Quote of the Day 28.3.2006

"Respect's latest campaign is to liken Condoleezza Rice, who is visiting the UK this week, to - get this - the wartime fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley. There is, I suppose, the merest tangential and chronological connection between the two. When Mosley was conducting a demagogic racist campaign in West London in 1958 against the background of the Notting Hill riots, Ms Rice was experiencing racism at first hand as a small child in segregated Alabama. It would be easy to say that Respect lacks a sense of history and decency, but that would be too kind. Look closely at the organisation, its methods and propaganda, and you find what is, alongside the British National Party, the most prominent racist and fascist organisation in Britain today." - Oliver Kamm
