Random Public Quote Of The Weekend

I got off my scrawny arse and lent some time to Libertarian Party candidate Martin Cullip yesterday. Handing out political leaflets is an odd experience if you've never done it - surprisingly less insult strewn than I had expected too - and I could write a whole piece about the strangers I met. Perhaps I will do one day.

For now, though, a comment from a Sri Lankan Brit which had me at first confused before being doubled up in laughter, deserves a wider audience. He'd read the leaflet and asked about policies. Quite liked them in fact.

He: The thing is, the three main parties are all the same. Who wants to vote for them?
Me: Exactly.
He: I'm going to vote BNP.
Me: BNP? Really?
He: Yes, because if they get in, they will repatriate me out of this bloody country!
And with a wink and a smile, he was off.

Made my day.

D'ya think the BNP would repatriate me? Maybe to the Bahamas or somewhere nice like that :)

Spoken like a proper Brit. That's integration working for you.

I've heard the same thing from people of various ethnic origins at work!

It always makes me smile though.
