Total Politics: Dominic Carman responds to the Nick Griffin interview

Following Total Politics’s controversial decision to interview Nick Griffin, the magazine’s website is also running responses to it, including one from Dominic Carman (Lib Dem candidate for the same Barking constituency as Nick Griffin):

Take three of Griffin’s answers from the Total Politics interview and contrast them with what he told me privately:

On Afghanistan: “The only way you could win there is if you nuked it, which can’t be done.” He told me: “We should send (British) troops in to Afghanistan…and we should obliterate as many cities as it takes.”

On VAT: “We’ve never said we’re increasing VAT.” He told me: “Income tax should be abolished. We need a complete shift from direct to indirect taxation.”

On Violence: “We do not practise or want to practise violence against anyone”. He told me: ”We (i.e. white people) have a right, arguably a duty to take arms…the only thing when it comes to that an oppressed minority will do to preserve itself will be by physical force.”

So Griffin’s real plans include mass civilian bombing in Afghanistan, a catastrophically high rate of VAT and armed gangs on our streets. Truly barking.

Good to see also Dominic Carman doing this event to brief journalists on the BNP.

  • Yes, truly barking when one considers that VAT was imposed on us by the dreaded Common Market.
