Nick Griffin on Question Time
I've just managed to watch Question Time with Nick Griffin on YouTube. The first part can be seen here, and links to all six parts of the programme are given at the head of this posting.
The programme was basically a bear pit, with an audience that seemed to have rather more than its fair share of our ethnic brothers and sisters than is to be found in the population at large. They and their white middle class friends seemed to want to outdo each other with displays of the type of outrage that only the comfortable middle class can come up with. It is quite likely that more than a few working class people watching the show on television will have been turned off by that display, and it may even have served to boost the BNP in their minds.
As far as the panel was concerned, Chris Huhne of the Liberal-Democrats came off best with Nick Griffin a close second. In spite of seeming ill at ease for the first ten minutes of the programme, Griffin scored an early hit on Nu-Labour's Jack Straw when the latter started on a patriot binge, and Griffin reminded him that Griffin Sr. had served in the RAF during the Second World War whilst Straw's old man had been a conscientious objector -or a fucking conshie as they were more usually known. That sound byte will be going the rounds pretty quickly. . .
As will the sight of the Tory Sayeeda Warsi - who looked even fatter than she did in this clip - when she claimed that there were no invalid asylum applications. God knows what the silly cow thought she was doing with that fatuous remark - maybe thinking about all the fucking relatives that she can bring over? Anyway, you can just guarantee that this clip is being passed around the mobile 'phones even as your friendly old Exile writes these words.
Couple all this with the image of hundreds of bovine Trots fighting the police outside the studio and it is no wonder that interest in joining the BNP has increased enormously.
All in all a good night for the BNP.
