Question time, commenting on it like everyone else-but shortly

Rarely have I found myself feeling sorry for Mr. Griffin for I do not support his very strange views nor his party's policies. It was quite clearly shown that the BNP's views are at best 'odd' but the whole Question Time arrangement was a complete farce. Regardless of what you think of the man, he was outnumbered by the entire audience including the host and the rest of the panel. Is that a way to hold an impartial and unbiased debate on politics?

No, I truly felt sorry for Mr. Griffin tonight not as a BNP spokesman, not as a racist but simply for the ubiquitous gang-up he received from every angle, where there was not even an attempt made by the BBC to conceal the whole orchestrated charade that tonight passed for 'debate'.

It was all rather predictable, and a touch boring, wasn't it? The middle class, cosmopolitan, heavily studented (read: crusty) audience was never going to dissuade the BNP's largely northern working class votership. For it's the pontifications of those same middle class types that have led to the catastrophe that has allowed the BNP to make their gains.

But yes, as a human being, it was difficult not to feel some sympathy for him. The "debate" was childish, single issue (aren't the trendies supposed to hate single issue pursuits??), and we essentially learned absolutely nothing.
