The Leader of the British National Party Nick Griffen, has brushed aside criticism over his appearance on popular BBC Current Affairs Programme Question Time.
"I must admit I was extremely nervous before going on the show. I thought I would have to talk a lot, explain my past comments, and set forward the Party's policy for the forthcoming elections. To my delight, the bleeding heart liberals kept my talk time down to a minimum. There were a few scary moments when I was afforded the opportunity to speak my mind, but luckily people generally interrupted after a few seconds of awkward silence".
It is believed support for the BNP has been bolstered significantly from the television exposure.
"They never gave me a chance to express my real views, and I can't thank them enough for that".
Mr. Griffen also revealed he felt the BBC filling the audience and panel with 'ethnic minorities', was also a great help.
"People could see that they were all against me, and it was fantastic. With any luck they will continue to crucify me until I become a great Martyr, and sweep into 10 Downing Street without ever having develop any policies to deal with Economy, Unemployment, the failing Health and Education systems or Violent Crime. If Hitler can come into power on a wave of underdog sympathy because of the failings of the established Party's, while at the same time only having vague policies, I don't see why I can't. If we do get into power at the next General Election, I may actually keep the BBC, the more they prevent me from making an idiot out of myself, the more popular I get".
