The British National Party headquarters has been picketed by anti-BBC protesters. Angry scenes have taken place as a result of party leader Nick Griffin agreeing to appear on a BBC television program. The BBC is a controversial organisation, accused of extremist liberal tendencies. Recently ethnic minorities were shown in a good light on one television program.
One protester, Ms Janice O'Titswobble said "What is the world coming to when a democratically elected politician is accepting invitations from these lunatics? Surely he knows what they stand for, it's hardly a secret."
Nick Griffin explained why he had agreed to appear on Question Time. "I want to challenge what the BBC stand for. I think banning the BBC is not the answer. I want people to watch the BBC on the telly at home and say 'this is utter rubbish, why don't we vote against them'. It's that simple."
The BBC has grown in strength recently due to continued failings of the main rival broadcasters. New ITV has failed to deliver for the nation, Channel 4 is bankrupt and Channel 5 is yet to decide whether it is a serious broadcaster or one big joke. Sky has managed to steal most major sporting events from the BBC but remains part of the mainstream.
BBC Director General Herr Thompson said "We continue to fight for a national liberal movement. Heil Hitler!"
