Holocaust Memorial Day - light a candle

I can't say it better than the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust:

"Nazi ideology was founded on racism, anti-semitism and discrimination, creating a fascist state that rejected human and civil rights. The evils of prejudice, discrimination and intolerance continue to exist in Britain. We have lessons to apply today, as individuals, communities and institutions within our society. Hate crimes and attacks against people because of race or ethnicity; sexuality; disability; or religion continue to take place. HMD acts as a reminder to all of us of our responsibility to protect the civil and human rights of all people in our society and around the world."

A sombre and very poignant post. It makes both my own and other people’s daily ramblings seem trivial.

Slightly of topic but true never the less: remove the word Nazi at the beginning and insert the letters “BNP”. This is what you would have if they ever got a foothold in the democratic system.
