Abstract

I live too far down the hills of north London to claim the Hampstead and Highgate Express as my local paper although it is sold outside my tube station. But I know some of the staff and am fully aware of its reputation as just about the highest quality local paper in Britain. It serves a very rich area of the capital whose residents have traditionally been of a leftish, intellectual and Jewish nature. So it is no surprise that some of them are angered at the paper’s decision to accept an election advertisement from the racist British National party who are contesting local elections.
