Facist Racist Wankers

The BNP are a hateful bunch of fantasising bigoted, fascist, racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic tosspots. That much we all know. So I have no need to go over the whole Nick Griffin/BBC debacle. Let me focus instead on some of the side stories that got lost in this week's news:

1. Was Peter Hain hung out to dry? I didn't see many NuLabs supporting him on his one man hysterical attempt to redefine democracy, did you? The silence of NuLab support for him was deafening.

2. Is Nick Griffin mad? I thought his behaviour on QT was very strange. What was all the silly giggling about? Why did he clap when someone attacked him? Why could he not come up with a better answer to the most obvious question of the night - Q. Are you a racist? A. I have not been convicted of racism. Duh! Is that your best shot, Nick? With your Cambridge degree, that was the best you could come up with?

3. Why are the Tories and Lib Dems not landing serial punches on the real reason that the BNP has gained support - the pathetic and risible immigration policy of NuLab. Jack Straw looked ridiculous trying to defend the indefensible and Sayeeda Warsi and Chris Huhne failed to land even a light slap!

4. Why have the Tories not landed serial punches on proportional representation, the electoral mechanism - adored by the Lib Dems (for obvious reasons) and implemented by NuLab in Scotland, Wales and London - by which extremist fringe politicians always get elected here and abroad.

5. Why did the BBC focus all the questions on QT on the BNP? To expose these morons for what they are, a single issue extremist campaign group, where were the questions on the economy, foreign policy, social issues, the NHS, the post strike etc? Griffin would have imploded with nothing to say at all on any other issue than immigration.

The best way to fight extremists is to:

a. Take them head on in debate - their lack of logic, re-writing of history and poisonous views are then laid bare for all to see, and

b. Keep 'first past the post' for all elections.

You're bang on regardging how frustrating it was that Nulab were not held responsibile for the rise in BNP support. Particularly when Jack Straw was allowed to completely sidestep a direct question over Labours responsibility. If it was that the whole show was to be to string up Nick Griffin why was it allowed to be done in the manner of a shit witch hunt? None of the questions were at all probing, nor did they really expose his policies as racist. The show was just filled with generic insults and slander about what he might have been quoted as saying. I might have been watching Nick Griffin on Trisha for all the good the audience or panel did to grill him. I was thoroughly disapointed with it, i settled in to watch him get grilled and made to look a hypocritical and racist fool. Instead i saw poor quality goading of an animal, which, i am ashamed to say left me feeling almost sorry for Griffin in a peculiar way! If anything, i fear the question time may have gained him support. People who don't know enough about him may well have understood him to be outspoken and misquoted rather than the bigotted hateful racist he is. In some ways i'm sure he got exactly what he wanted from it, to the un-scrutinising eye he may have come across as a moderate politician victimised by majority parties. From such a moral high-ground and with such majority backing the other panelists should have seemed far more impressive than they did. Very unsatisfying all together.
