I have just recieved a brochure through my door entitled "You wouldn't vote for these fascists" which sports an image of a man wearing a Fred Perry
polo shirt whilst making a nazi gesture.
The objective of the brochure is an attempt to persuade people to not vote for the British National Party (BNP), whilst I do not personally support
the BNP or any other particular political party, I'm a little concerned about the image said brochure is portraying.
Note: Whilst I do not support any particular political party, I do have an interest in politics and the best for our society
The message delivered from the brochure is very strong and questionable in nature; using sterotypical images, hate mongery and mention of the word
fascist numerous amounts of times.
The point I'm trying to convey is that even though every individual has his own oppinion, isn't it wrong to try and convince or persaude people by
the usage and references to the holocaust, slaughtered jews and KKK members?
If a brochure was delivered through my letter box stating all the atrocities that members of other various political parties or religious groups had
committed then wouldn't the supporters of such groups feel slightly outraged?
As previously mentioned I have an interest in politics and the best for this country as a whole and I will admit that my knowledge of the BNP's
practices and opinions isn't that great, so I could be proved wrong.
As a leading sports clothing manufacturer I'm pretty sure that Fred Perry aren't very happy that a person using their clothing is depicted on the
front of a brochure displaying members of the BNP or neo nazi?
Whilst I'm not advocating the ill treatment of citizens from other countries, shouldn't our country favour its own? Shouldn't Britains who live in
England have priority or preference?
I understand laws of equality but why should I have to pay for a prescription when illegal immigrants in this country get it for free?
Finally, the deliverance of this brochure in my opinion suggests that certain members of the government are worried about the BNP coming to power.
Your thoughts and opinions are welcomed
