There is no real reason why he should not be allowed to appear.

Why not? They're still a legal party. As long as there is no fighting, and throwing of Tomatoes then it may be ok.

It should be a good opportunity to tear him and his racist policies to shreds.

I find it odd that his party refer to a Causasian race which in it's original definitions was to do with skull dimensions not skin colour, and Caucasia is the Chechnya/Azerbijan area, immigrants from which the party do not welcome.

Actually they refer to '‘Indigenous Caucasian", presumably meaning Native UK, which is even more difficult as most of their members' DNA will take them to Eastern Europe, Nordic, Mediterranean etc etc ancestry of just a few centuries ago Rolling Eyes

Why don't they just say 'white', or is that not legal in UK?

Let him go on the programme, expose the intellectual poverty of the BNP's raison d'etre for what it is and be subjected to some robust cross-examination. Sounds brilliant to me.

Ian.

I like the idea of that racist bigot appearing. It will be fun watching him being torn to shreds by the (no doubt) carefully-chosen audience!

I know a fair few folk who say they are going to vote BNP at the next general election as they are so fed up with the 3 other main parties.

I would not underestimate the BNP.

I wouldn't underestimate the BNP at all for as long as they're attracting interest from ordinary folk. Any "ordinary folk" who vote BNP must be completely thick, however.

I watched a programme last night called "BNP Wives"... ( didn't do the party any favours )

I had to smile to myself as the staunch female candidate drove off in her car broadcasting her "Vote for the BNP" messages proudly flying a large Union Jack on a staff through her sun roof.

Trouble is, it was upside down! Laughing


Yes, I'd like to see them represented on QT, maybe we'd get some decent argument and debate rather than the usual ping pong of lies.
( Ian Hislop was good last week )

Really looking forward to this Thursday's edition.

With the BNP represented on the panel it should certainly be lively/interesting.
