What did Stephen Nolan having BNP leader Nick Griffin on his live BBC TV show achieve?

Face of the 'master race': BNP leader Nick Griffin MEP

THE appearance of Nick Griffin MEP, leader of the neo-fascist British National Party, at the Orange Order's Ulster Covenant Centenary events at Stormont on Saturday provoked criticism on Twitter.

Griffin responded on Twitter at the start of a diatribe over several days that led to complaints to the PSNI under race-hate laws:

“So Ulster pics have upset my republican stalkers. Tell you what, the bodhran can’t match the lambeg, you Fenian bastards.”

Poll Results:

Total votes: 261

  • Gave the BNP a platform even if Griffin is an idiot: 81 (31%)
  • Helped expose Nick Griffin as an idiot: 93 (35.6%)
  • Both: 87 (33.3%)
