You know how it is. You’re faffing about on the internet and all of a sudden something rather unexpected happens.

Like Googling ‘pea wack’ and finding out that a recipe for the scouse dish is the first result – from the Liverpool BNP’s website.

It’s one of those moments that makes you stop in your tracks – like when Louis Theroux persuaded some US militia types to take a ride on a ferris wheel.

We didn’t click on the link but couldn’t help wondering whether all of the recipes on the site are for similarly ‘British’ fare. What price a chicken tikka masala recipe on there?

    I don’t think you should be drawing any attention to the fact that their website exists. Also, does anyone care what comes up when you search for pea wack?

    And you might want to check out the website of the commenter above. You probably don’t want that link on your website either.

    I think that ignoring the fact that the BNP exists is a stupid attitude. As for whether you’re interested or not in the article that’s up to you but no-one’s forcing to you read the article – or any articles on the site.

    It’s not about denying the BNP exists but assuming Sevenstreets is a reasonably popular website you probably got their Liverpool website more attention/traffic than it’s likely to have had before. And what for? For a brilliant piece of journalism exposing their hatred and ignorance? No, for an inane comment about Google search results. I think that’s an error of judgement.

    I think that’s either naivety of how web user work or an overly generous interpretation of our traffic. If I’d thought this would amount to sending people to the BNP’s website I wouldn’t have done it.

    The point is that the BNP’s parochialism even extends to what recipes they decide to print on their website – I think that shows how absurd they are without any sort of in-depth analysis, which we’re realistically unable to do in the first place.
