Thread Name: BS: BNP on question time
Subject: RE: BS: BNP on question time
I'm not sure what to feel about this to be honest. When it comes to the BNP I hate the bastards and everything they stand for. But it seems to me that you either have free speech or you don't. If (as I understand it) the rules are that once you've obtained representation in the European Parliament, you're entitled to airtime on the BBC, it seems wrong to make one rule for the BNP and another for everyone else. I've seen members of other minority parties on QT over the years.

Of course the cynic in me says that this is all about the BBC chasing ratings. Whatever it is, I hope the interviewer and the panel show more balls when talking to Griffin than that dosy mare on the radio did the other day when she was interviewing the pair of throwbacks from Hitler Youth!
