For the first time in a long time I am incredibly proud of my fellow citizens.
They have come out in considerable numbers to express their opinion.
Personally, I was in support of the BBC to allow him to be on the show, because, whether we like it or not, he is an elected, recognised party leader.
We cannot pick and choose in these matter, we have to allow a platform for all parties, no matter if we agree with their abhorrent views or not.
The people also have the right to protest, and this should never be prevented.
Just as that BNP arse has the right to be involved in the political arena, the people have the right to protest and give their opinion.
Incidentally, to lend support to exactly why these people are protesting, I just heard Nick Griffin on Sky news calling these people rioters. He also
stated clearly that, in his opinion, they shouldn't be permitted to express their views!
He later revised this when appearing on the BBC, adding that these people were "limiting democracy". He completely fails to understand that this is
a democratic right of the people, they have the right to protest against his views. This is true democracy in action.
So, while he demands the right to speak, he would quickly refuse the people their right to an opposing opinion.
This is another reason why the BNP should NEVER gain any ground politically in this country!
Many of us have pondered the question of if you could go back in time and kill Hitler, would you? Well, IMO, this is the same situation. If you have
the opportunity to prevent Hitler from gaining leadership of a country, wouldn't you do everything you can to make sure such a grotesque human never
gains such power?
I'm watching this with glee. I'm proud of these people for speaking out and showing that this party is not welcome in this country by a vast
