"nick griffin is a 'very clever man' and a 'good orator'"

Compared to who, precisely? I've worn pants that were more intelligent and articulate than him!

That said, it does say something about a) the generally low standards of public discourse and oratory these days and b) the mind-numbing vacuity of most daytime TV programmes. I suppose it shouldn't really be surprising that Griffin comes across as a witty and dazzling speaker to people who've been fed a constant diet of political soundbites and non-stories about non-entities getting pissed in nightclubs!
