Oh dear, what a shame, never mind!

According to a BBC report The French National Front, is in dire financial straits and has sold its headquarters. Leader Jean-Marie Le Pen has confirmed that the party base has been purchased by a Shanghai university.

Apparently the party has already sold its bullet-proof car on eBay. The party has a total debt of some 9m euros according to Le Monde, partly due to a poor showing in the 2007 legislative elections which meant it had to cover its own campaign costs. The organisation has already had some bank accounts frozen after disagreements with creditors.

My heart truly bleeds for Le Pen and his rabble. I would have loved it if the headquarters to had been turned into a refugee centre - just to see the look on his face!

I suppose BNP HQ could be turned into a mosque and Pauline Hanson's home into an aboriginal rights centre!

I wonder if Le Pen will try and sell paintings of himself to supporters like Nick Griffin did (I heard the bidding for Griffin's picture passed £180).

The Democrats are nothing like teh Front National Sarge.

Ugh.. I would buy Griffin pics if they were on two ply paper and on a roll!

Oh no. How sad. Shall we organise a whip-round? - preferably a cat o' nine tails across Le Pen's dirty, fascist backside.
