(One) Question Time

Repulsed by Nick Griffin and all he and his party stands for... However, what I saw tonight was not Question Time.

Has this programme ever been so dominated by one issue - knocking one panelist? We shouldn't feel bad as Mr Griffin put himself up for ridicule and richly deserved it. Besides, there had to be some time spent on his party's policies but this programme was clearly a set-up and as a democrat I am slightly shocked. I have always enjoyed and respected Question Time, but tonight, the programme descended into a shin-kicking match (though it was a sometimes [read mainly] pleasant kicking match). Unfortunately, there were no questions, but only one question.

Everyone quite rightly ganged up on Griffin, and Griffin himself didn't rise to the challenge and thankfully turned out to be a poor orator with little grasp of the facts.

Let's hope his performance has only impressed the few, and that misguided voters of the past steer clear of voting for the BNP in the future.

It is unfortunate that there are people with the same views as Griffin. They should not be allowed to be in politics.

The BNP have had over 1,000,000 votes in the UK. They cannot be ignored.

it was just theatre...viewing figures jobby, Robin Day if he was still alive would have walked out before this sort of show.. the producers missed a huge opportunity, what did griffin think of the environment? the NHS? or the biggest political theme, the economic recession? This would have exposed griffin and BNP as having little brevity and be a waisted vote
