Councillor in BNP poster row


A LABOUR councillor has hit back at the British National Party (BNP) after a video of her taking down a campaign poster promoting the right wing group was posted on the internet.

So what has happened to freedom of speech and freedom of the press?

That's a fair point...but I was talking from a personal viewpoint..in that I would merely have 'vandalised' their property, rather than making a political statement!! :wink:

Problem with free speech is that while the BNP have every right to (try) to put across their message, the masses are poisoned by the deeds of a nasty minority and the voices of all the others who disapprove and who paint the BNP as racist Nazis.

Once the Labour Party were just "troublemaking Bolshies," now they are in power, and have been in and out of power for decades. True politicians should uphold democracy and should voluntarily refrain from defaming any parties trying to compete in the democratic process.

Mind you, they don't do themselves any favours trying to change their image, do they? They could do with getting rid of Griffin and getting a leader who isn't a bigot.
