BNP on BBC Question Time reaction
Thanks for all the messages. I'm starting to improve.
Anyway, I've now watched Question Time. I think it was a shame it concentrated almost exclusively on the BNP.
Nick Griffin did not come across well at all. He couldn't give a straight answer to save his life, and his remark about David Duke being a member of an "almost none violent" branch of the KKK was priceless.
But Jack Straw was disappointing on immigration. He knows full well that if the BNP are to be defeated there needs to be a much more honest debate about people's concerns.
Interesting TV, good for democracy, etc, etc, but I am not sure how far this takes us in the debate about how to deal with the rise of the far right?
