Poor Mr. Griffin!

Apparently he found London to be too culturaly diverse,to be able to get his message across,and believes that Question Time should have been held in a more predominantly "English" town or city! If this guys views were'nt so dangerous,he would be comedy gold!
I watched,out of curiosity,his appearance on Question Time,and i atleast have to admit that he does indeed show certain required attributes neede to become a successful politician,he could'nt give a straight answer to any of the accusations levelled at him!! I particularly enjoyed watching him squirm,when confronted with his previous holocaust denial!
I have a feeling we have not heard the last of this particular episode of Question Time!

As every politician does, Jack Straws' question on labours immigration policy??? He avoided the question as every politician does who "does not like the question" Everyone in the question time room agreed that labour had truly s***ed up on immigration yet he insisted they hadnt?

With brash arrogance like that all JS and his cronies are doing is strengthening the BNP to the point it becomes frightening.

I have personal reasons for not liking bnp, because i am irish they hate our people. Plus i hate the way people try to associate white males in uk, with bnp, just because they have short hair.

As far as i am concerned the bnp, and black panthers are just as bad racists.

But like i said, i personally am sick of stereotyping of white males in uk, just because they have short hair.

Having a shaved head, does not make you bnp or any other group. It means you want your hair short, and its a personal reason.

Rant over back to thread, yep they really should of done that question time outside london, as london would be far to prone to anti white racism. London, has alot of anti white racism today.

Ranting again, i am personally sick of living in a society where if you are white male with shaved head, you like these groups. People should stop stereotyping people.

There are lots of irish white males in uk, that shave there heads, and the bnp hate our origins, as much as they hate black people for instance.

So if your walking down a street in uk, and see shavin headed whites, do not think all of them are bnp.

Victim / underdog status is what he's playing for. I wish the media would stop encouraging it. If it weren't for all the hype and hysteria he'd get largely ignored.

I didn't watch QT because I'm not interested in what Griffin has to say. He's an opportunist who doesn't give a monkeys about what's best for Britain, he just wants power on the back of popular issues (like Islam and immigration) and promises of "quick" solutions which unfortunately will ruin this great nation.

Personally I think Britain is a fantastic country, filled with mostly tolerant, polite and patient people. If people around the world want to come and live here and have skills to support themselves then great. Competition is never a bad thing and we have a lot to learn from different cultures.

But QT, the audience and the baying mob outside handed that victim status to him on a plate. If you watched QT you would see that it wasn't a debate, it was a pantomime of shouting and name calling.

Had the programme being handled properly, had the audience been more respectful and the topics more diverse then Nick Griffin would have probably been trounced because his views and policies just don't stand up to scrutiny. But that's not what happened, instead we had the audience calling him "Dick Griffin" then s'n-word'ing.


Edit - "S"n-word"ing"? How ironic.

Totally agree with you, and I starred your post. I was really hoping the questions would be more diverse, because as you say when it comes to any issues other than race relations (lol) they don't have a clue.

Actually I can make some educated guesses.

What is your policy on improving the NHS? Kick out non-whites
What is your policy on education? Kick out non-whites

Etc!

This was a hatchet job, plain and simple.

Although I vehemently disagree with his views, he has the right to them and to speak about them.

He is absolutely correct when he says the format was changed, and that isn't on.

The BBC is funded by the taxpayer, and they have no right to play political hacthetmen on our behalf - it's not and never should be, in their remit.

Since Labour came to power, the BBC has been stuffed with their cronies, who do everything they can to further the Labour agenda whilst ignoring the other parties - except now that the wind is blowing in a different direction they are all jumping ship and toadying up to the tories.

I have no problem wih Griffin being dismantled in a civilised debate - but that's not what this was.

This was bullying, plain and simple - something this government has vowed to stamp out.
Except when it siuts them.

Yes, griffins views are abhorrent, but his treatment last night was just as bad - and add to that the fact that he can now play the Martyr, and this was an extremely silly move by the BBC and the politicians involved.

One thing for certain,this has created huge publicity for him,and his party!
No matter how we feel about BNP policies,as a recognised political party,they are entitled to have their say in public!
Obviously,a lot of attention was going to be directed at Mr. Griffin,but i think the BBC has played straight into his hands,by allowing so much of the air time to be directed at him,giving him an excuse to claim he has been bullied!

As much as I hate the way that this party carries itself and states its concerns the bottom line is that they, in a way, kinda have apoint about the UK....

Its very slowly becoming a Muslim and non multicultural lace to live with anti-white sentiment everywhere.....

I grew up and recently visited my home town of Birmingham in the UK and was disgusted by the way in which other cultures / races have come to the UK for a new start only to slowly trash the place and make it into a literal war zone......

If you come to the UK or any other country in the world, live the way the that society lives , if you want to have your own laws and rules from your homeland go back there......

Simple as.....

I believe it was right that he was allowed to take part in question time, its just sad that didn't happen.

Instead it became a shambles.

The other politicians sitting in quiet joy knowing they were going to come out of this particular episode looking like saints, without any in depth topics being discussed.

Instead we backed an ignoramus into a corner and all threw insults at him, and he still ended the show with a smile on his face.

Now we have this!

www.telegraph.co.uk...

I know the polls can often be misleading,but after the expenses scandal,is this a sign that the voters are starting to turn their backs on the mainstream parties?

The BBC made an enormous mistake with this one. Griffin as the "white English martyr' is something the BBC are responsible for creating with this debacle.

The BNP will make enormous advances in the next election. (And I suspect a very different party, namely the SNP, will likewise make strong advances.)

I expect Labour to gutter out.

The BBC scored an own goal with this one...
Because the guy, as loathsome as you might think his views are, has legitimate grounds for complaint.

If we really want to debate/expose the BNP policies - we need a proper dedicated programme so that things can be gone into in a little more depth - rather than the barrage of point scoring that took place.

Unfortunately, though, some of what NG said, does resonate with those of us who actually have to live in this supposed 'multicultural' society. While politicians continue to ignore the legitimate concerns of ordinary working people, the NGs of this world will continue to gather support.

As others have mentioned a hatchet job was done on the BNP.. no wonder their support is rising, and will rise as long as Labour and the other parties continue down this path..

I posted a coment early this year on the Gaurdian, that I felt this continual hatchet job on the BNP was a plot by labour and it's media spin to split out the tory vote and reduce the tory lead.. I got ripped to shreds for saying such a thing, but I stick by my thoughts..

As long as Labour and it's media push this line of attack on the BNP they will fracture the vote in the UK, as this continual racist Nazi chant stops all debate, nothing is being resolved as to who stands for what, while it hands fringe parties like the BNP, more votes.

Good on Nick for lodging a complaint. He still is entitled to his opinion no matter who disagrees. Sharia Law hasn't taken over yet.

Perhaps the main political parties should have tackled the immigration problem long ago,before it became the cotentious issue that it is today!

I am by no means racist,but i live in an area where there is a large foreign workforce,and indeed i am on very good terms with many of my fellow workers,often having a drink with them!

However i am concerned by the number of jobs these lads hold down!
School leavers in the area used to walk into employment in the local industry,but know find themselves with very limited options!

Also i wonder about the amount of money the foreign workers are sending to their families every week.If the workforce was mainly local,then most of their wages would be pumped back into the local economy!

It is a situation,which if not tackled by the present or next government,is only going to send dissaffected voters flooding to the BNP,and perhaps may cause the disgruntled voter to overlook this party's underlying racist agenda!

Well what about this concept of a racial homeland? Japan limits immigration along racial lines. Where's the uproar there? Is it wrong to take pride in your own race? Is it wrong to be averse to the idea that everyone's going to wind up a tan-coloured mulato?
