You may be wondering why I am sporting a rather natty mustache in the above picture.
To be succinct, today is the birthday of the legendary Charlie Chaplin who, amongst other things, was notable for popularizing the toothbrush mustache. Until Adolf Hitler rose to power, he was probably the most well known wearer of said tache but after 1945 it all went a bit downhill for this humble bit of face furniture.
So, I am wearing the tache both in honour of a comic genius and also to make fascists look like the simple minded, playground bullies that they are. The three leaders on the television debate last night may not have impressed you with their well rehearsed soundbites and spin, but that doesn't excuse you from making a choice in a little under three weeks time. Go out and cast your ballot for anyone but the BNP. Send them a message that their brand of politics is not welcome here.
