      I’m confused Sunny- why have the shot of the screen? Is it in a different part of the Guardian?

    3. zaffer — on 8th June, 2009 at 12:47 pm

    4. El Cid — on 8th June, 2009 at 1:23 pm  

      I agree. Good article.

    5. Jai — on 8th June, 2009 at 1:42 pm  

      Brilliant article, Sunny. Well done.

      Some encouraging remarks in the ensuing Guardian comments thread too, which is good to see.

      Can I see this Dimbleby interview with NG anywhere online folks?

    7. Sunny — on 8th June, 2009 at 1:54 pm  

      Lol, no it’s the same article, but it’s on the front page of the Guardian and second from the top. Just thought I’d plug myself. Heh

      thanks all

      [...] being in their everyday conceptions a racist. One of the first things the Labour Party could do in returning to their core values is to begin to engage with what makes a non-racist voter feel so disaffected as to cast a racist [...]

      Good article I thought.
      And not all the comments are from CiF nutters!

    10. Leon — on 8th June, 2009 at 2:53 pm  

      It’s on the front page of the Guardian website, well done Mr H for a very decent piece!

      i agree good article…at least we can now see nick griffin for the total twat he is.

      can’t somebody at channel 4 commission a film on this bnp utopia and possibly explore what an ‘all white ‘British’ Britain would look like??? maybe then ppl would see what a load of shite the bnp spout…

    12. Amrit — on 8th June, 2009 at 6:51 pm  

      Yay, Sunny!

    13. Ravi Naik — on 8th June, 2009 at 6:58 pm  

      Just read your article… it cheered me up. Well done!

    14. Don — on 8th June, 2009 at 7:04 pm  

      Good for you, front page and a damn good article.

      Expect a several hundred percent increase in BNP trolls.

      I’ll check the site in a minute but I have jusr read your contribution to the debate on page 28 “Now take the BNP seriously”.

      Are you serious Sunny? There are some of us out here who have been taking the BNP seriously for years and have been accused of talking them up. All of a sudden everyone has woken up.

      The people you met at Barking Abbey a few weeks ago on Sunday morning certainly take them seriously as did my friend Blair Peach who was killed thirty years ago opposing the NF in Southall. I will look at the website but the article in the paper is an insult to all of us who have spent decades fighting the far right and especially to Blair.

      Sunny, good article in the main. But you are wrong, they have to be met head-on something Blunkett and everyone after him failed to do. They thought the impossible and delivered the implausible.

      Here is how its done:

      Cameron -

      ‘David Cameron, the Conservative leader, said yesterday the result was “desperately depressing” and the main parties had to win back those who had voted for the far-right party.

      “What the mainstream parties have to do is prove their worth – get on the doorstep, explain to people how we are going to take up their concerns, how we are going to respond to their issues,” he said. “That is the way to beat these dreadful people.” ‘

      What UAF have to say, after their direct action:

      ‘ Weyman Bennett, the protest organiser and national secretary of Unite Against Fascism, said he believed it was important to stand up to the BNP.

      “The majority of people did not vote for the BNP. They did not vote at all,” he said. “The BNP was able to dupe them into saying that they had an answer to people’s problems. They presented themselves as a mainstream party. The reality was, because the turnout was so low, they actually got elected.” ‘

      And the man who kicked off the whole Anti-Nazi League pitches in with:

      ‘ Peter Hain, the newly appointed Welsh secretary, said: “It’s a shameful stain on Britain that we now have racists and fascists representing our country. It is vital that everyone now isolates and confronts the BNP and works with United Against Fascism to defeat them.” ‘
