    Not that Celtic 'deserved to win', that they were so pathetic in the second half and are now effectively out of Europe. :facepalm:

    Ah, I wondered if that was what you meant, but wasn't sure, sorry. You could fall in if you wanted - there's a curved table, with a raised 'Q' in front. The hole in the middle is there - although obviously it's only a foot or so deep, to the ground.

    I was on Question Time a couple years ago.

    What did everyone think of it?

    I thought it went quite well, Griffin didn't really have much of a response to any of the more probing questions, just a sort of smug smile, and I found it frankly laughable, as did the audience, when he said that "race doesn't matter," when the BNP are quite evidently a single policy party based on race.

    Also, Griffin attacking Straw's father was frankly pathetic.

    That was quite enjoyable. Lots of unsurprising content, but a few gems.

    It's pretty easy to get on - they advertise in advance where they're going to be, you apply via the website and then have a brief phone interview where they ask you for some administrative details and some current affairs stuff (I can't remember any details, but it's worth thinking of a few questions you might ask, for example).

    And then he tried to make up some ***** about being unable to say why due to European Law. He really struggled to hide his contradictory ideas, nor could he deny his extremist quotes(though he tried anyway).

    The brilliant thing was that anyone with half a brain will realize that Griffin's arguments were almost entirely such common fallacies that they have names. The less brilliant thing is that the majority of people voting for Griffin don't have half a brain. Or rather, aren't educated, and so his invidious vitriol can grasp hold with the downtrodden, and those who feel disillusioned and neglected by the rest of the political parties.

    Full text of the Rivers of Blood speech is thoroughly worth reading, in my opinion.

    I agree with Kirsten that the American women was the best. I wasn't to keen on the conservative panelist though, wasn't convinced on her answer to the question about homosexuality.

    That was classic.


    The one thing I will say was that everyone was a bit too centred on attacking Griffin himself, and not on illustrating how ludicrous the parties policies are, and would be for Britain.

    Anyway I should probably stop ranting, since someone who knows more about politics will undoubtebly pick me up on someething.:o:

    Yes, and it became as puerile as Griffin himself at times. I wanted to slap the guy who called him '****' :rolleyes: I mean, really. Are you actually twelve years old?
