Following the appearance on Question Time by British National Party leader Nick Griffin, a Slough man has blamed the BBC for becoming a convert to the right wing party.
Simon Fisher, 42, says his 50 minute exposure to the BNP leader changed his life long attitudes of temperance and liberalism over night, and has even altered his sexuality.
"I was curious to see what all the fuss was about" said Fisher, "and after the show I remember thinking what a prat Nick Griffin looked as he squirmed under the spotlight".
But Fisher was shocked when he woke up the next morning and discovered he had an irrational hatred of black people.
"I don't know where it came from. One minute say I was saying 'hello' to our Jamaican postman, the next I was standing on the door giving him a Nazi salute and singing "Deutschland über alles".
Worse was to follow when Fisher found himself shaving his beard into a neat little square moustache and parting his hair over to one side.
A homosexual since his early 20s, Fisher also found his sexuality had changed over night.
"I was sickened by an old copy of the Gay Times I found in the magazine rack, I burned it in the fireplace and went out and bought myself a pile of jazz mags like Escort and Fiesta".
"My world has been turned upside down, and I blame the BBC" said Fisher as he scanned small adds looking for Nazi memorabilia.
Anti-fascists campaigners were quick to react.
"This is what we feared" said Ms Jo Hughes, a spokesperson for one of the groups that were protesting outside the BBC.
"People like Nick Griffin are anti-freedom of speech, anti-democratic, use violence and intimidation to further their cause and want to impose their will on everyone else" she said "that's why we took the unilateral decision to stop a democratically elected leader from having a public platform and tried to prevent people from seeing the programme".
"People will remember the antics of Moseley's brown-shirts and we'll do everything in our power to stop extremist mobs from returning to our streets and taking the law into their own hands" said Hughes who's group tried to storm the BBC, trapping terrified members of the public within the building for some hours. Three police officers were hurt in the scuffles, one needing hospital treatment.
Simon Fisher, meanwhile, is trying to adjust to his new way of life.
"I thought I was smart enough to make my own mind up, but clearly I was not equipped to watch some sweaty, bumbling, incoherent bigot on TV".
"I can only thank God that we have unelected, unaccountable anti-fascist groups out there who are trying to stop the public from seeing stuff like this", he said.
"Seig hiel" he added, before spraying "NF" on his Somali neighbours front door.
