In Defence Of Nick Griffin

with 5 comments

"Oh let him in. He's harmless really!"

I am not a supporter of the BNP but I defend their right to campaign for their policies, especially those individuals who have been elected to office.

Despite his crass, discourteous behaviour, it was a mistake to have Nick Griffin barred from the Queen’s garden party.  He was invited there as an elected MEP and he should have been welcomed in accordance with his office.

A bad mistake.  Far too clumsy to have been made by any member of the Royal Family itself.

Politically Correct Fools

Come Fly With Me!

It is a crazy and entirely self-defeating idea to protest at the appearance of Nick Griffin on Question Time.

Similarly, to complain of the BNP’s use of World War II images and propaganda is just nonsense. Those who cling to the oily and sticky ideas of political correctness prove themselves to be fools again and again.

I’d rather have some straightforward anti-Nazi nutter chanting in my face than these slimy, unpleasant, dishonest, machiavellian meddlers. These creeps who stir up opposition even to the BNP’s existence, who are so utterly hypocritical in their wish to censor and repress the BNP.  Are they so insecure in their own beliefs that they think the BNP can ever make any real progress?

I applaud the BBC for having the courage to show a pretty young protestor being dragged across a polished floor screaming “This is what they do to protect the Nazis. Shame on you BBC!”.

On the contrary, congratulations to the BBC. Your conduct throughout this affair has been noble and of the highest standard of fairness and equality.

I think Nick Griffin is a pretty dubious and unpleasant character. I would like to hear more from him about his policies and I’d like to see him quizzed by Andrew Marr or Jeremy Paxman. At present I don’t understand exactly what he really advocates. Like millions of British citizens, I do not consider myself a racist but I do believe in Britain for the British. I don’t understand why a Muslim Lawyers or a Black Police Officers organisation is OK but an organisation for white British is denounced and reviled.

This debate needs to be aired.  We need to hear more from Mr Griffin so that we can make up our own minds.  Those who seek to silence him are their own worst enemies.

Where Are The Police – Again?

Mob Rule

Mob Rule

In one of the most tightly policed locations in the country a mob is allowed to shout down, assault and drive off Nick Griffin, the new BNP MEP without any police intervention?   See the full story here.

I am very, very frightened by this.  Much more so than by the election of a couple of idiots to a stage where they will be able to make even bigger fools of themselves.

Sir Paul Stephenson! Are you a man or a mouse, a police officer or a political servant?

Man Or Mouse?

Man Or Mouse?

You seem to act under ruling party political direction when it is unnecessary – Damian Green.  You fail to act when it is crucial – banker robbers, MPs expenses, police violence and today’s blatant blind eye.

Keep The Church Out Of Elections

I do not support the BNP but I defend its right to state its case and campaign for election.  I have considerable sympathy with its complaint that it is not considered racist to have a black association or a Muslim group but the BNP is branded racist for seeking to represent the white British.  This is unjust.

It’s fair game for other politicians to attack the BNP but the call made today by the Church?  This is outrageous.   While there are certainly many good Christians and Church members, this week we have had to listen to the horrific truth of child abuse by the Church in Ireland.  Only the following day the new Catholic Archbishop Nichols of Westminster is enthroned and makes the disgraceful judgment that it was courageous for some of the priests to confess their dreadful crimes.

The most eloquent advice I have ever heard on the subject of the Church comes from Messrs Crosby, Stills and Nash:

“Too many people have died in the name of Christ for anyone to heed the call”

Too much evil and wickedness has been perpetrated across hundreds of years by the Church for it to have any relevance or role in our elections.  Stick to pastoral work with individuals and you’re entitled to promote your individual doctrine and beliefs but stay out of the business of parliament and government.
