Fascists Thwarted: Shove Ads Where Sun Don't Shine

Luke reports the success fo a campaign to stop Archant London papers carrying BNP adverts. There is some controversy in the comments. Would editorial coverage of the refusal in the likes of the Guardian boost BNP fortunes? Er, NO!

Back in Sedgefield last year Newsquest's Northern Echo did take this BNP advert but gave the money away to charity and ran a weaselly editorial comment about free speech. Hackney Mayor Jules Pipe dealt with that line in first link above.

Newsquest's parent company is called Gannet by the way. Thanks to Miles for that info. In comments.
