English Passport Blog Delusion

The English Passport blog carries the following heading:

http://englishpassport.org/2012/01/23/ippr-report-delivers-big-boast-to-english-democrats-from-a-labour-party-think-tank/

Big boast to English Democrats??  Should that be boost?

The report states the following about the English Democrats:

‘To the extent that one agrees that ‘English interests’ require championing, it is hard to dissemble from the view that they are not sufficiently well represented in the current political system. Unlike Scotland and Wales, there is no significant political party promoting England as a locus and focus of political life. That the tiny English Democrats are currently absorbing members from a disintegrating British National Party makes clear that they will not plug that particular gap. 12’

12 For example, two very prominent former BNP activists – Chris Beverley and Eddy Butler – ar e now members of the English Democrats, the latter following an unsuccessful leadership bid against the BNP’ s Nick Griffin in 2010. Despite their membership of the English Democrats, Beverley and Butler continue to work for BNP MEP , Andrew Brons.

If this is a ‘big boost’ , sorry ‘boast’ for the English Democrats, I shudder to think what form a setback might take.
