If we all stopped going on about them they would probably both go away.
Looking at the bloggesphere recently, you might be forgiven for thinking that the two biggest issues facing British politics at the moment are the BNP and Derek Draper. They're not!
DD and the BNP have a lot in common. Both think that they are right, and they're not. Both generate a lot of heat but very little light. Both are from the authoritarian left and neither deserve anything like the amount of coverage that they get.
I feel that both have the right to have a voice on the Internet, and I have the right to completely ignore what they say there.
Think of it like a scab on your knee (remember when you were small?), the more you pick it the worse it gets, ignore it, get on with something more positive and it goes away quicker than you would ever have imagined.
