    I think I would have liked to have seen the whole exchange, but this mix was undoubtedly more entertaining.

    Relatedly, did you know that Joe Strummer’s brother joined the National Front? He committed suicide a few years later, but that probably had nothing to do with being a fascist.

    The whole exchange was a farce. It was loads of accoladal posturing by the main parties and nobody actually letting Griffin speak. Why on earth invite him on and then refuse to let him answer anything without booing him or talking over him. You can’t fight fascism by refusing to address it. It was disastrously embarrassing as an academic debate, and the audience was full of braying idiots.

    BUT

    This video was hilarious!
