FAO Political Parties: Don't be scared of debating Nick Griffin

Busy, very busy with thesis stuff today. But as a means of passing comment on an issue that I feel quite strongly about (and one I've written about before) I'd like to direct you to this piece by Kezia Dugdale on the potential that the BNP may appear on BBC's Question Time.

I don't say it often, but I absolutely agree with Ms. Dugdale on this one. A boycott, an anti-platform stance by the "major" parties completely misses the point and will do more damage in the long run.

More later (if I can find the time).

Remember there is a flip side to this, by giving them legitimacy and publicity, more of our Neanderthal citizens will opt for their one size fits all easy solution.

Those who traditionally opt out of democracy, who see politicians as being 'all the same', the blowhards in the pub who delight in racism, homophobia, and bigotry this is their license to shock and sadly participate by voting.

I'm quite happy - indeed, eager - to engage in debate with others when the topic provides opportunity to do so. I like knowing who I'm debating with and I'm fed up with some abusive anonymous comments so I've disabled those comments for awhile. If you want to comment, log in - it only takes a minute.
