Odd Bookish Thought of the Day

CrabbeGoyle

In the wizarding world of J.K. Rowling, the reporter Rita Skeeter is basically the analogue of trashy, tell-all tabloids like the Daily Mail.

That got me thinking.

What would be the equivalent of British anti-EU/anti-immigrant party UKIP? I was thinking the Death Eaters, but they’re too malevolent and, to be perfectly honest, too smart for that kind of foolishness.

Crabbe and Goyle would definitely be in on it regardless. They’re about the right mixture of ignorance and ill will.

Got any suggestions? Toss them in the comments section below.
