Coming a couple of days after my post on the Racist attacks on Italian gypsies is the news that in Austria between them two! far right parties have polled more votes than the mainstream parties in their elections. With their Mussolini and Hitler connections, there is more of a history of Fascism in both countries, but lest we forget Oswald Mosley and his black shirts, and the Nazi skinheads of the 70’s and 80’s, especially in the light of a recent survey of young British people, were two thirds thought immigration was ‘diluting’ national identity and a quarter said it was taking away jobs. In the wake of the Austrian election results, it is not known what impact the votes of 16 and 17 year olds has had on the result; not only was it was the first time they had been able to vote in their election, but Austria were the first European country to give the vote to young people in a National Election, but why should we worry cos it wont happen here, NO! IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE! and it’s down to us to make sure it doesn’t.
