Pete and Carl- together again- Team Democracy Unite!
Britain loves to spread news about these two and lately it has all been positive, which makes it even better. Today is a local election day throughout Great Britain which has spurred Pete and Carl into action-lending support to the cause Love Music Hate Racism which urges fans to vote for any party other than the far right group in local elections. Via his band's website, Carl stated that "The BNP currently have 49 local council seats around the UK, and are standing over 750 candidates in the elections. Low turnout has often been a major factor in BNP local election wins, and sometimes just a handful of votes can make all the difference." Meanwhile Babyshambles' Drew McConnell said: "Voting can be as much about who we don't want elected as who we do...use your voice if only to drown out that of the BNP." Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Roll Deep, The Paddingtons and Mecca2Medina have also joined the campaign. So it would seem our country isn't the only one fighting back!
