Oxygen of publicity
The BNP's gain of 11 seats in Barking is sure to deliver them more of the oxygen of publicity which they crave.
As will the angst over whether Margaret Hodge - the Labour MP for the area - unwittingly helped their cause whilst trying to highlight the threat they posed. Our number crunchers say that although - so far - they've got 13 more councillors than before, their vote share has not increased.
Anyone with worries about the BNP should see David Dimbleby's devastating forensic interview with their leader Nick Griffin.
UPDATE 0615: You can watch the interview here.
