected to Brussells.
Our job between now and June 4th is to expose the BNP for what they really are, nasty right wing fascists filled with hatred, and in denial about the future of multi cultural Britain. So if you want to know the truth about Britain's Nasty Party then click on the link below.
For instance could anyone really vote for someone who said the following?
"I am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that six million Jews were gassed and cremated and turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also once held that the Earth was flat … I have reached the conclusion that the 'extermination' tale is a mixture of Allied wartime propaganda, extremely profitable lie, and latter witch-hysteria"
If not then what is Party Leader Nick Griffin who uttered the above rubbish in a courtroom in 1998 doing on the ballot paper?
On Multi cultural Britain he offers us the following advice:
"Without the White race, nothing matters. [Other right-wing parties] believe that the answer to the race question is integration and a futile attempt to create 'Black Britons', while we affirm that non-Whites have no place here at all and will not rest until every last one has left our land"
The British National Party is becoming a household name. In the process it is trying to appear more moderate and respectable. But it is not. Scratch the surface and you find the same old racists lurking . It is run by hardline nazis who as you see above believe that the Holocaust did not happen. Its rule book remains firmly entrenched in the principles of racial superiority and the banning of racial integration.
The BNP may have got cleverer but its real politics remain the same.
So if Northampton Town last night did it's bit in support of it's opponents then perhaps is wasn't so bad a night after all?
