Pete Doherty Condemns BNP Win In London Elections

Babyshambles signer Pete Doherty has condemned the election of the BNP's Richard Barnbrook to the London Assembly. 

Barnbrook, who is BNP leader on Barking and Dagenham Council,  one of 25 seats on the Assembly at last week's local elections.

Speaking following his release from prison this morning, Doherty said “there will be no passage of evil through these isles without a proper, good struggle.”

“This island has always been a melting pot and  personally I am 100% mongrel in the great dog stew of history - Bona fide scouse, London Irish, jew Geordie BiloRussian.”

Doherty, who missed last week’s Love Music Hate Racism carnival because of his imprisonment, said that “closed borders are like closed minds”.

“Racism is upon us and let us not forget it is still within living memory that six million people died in gas chambers because of a hateful ideology,” he added.

The Love Music Hate Racism campaign will hold a protest against Richard Barnbrook's presence on the London Assembly tonight (May 6th) at City Hall from 6pm.
