What did they expect?

A town just three miles from the scene of major race riots is set to become the first in the UK to have a BNP member as its mayor, reports The Daily Mail. And doesn't that tell you something about the state of British politics?

However, as one of our forum members points out, the Daily Mail is either being economical with the truth or have not researched it well enough. The guy in question is a town councillor, he is going to be deputy mayor, not the mayor and it is a 12 month position which is rotated around the town councillors.
