I just stole this pic from Letters from a Tory
It was right to invite the BNP’s Nick Griffin onto the show. It is about debate and everyone got in and had a say. Surely that’s better than censorship. Not only that but it blew the lid of the complacency in politics and the changing of the guard next year. It brought fundamental questions into play and it was a chance to get the British people’s minds open and thinking seriously about issues.
It’s the only possible way to get real change for the good – to have people angry and demanding it. Every pent up Brit who is thoroughly p—ed off by the last 12 years can now have an outlet for his anger.
It’s healthy to have let him on the show.
The LibDems picked a light weight, Chris Who?, to represent them. The Tories chose their token Paki whom they made a baroness because she failed to get selected to become an MP, Sayeeda Warsi. Labour went for the war criminal and law breaker Minister of Justice, Jack Straw.
The BBC stuck with the regular presenter David Dimbleby, who appeared to have lost his moral compass on the way to the BBC studio. The BNP chose their one-eyed monster, Nick Griffin MEP, and he handled being the victim very well.
The British Museum sent one of its exhibits, Bonnie Greer, and apart from Dimbleby she was the only non-politician on the panel.
There’s only one aspect that I admire about this repugnant horrible little man. He did at least have the balls to appear on a live debate whereas our esteemed unelected PM Comrade Brown refuses to ever answer any direct questions and is still reluctant to appear on live TV together with his Tory and Lib counterparts with/without a carefully selected audience.
