Bonnie Greer is to go head-to-head with the British National party leader Nick Griffin in an explosive edition of BBC1’s Question Time next week.
inthenews.co.uk was confirming with the BBC on Tuesday the American-born playwright’s participation in the programme, due to be filmed live next Thursday in west London.
Justice secretary Jack Straw and Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman Chris Huhne are already signed up to appear, while the Conservative party is yet to announce who its representative will be.
The programme is due to be filmed at the corporation’s headquarters in White City, with a row about who funds the policing operation yet to be resolved.
Anti-fascist campaigners have vowed to hold protests outside the BBC HQ on the night of the programme, including leafleting Beeb staff to down tools for the day and a pledge to prevent Mr Griffin from entering the studio.
The BBC has come under fire in recent weeks for its increased coverage of the far-right BNP since it won seats in the European parliament.
Well they don't know Nick Griffin very well then, do they?
As I've stated before Nick will run rings around almost anyone they chose to pit against him.
Footnote: Since the extra policing mentioned will be to subdue the vile UAF, perhaps their masters, The Government and Unions should stump up.
