Greens fight BNP and get Joanna Lumley's backing

Joanna Lumley, fresh from shaming the Labour government into giving justice to the Gurkhas has come out in support of the Green Party and publicly backed Green MEP Caroline Lucas http://southeast.greenparty.org.uk/region/southeast/news/joanna-lumley-backs-caroline-lucass-campaign.html

It also looks as if theonly way to stop the BNP Leader, Nick Griffin, from getting elected to Europe is to back the Green Party's MEP candidate Peter Cranie http://www.stopnickgriffin.org.uk/sites/stopnickgriffin and www.greenparty.org.uk.

What's infuriating is the way the media are hyping the BNP up out of all proportion to their popular support - see article in Independent today http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/leading-articles/leading-article-we-must-stop-exaggerating-the-threat-of-the-bnp-1690424.html.

Infuriating for us, i.e. the Greens, since we're way out-polling them yet do you think the press gives us the same coverage? I suppose violence and jackboots sell...Ho hum...
