Dr Strangelove of British Politics

Jack Straw couldn’t have put it more aptly when he called Nick Griffin, Dr Strangelove of British Politics during Question Time on BBC. It was undoubtedly one of the most interesting panel discussions I have ever seen.

For the record, I simply abhor the man called Nick Griffin, for his archaic ideas and hate politics. But while watching Question Time, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him. You could see he was jumpy, facing a hostile panel and an even more hostile audience.

One woman called him ‘wolf in a garb of sheep’. Another man began his question by saying “My question is for Dick, beg your pardon, Nick Griffiin…”.  They both got a huge round of applause from other members of audience. It was evident, he was alone in there and he had no option but try answering all the allegations as coolly as possible.

He denied any association with the Nazis or Ku Klux Klan. When pointed that there is video footage of him rubbing shoulders with Stephen Black, he said he was merely sharing a platform with a ‘non-violent’ division of KKK. What a joke!

He should take a cue from the show and accept that Britishers are not with BNP. One cannot win on grounds of racism, anti-semitic views and pure hate for those who are an integral part of the social fabric. He should pack his bags and go to Mumbai, and for sure he will find his soul mate in Raj Thackeray of MNS.

Both Raj and Nick share similar views about immigration, sex education and Islam. It could have been Raj Thackeray sitting there and he would have answered the same allegations (only difference is that he would have spoken in Marathi, as it is against his ideas to use Hindi/English or any other foreign language). They are so alike that it’s not even funny. It’s a shame that they both are against homosexuality; or else they would have a perfect couple.
