Griffin invokes the Nazis

BNP leader Nick Griffin compares British Generals to Nazi war criminals – he really doesn’t like people criticising his party. As the BBC reports:

Cameron to impose all-women shortlists

Is David Cameron on a mission to neuter local Conservative associations?  First open primaries and caucuses, now all-women shortlists imposed from above.  Seems like those long-standing members just can’t be trusted to choose the right candidate any more.

As the Telegraph tells us:

The Conservatives will impose all-women shortlists on constituencies selecting new candidates after January. A significant number of MPs are expected to announce their resignations at the next election in the wake of the expenses scandal.
