So, your head ballerina joins the BNP; you would expect protests, yes? One would hope the protesters would show class...well, hope isn't a plan.
Less than 15 minutes into Simone Clarke's star performance in Giselle, protesters taunted her from the stalls with the words: "The principal ballerina is a BNP member. No to fascism in the arts."What do you mean? Hitler was an artist. Oh, nevermind - I digress. You would expect that in oh, so PC England that the whole audience would join in ... you would think.
In an extraordinary escalation of the row that has surrounded the English National Ballet company for weeks, a 34-year-old man and several sixth-form students jumped up from their seats to shout: "Black and white unite. No to the BNP."
...But there were loud cries of "shame" and "shut up" from the usually tranquil ballet audience, ... some of the London Coliseum's 2,000-odd spectators were angry and upset that a performance of such serenity had been hijacked by "ugly politics".And how "fascist" is our lovely?
"It was an absolutely outrageous outburst, and completely inappropriate", said Angela Large, a 50-year-old photographer who was among many to pay more than £40 for a seat in the stalls. "I have no sympathy whatsoever with the BNP but to attack and humiliate someone while they are using their talent and doing their job is the wrong way to make a statement."
After dancing the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker, she went on to give an unrepentant interview on New Year's Eve, lamenting "mass immigration" and praising the BNP as "the only party willing to take a stand".One pathetic thing about the immature reactionary Left; they make even the BNP look civilized and at one with freedom.
"I've never been clearer that in my head that I'm moving in the right direction and at the right time. I will be known as the BNP ballerina. . . but I don't regret anything," she said.
Clarke's own partner, Yat-Sen Chang, also a dancer, is a Cuban immigrant of Chinese descent. She said this does not conflict with her views on immigration.
...then a crowd of BNP sympathisers arrived to take their seat at the ballet in support of Clarke, the two groups angrily shouted "No to rabid racist dogs" and "freedom of speech for all" at one another.Guess who was saying "feedom of speech for all?" The world is upside down.
Part I here.
While we are yapping about the BNP; besides the fact the Left is making them look good - want to know why they will continue to grow? Because good people will continue to lose hope in the Tories as they act like this and they have no other option. Blair's New-Labour Nanny knows not individual freedom - that is for sure.
