An unholy alliance

Christian Voice is being helped by the far-right British National Party in its campaign against Jerry Springer The Opera.

The Opera begins its national tour at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth on Friday (booking info. available here).

According to this weekend's Observer, Local BNP leader Graham Green said: "We are totally opposed to this theatre production, and our members have been helping to hand out pro-Christian leaflets."

The paper also reports that the leader of Christian Voice, Stephen Green, said: "There may have been BNP members present at our meeting - there may also have been Labour supporters. We don't ask people for their voting records."

His stated desire to bring back a Britain that is more like the 1950s takes on a darker (or should that be whiter?) hue in the light of this knowledge, however.
