Labour wraps itself in St George - elections anyone?

Just received an invite from the Smith Institute, an organisation that has taken Guido's interest on the odd moment,

To read it is to know that the world is flat, the moon is made of green cheese, pigs do fly, and Gordon is a patriot,

On their website the event is described as "John Denham MP on community cohesion"

The email invite beggars belief...

An Election 2010 Lecture by Rt. Hon. John Denham MP

I am writing to invite you to attend a lecture on the above topic which the Smith Institute is running at 1800hrs for 1830hrs on Tuesday 2nd March 2010 in the House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA.

The event will include a question and answer session, and will conclude no later than 1930hrs.

The lecture will be delivered by Rt. Hon. John Denham MP (Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government). In the run-up to the elections, he will discuss the challenges facing our political and community leaders and set out his views on what more needs to be done to strengthen community cohesion.

I do hope you will be able to join us on Tuesday 2nd March for what I am sure will be a very interesting event. I would be grateful if you could confirm whether you will be attending this discussion or not, by emailing, as soon as possible, and in any case no later than Tuesday 23rd February 2010.

Well I guess that people and watch this bizarre - non BNP related - conversion to English patriotism. Bit late in the day of course, biut as we al know there is more happiness in heaven for one sinner that repenteth.

If you think that is one sinner repenting you are being excessively charitable. You are not, of course. It is simply election time; and the rogues are suddenly and desperately scrabbling to become patriots - thereby confirming that they are indeed scoundrels.
