European Far Right Implodes

The far-right block in the European Parliament has collapsed - amusingly enough, because one lot were racist about the nationality of another lot.

It seems that Mussolini's grand-daughter (pictured) - who shares Il Duce's loathsome politics as well as his gene pool - had a pop at Romanians, suggesting that they are inveterate criminals. Which pissed off the Romanian nationalists somewhat.

Which all goes to show that nationalists co-operating internationally is, er, problematic. I suspect that there might be a lesson for the left in there somewhere.
