Griffin on Question Time

Nick Griffin, the head of the fascist British National Party, was on Question Time last night and it made quite a stink on this side of the pond. The BBC has some info on the event.

If you are interested in watching the whole program, you can do so here.

I knew from the get-go that it would be 60 minutes of folks hammering Griffin on the racist and stupid things he says and believes, which did made for some good entertainment. The problem with Griffin is that he is much smoother than your average fascist nut job, and I fear his arguments may have resonated with a number of folks across the country.

But in democracy, you get the government you deserve. Let’s hope this is the high point of the Nick Griffin’s career, and not another stepping stone.

Bob has some thoughts on the program. As does Oliver.
