Nazi Scum Off Our Streets!
There were protests against Nazi Nick Griffin appearing on the BBC's flagship programme, Question Time this evening in Nottingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Nottingham, Belfast and of course in London where I joined Louise, who has some good pictures of the event and thousands of others outside BBC TV Centre on Wood Lane.
Placards were carried proudly aloft, banners waved in the air, the crowd a demographic cross-section of multi-cultural, multi-ethnic London.
I ran into Jacob and Delmi who used to work at Housmans and met Stuart King of Permanent Revolution who seemed like a decent cove but would probably be horrified, or at the very least deeply confused by this blog. Towards the end, the demonstration moved down Wood Lane towards Uxbridge Road, ending up at the mouth of Frithville Gardens, from whence it was rumoured Nazi Nick would be exiting. In the event he was spirited off elsewhere, though we bawled at a few straggly fascists who were escorted off by the plod.
