And finally tonight...I couldn't help but be interested in the news that Iain Dale is to interview Nick Griffin tomorrow (well, probably today now). Dale has done this piece inviting people to suggest what he should ask Griffin. I rather liked this contributor ('David')'s comment (at March 07, 2010 8:51 pm):
"In the BNP's general election manifesto for 2005 - hidden away in the "environment" section - was the following:
"We will end immigration to the UK and reduce our land's population burden by creating firm but voluntary incentives for immigrants and their descendants to return home."
I am amazed how few fellow journalists pick up the BNP on this point.
What is "firm"? Where is "home"?
Does this include the likes of Amir Khan, Magdi Yakoub, Dame Kelly Holmes, etc?"
Update: this has all blown up of course and rightly become the subject of a 'no platform' vs 'they're democratically-elected' debate at Though Cowards Flinch amongst other places. In this case, I do veer towards 'no platform'.
