The Devil at Devil's Kitchen has drawn my attention to a strange thing. He says that the BNP is ultra left-wing. This gives me my first project. I'm going to understand that statement.

I need to know what the right and the left represent, in that case. As far as I recall from history lessons and hearsay, 'left' and 'right' come from the French pre-revolution period when the nobles sat on the king's right in parliament, and the rabble sat on his left, in a position of less honour. Which sure made him popular with them.

Regardless of whether that's true, or simply good to hear, I'm going to look into left vs right. I'd tell people to wish me luck, but there aren't any people yet.

Oh, hi there, WoW spammers.
