I presume that a fair few Brits on here watched the BBC show Question Time tonight, which had the BNP's Nick Griffin on the panel. To those who don't know what this is about, the BNP is the British National Party, and stands for those Brits who are white and a 'truly' British, and put Brits first. They have recently (yesterday, I believe) amended their policy to allow black and asian members into their party.. Some people compare the BNP to the Nazis, I believe. It's essentially an extremist right-wing party. Here's a link to the BBC news article. My own personal take on it, is that while I abhore the BNP, its values, no matter how nicely Griffin dresses it up - he has a valid point, in saying that once a party reaches a certain level (quickly or otherwise), they have a right to be recognised. I think it was absolutely right that the BBC allowed the BNP to sit on the panel tonight, not because I agree with them as a party, but because its fundamental to democracy that everyone gets to share their viewpoint no matter, some would say 'misguided', it is. I also thought it was fascinating, but also wrong, how the other members of the panel simply sat and essentially attacked Griffin for the whole show, without asking any questions that were put to them themselves. Attack the man's party's policies yes, but the man himself - no. Your thoughts?
