Near and far right

Just what the world needs: Brand Melanie.

Naturally Phillips, presumably plotting global domination from her lair beneath a volcano, is claiming that the world does indeed need her - her concern being not so much Broken Britain and more Broken Western Society. Still, if she wants to try her luck in the US she's likely to find herself drowned out by Glenn Beck et al. Quite how she thinks she and her epublishing firm's authors might offer "a different set of voices and a different set of attitudes" is unclear...

In addition to Phillips-approved ebooks, her website is peddling a range of branded tat including umbrellas and tote bags. Wonder if you can buy a branded tin hat too?
