Goodwin has come in for mountains of criticism over the past year or so, partly for his bullying, partly for his stupidity but mostly because he couldn't organise the proverbial piss-up in a brewery. On second thoughts, that's probably the one thing he could organise.
The Blackpool branch of the BNP were said to have been 'stunned' that, after putting up seven candidates in the city - where they expected to grab at least a couple of seats - they managed the nice round figure of none at all. Not entirely Goodwin's fault - a combination of local union activists and Searchlight put in a lot of work to oppose them - but a great opportunity to boot him out, all the same, hastily taken by his branch.
We'd like to say something to console Goodwin in his time of trouble and tribulation - but we don't care. We're just glad to see the back of him - possibly the only thing that we share with the North-West region of the BNP.
