Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist Leninist) fit the bill for me. Pro North Korea, pro-Assad, pro-fucking Stalin. As do any other left groups that embrace repression in the name of anti-imperialism.

Speaking of oddballs, I see ex-BNP racist and all-round head-the-ball Claire Khaw's joined the Tories. Bit surprised they've let her in - even UKIP would probably turn their noses up.

Meet Claire Khaw.

She was thrown out of the BNP …… for being too extreme.

Apparently even the BNP couldn’t stomach Claire’s views – for example euthanasia for disabled babies:

“If I had a severely disabled child or knew I was about to have one I wouldn’t impose it on the taxpayer and expect other people to pay for all the expensive equipment that it needs …“

So which political party was extreme enough to accommodate Claire and her mentalist views?

Well, Claire’s just announced she’s joined the Conservative Party – describing it as “like coming home”.

No – this isn’t one of my more tasteless satires. Although whenever I come across right-wing mentalists like her I can’t help thinking they must be joking.

But unfortunately – for the Conservative Party - Claire’s real enough.

I expect we’re going to be seeing some frantic spinning from Cameron’s spin doctors over this.

A round of applause for Claire folks.

What an act.

Contrary to the Blogger I'm pretty sure that's not an Kalaskikov (Which has a fair wad of plumbing atop the barrel).

Her left arm is obscuring most of the detail, and I don't know the height of the lady.
But my best guess is that it's the short (para) version of the Belgian Fusil Automatique Leger (and she's about as tall as Jimmie Krankie).

My cock and conscience remain unconflicted.

Nah, the FAL is low barrelled, that thing's mid. I'd say it was Italian, maybe something by Beretta.

Mine, too.

Do the Tories actually know who she is? Can't anyone join a mainstream party without giving them their political history?

The Jobbik Party in Hungary are a right nasty bunch of shitheads.

People of Jewish heritage are a "security risk" and should be registered on a nationwide list, according to right-wing extremist Hungarian politician Márton Gyöngyösi. His comments, made in the country's parliament, have sparked widespread outrage. But the government was slow to distance itself.


Der Spiegel (in English) has the story;

These racists don't do self-awareness, do they?)

We're probably just both obsessive tech-heads who love to know how things work.

Sounds a bit like "Jobbie", which will do little for their credibility if they try to forge links with Braveheart fans in these parts.
I move that we nickname then the floaters (along the lines of the Big Yin's turd based sketch).

They can't be that obsessed - neither spotted that it's "Kalashnikov" not "Kalaskikov" ;)

Japan's government would appear to be totally fucking crackers.

Japan’s public diplomacy hovers between the ludicrous and the sinister. In recent months, the country has specialised in foreign policy gaffes that seem designed to give maximum offence to its Asian neighbours while causing maximum embarrassment to its western allies.

Last week provided another example. Japan unveiled the largest naval vessel it has built since the second world war. The ship is nominally a destroyer – but it is an aircraft carrier in all but name. Beefing up the Japanese navy is arguably a legitimate response to China’s arms build-up. But, at a time of rising tensions in Asian seas, Japan should tread carefully. So what genius decided to call this new ship “Izumo” – the same name as a Japanese warship that took part in the invasion of China in the 1930s.

China was quick to charge Japan with deliberate provocation. Such an accusation would be easier to brush aside if the naming of the Izumo was an isolated incident. But just a few days earlier Taro Aso, Japan’s deputy prime minister, was caught suggesting that the Nazis might provide a suitable model for efforts to revise Japan’s pacifist constitution. “We should proceed quietly,” Mr Aso mused. “One day people realised that the Weimar constitution had changed into the Nazi constitution. No one had noticed. Why don’t we learn from that approach?” The unsurprising outcry that greeted these remarks forced an official spokesman to issue a clarification: “The Abe administration does not perceive Nazi Germany in a positive light.”

Just a couple of months earlier, it was Shinzo Abe who committed an offensive gaffe. The Japanese prime minister was photographed giving a thumbs-up from the cockpit of a trainer-jet with the number 731 painted prominently on the side. But 731 was the number of a unit of the Japanese imperial army, notorious for carrying out biological and chemical experiments on humans. I was in South Korea at the time the photo appeared in May – and almost every Korean I spoke to was convinced that it was a deliberate provocation. At the time I dismissed that view as paranoia. But now I am not quite so sure. Since then, Park Geun-hye, South Korea’s new president, has pointedly paid a state visit to Beijing before visiting Tokyo – breaking with a precedent set by her four predecessors.
