The leader of the British National Party Nick Griffin, is to appear on the BBC Question Time programme to be screened on the 22nd October. click here
Do you think the BBC should offer a platform to Mr Griffin, or do you think it is totally unjustifiable for the corporation to allow him to give his view on the topics put forward by the Question time audience?
He has a right to free speech providing that what he says is not racially abusive. NC is not so daft as to put his hoof in it, so I will watch the programme. He has as much right as that reptile Mandleson.
'The question time audience and viewers for the first time will see him for what he is'...you have a naive view of the British Public, the vast majority of whom know nothing of the policies of the party they vote for.
As most respondents to this thread feel it is right for Griffin to be allowed to speak. What should the reaction be to the members of the group "Unite against Fascism" who are determined not to allow the program to go ahead, by blockading Television centre?
Should the Police escort Griffin into the venue, and who should pick up the bill for Policing the event. The License fee payer or the local council?
I think he should be allowed to appear as well. His party is growing in popularity it seems so he should be given a chance to give his views as well. I do hope though, that it does not turn into a Question Time about making Nick Griffin into a monster. It should be about open debate about issues of today but I doubt it will be that way.
I don't vote for Griffin's party, but I would like to see him on national television and given a chance to air his views. I will probably get shouted down here but, at the moment we are being governed by a crew who have a leading member of the cabinet that has had to resign at least twice due to fiddling mortgages and fiddling passports to get gay lovers into the country. They are no better in my opinion than Griffins mob.
I want to hear what he has to say so that I can make up my own mind, so far I don't like what they have to stand for, but doesn't mean I won't listen to what he says. The anti fascism no need to protest on my behalf, I can make up my on mind thanks.
