Away from the campaign

The Broadway theatre in Barking is to host ‘Spin The Election’, a festival of arts described as ‘an artistic response to all the hype and hubris’ of the 6 May general election. Barking is the constituency in which BNP leader Nick Griffin is standing against Labour incumbent Margaret Hodge. It will open with ‘A Day at the Racists’, a new piece of political theatre about the rise of the BNP by Anders Lustgarten.

In Wales today an 84-year old is due to be sentenced for planting a revenge bomb after he was overcharged by his dentist. Peter McShane, 84, of Pembroke Dock, Wales, will be sentenced on eight charges. He planted a fake bomb outside the surgery, glued up the locks and stole a wall plaque following a visit to the dentist in 2007 when he was charged £183.
