History and Elections

As the local elections approach and according to the Times:
"THE BNP is fielding 356 candidates as it seeks to more than double its 20 council seats. Yorkshire has the largest number of far-right candidates (105), followed by the West Midlands (86), the North West (55), the North East (44) and London (37)."

My mind went to this day in 1945:
"1945: Italian partisans kill Mussolini.

Benito Mussolini, dictator of Italy until his downfall in 1943, has been killed by partisans along with his mistress, Clara Petacci, and some close associates."
