UKIP: Compulsive Roman Hello Disorder
An ailment that often affects "former" Nazis and fascists is the so-called "compulsive Roman hello disorder" (cRhd)
Sufferers, who generally find it difficult to integrate themselves into polite society, are seized with an overwhelming desire to raise their right arm into the air and shout "Heil Hitler". The EFD group has two prominent sufferers: Morten Messerschmidt, previously convicted for a racial offence, was once forced to resign from his job after a cRhd attack in a Copenhagen bar in which he not only "Heiled Hitler", but apparently burst into a rousing rendition of the Horst Wessel song.
Mario Borghezio, a well know Dr Strangelove lookalike, is another sufferer. His condition is far worse, in that he doesn't want to just sing about it, he wants to do it. He has a string of convictions for racial assault and child abuse, and was recently filmed by an undercover TV news crew encouraging fascists to infiltrate mainstream political parties. If that was his reason for joining the EFD, he must be sorely disappointed - there is nothing mainstream about that bunch of jokers!
And we are not the slightest bit surprised that Douglas 'Just call me Heinrich' Denny has chosen to use Dr Strangelove as his avatar on the British Democracy Forum. When you are as mad as a hatter it sometimes pays to advertise the fact!
