The reasoning behind Nick Griffin’s refusal on Question Time to explain his views on the Holocaust was a legal nonsense and revealed far more about himself and the views of his party than he might have hoped.
Those who persistently and deliberately misrepresent and manipulate historical evidence on the Holocaust have a hidden agenda to promote division and hatred. Griffin’s performance, and the publicity he has received in the media over the last few weeks, are a warning to us all that we must prevent the BNP making further inroads, and underlines why Holocaust education in schools is so crucial — to educate students on the dangers of allowing the politics of hatred to gain a foothold in society.

It does concern me that the BNP leader appearing on Question Time has received more coverage than the invitation by the Conservatives to form a working relationship with European leaders with a far-right past. Certainly we need to keep a close watch on Nick Griffin and his cohorts, but to give Michal Kaminski and Roberts Zile a cloak of respectability by our leading politicians and Jewish leaders is inexplicable.
