The BBC is reporting that Unilever, the makers of Marmite, is initiating legal action against the BNP to force the racist party to remove a jar of Marmite which apparently features in its election broadcast (further, and funnier, from Reuters and from Harry’s Place).

It would be nice to think that Unilever subscribes, even in a small way, to the ‘not in my name’ philosophy of HOPE not hate; I can’t say that it doesn’t – and anything which ties up the BNP in the threat of legal action, or distracts or otherwise helps to sap it, has to be good news.
