Well that was entertaining.Â ‘Dick’ Griffin, as one audience member called him was about as uninspiring as could have been expected and seemed to take a perverse pleasure in metaphorically dropping his pants, inviting everyone to queue up to kick him.Twitter really came into its own tonight both for some of the comments made under the trending topic #bbcqt and for the parallel universe of @realnickgriffin. Â There was speculation about who would win in a fight between militant homosexuals and non-violent Klansmen and attempts to set up a flashmob of same-sex kissing outside the BNP HQ.
That would be hilarious, and I think I would be up for that, but isn’t the BNP HQ miles away in Wrexham or somewhere like that?
Griffin shot himself in the foot so many times he probably had to be carried home afterwards.
I don’t think I have enjoyed Question Time so much since Robin Day was in the chair, although to be honest I haven’t really watched it much since Robin Day was in the chair, and hardly at all since the panel was increased to five.
And then something stopped me in mid laugh: the realisation that this idiot managed to get enough votes to be elected and represents Britain in the EU parliament.Â There might be foreigners seeing him speak somewhere who think he actually speaks for us.Â Its a bit like the feeling I got when Boris Johnson was at the Olympics handover ceremony, but more sinister.
Spare a thought for the casualty departments in the North, which are probably creaking at the seams with injuries from people kicking themselves and slapping their foreheads that they stayed at home on polling day and let it happen.
