Well! That’s causing a jolly stir isn’t it!
What’s the problem? The BNP is a legal party with a democratically elected leader (more than Labour can say). Is the BNP good for Britain? Probably not. Am I happy that Nick Griffin is on Question Time? Not really.
My question is was it inevitable? Given where we are now, politically, probably but it could have been prevented if not for Government incompetence and arrogance coupled with the apathy of the population in general.
Oh, so it’s someone else’s fault then!
Government failed to grasp how strongly people feel about uncontrolled immigration and whenever anyone tried to raise the issue there were cries of ‘racist’. It isn’t racist to control immigration. Immigration should be used by the Country to enable us to attract people who can make a contribution. It should also be used to help people who need it i.e. economic migrants, refugees. It should not be a free for all.
So, the Government has failed consistently to manage immigration. As for the electorate, they just stand by and let it happen because they are too interested in their own feeble attempts to become rich and famous, go shopping or are otherwise wrapped up in their own little world. You may not have voted for our illustrious leaders but what have you done to keep them out?
So the BNP now have a platform and it’s legal. Nick Griffin may make a complete arse of himself on Question Time but it probably won’t matter one jot. The people that follow him mostly can’t string a sentence together anyway so a few BNP gaffes will probably raise applause in the pub. The political figures that snipe at him will only look more out of touch with an increasingly disgruntled electorate.
It could so easily have been avoided…
