Worth A Smile.
The thought of poor and wretched neo-fascist parties begging for a few Euros to stay afloat must bring a smile to even the most stony hearted, so it is with the fate of the NPD, Kirklees Unity has more:
“The neo-Nazi NPD party is resorting to prime-rate phone lines to raise money, using the same 0900-code system employed by sex phone services and quiz hotlines.
The Berlin party headquarters has two such numbers, Der Spiegel reported this weekend, enabling supporters to donate money anonymously just by picking up the phone.
Each call raises either €5 or €10, the magazine reported.
An attempt to enable those who want to give even more while maintaining their anonymity by adding a PayPal button to the NPD website has failed though.
The party, which is facing bankruptcy, followed other smaller parties such as the Christian Social Union, Free Democratic Party, The Left and the Greens by using the PayPal system to enable supporters to donate up to €500.”
