TUC-Trade Union Censorship

It seems that the dinosaurs of the trade union movement are still roaming parts of the earth, trying to tell you and me who we should be allowed to listen to on BBC Question Time.

Yes you've guessed it, Gerry Morrissey, of the TV technicians' union Bectu is urging his members to boycott and pull the plug on the BNP leader Nick Griffin's appearance on the current affairs show on 22 October.

General secretary Gerry Morrissey said: "We believe there should be no media coverage of the BNP and I have raised this issue with the director general, Mark Thompson.

"He said they have been invited on to the programme because they have won elections, but we strongly disagree.

"We will be arranging a demonstration and lobby outside the Question Time studios and we will be working with anti-fascist groups to ensure there is a significant turn out."

We all know that those 'anti-fascist groups' largely consist of people just as bad, thoroughly unpleasant and anti-freedom and democracy as the BNP. We need no pious lectures from those idiots about democracy, disagree with them and you're more than likely to get a brick in your face. Two sides of the same coin in my opinion.

When I don't vote BNP I want it to be because I have heard the arguments and used reason. I don't want to not vote BNP because some fascist/anti-fascist trade union zombie has had a word in the shell-like of Mark Thompson, and put another nail in the coffin of free speech and liberty.

I wish these people would just let Griffin appear on Question Time, and stop trying to block it.

I thought we lived in a democracy?

Unfortunately, a significant number of people saw fit to vote for the BNP. But the only way they will be beaten is if they're allowed a platform so that people can really see what they're like.

Unless morons like the UAF think the rest of us are too stupid to make our own minds up about the BNP, and feel they have to tell us what to believe......How very democratic.....

I fear that nutters like Gerry Morrissey do harm than good when it comes to the BNP.

Dead right MikeP. The UAF are the best recruiting segeant the BNP have ever had.

A sense of proportion is needed, after a leaflet dropping through every letterbox in England in the EU elections they still only mustered 6%.

I think some see a 1930s style romantic battle against the evil fascism. Sadly all some them, UAF included do, is actually make the BNP look more reasonable than they are.
