Sky falls in, few notice!



I heard a political first this morning on the BBC today Programme, with the famously dripping-wet journalist Evan Davies, who used to be a BBC economics editor, interviewing Nick Griffin of BNP fame, and shock, horror, race wasn’t even mentioned!

Griffin was quizzed on the economics of tariff protection against cheap imports from China, and whilst he made a fair job of replying to Davies’ questions, I was stuck by the very surreality of a really liberally-inclined BBC Journalist asking a BNP Leader about anything else besides immigration, race and the political slant which for so long the BNP has been tarred with.

Has the BBC been told to back off the stridency after the Question time debacle, where a significant vote of sympathy was rendered to the BNP after the avalanche of hysteria and hatred rained down on Nick Griffin’s shoulders? Have the BBC staffers accepted that the BNP have two M.E.P.s, have a significant following in many areas, and therefore deserve treatment like civilised people, instead of a national Polecat?
