BNP leader Nick Griffin has slipped past hundreds of anti-fascist protesters to get into BBC TV Centre in London for an appearance on Question Time tonight.
The BNP leader had told Sky News it was "a serious possibility" that he would pull out of his controversial appearance if he could not safely enter the studio.
After watching the live feeds for hours, I notice two things: I saw TWO black people in total. Just two. The rest were mostly young, stereotypically-looking students.
There were anti-nuke, anti war, anti-government and anti god knows what else signs mixed in.
Conclusion: These people have no real, cause, no idea what they're protesting against, and want to relish the opportunity to protest about something.

Also, would you not put their behaviour ie breaking into a building, stopping the democratic process and political debates, stopping information getting to the public, into the fascism category?
I think they're hypocritical.

I think this has all been set up to make it seem that the light shines out of the other political party's asses. First 17 mins is just attacking BNP. Not really discussing politics as a whole, just attacking BNP.
Great move. Really makes me want to vote for those other parties. Childish.
Asked whether immigration policy had fuelled the BNP, Mr Straw said he did not think it had and said he thought the BNP had been boosted by discontent with the main parties over issues like expenses.
But Baroness Warsi said politicians had a responsibility to take on the BNP on the issue of immigration: "Many people who vote for the BNP are not racist and therefore what we have to do is go out and say to these people as mainstream political parties we are prepared to listen."
