David Blunkett, Britain`s Home Secretary, (and thus head of law enforcement) has resigned over an immigration scandal. He turns out to have helped his lover`s nanny get a visa, in an involved scandal.
This, like the similar Kerik case, shows that politicians don`t take illegal immigration seriously.
Blunkett, of course, for those who haven`t been following it, is the man who`s been pushing for the anti-"religious hate" laws—the kind of thing that caused the arrest of BNP head Nick Griffin yesterday.
Yesterday, I did a big roundup of news on the arrest of Nick Griffin on charges of "hate." Just as well—the Establishment media in the United States seems to be ignoring this extraordinary arrest of the leader of a democratic party for his political views.
Nothing in the New York Times, top of the media food chain.
And nothing, needless to say, in National Review, once top of the conservative food chain.
