QUESTION TIME?

Hello again folks! I am no supporter of the BNP [as you know]. But ... surprise, surprise ... last night's edition of BBC's 'Question Time' programme was as 'controversial' as it was hyped up to be ... but for [as I suspected; I might add] slightly differing reasons. I was hoping that I would watch this [usually] rather good political debating show and see how all the guests would tackle a wide range of questions and topics relative to the current news such as our national debt; the recession; immigration et al.
Unfortunately; we got a turkey shoot. We had a biased audience; loaded questions aimed personally at Nick Griffin; and other guests all lined up to fire across one of the other guests bow. Apparently, the BBC decided to 'change the format' of the show ... just this one time. We did not get to hear the BNP position on a variety of oft debated issues. All we really got was a cross-examination of things that Mr. Griffin has said &/or done. No mention was made that the BNP received 6% of the vote at the last national election.
The problem is that we do not live in a democracy any more. So-called 'anti-fascist protesters' are being ever-so-hypocritical me thinx. It is they who are starting down the road of leading us all into a dictatorship a la George Orwell's 'Big Brother' nightmare - not the BNP.
There are two [2] ways to 'defeat' or eradicate the support for the BNP. Folks should either not vote for them [UKIP are a better bet if you are really a 'nationalist'] or this political party should be banned or made illegal. Problem solved.
Ah ... I hear you say: "Folks ARE voting for the BNP and it IS a legal political party." So the only way to deal with the BNP in our 'democracy' is to use all necessary means in the press and public office to vilify it and its leader. This involves NOT engaging them in real debate on the key issues. It's a chicken and egg kind of thing. The powers that be aren't really so 'democratic' in that they are using such devious methods and outright abuses of 'freedom' against this rather small group of right-wingers.
I think that Nick Griffin is quite right to complain and seek an apology for his treatment on the programme. Despite his views - even if he may have been a Holocaust denier - I'd like to debate him on that and other issues without resorting to out-and-out insults and without setting up straw men. After all; we do live a democracy and we do have the British characteristics of fair play; honest values and behaviour - don't we? Answers on a postcard please. Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED! and watch the periphery!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 23-Oct-2009
