Holocaust survivors will confront BNP on Question Time

Breaking News

The question has split the world of broadcasting and divided opinion across the country: should the BBC have invited the far-right British National Party to take part in this week's edition of Question Time, its flagship panel programme?

Views are polarised. While supporters of the decision say that it is the price Britain pays for free speech, and that the BBC has a duty to reflect a broad range of opinion, opponents have condemned the Corporation for offering the party an opportunity to promote its anti-immigrant views.

Now The Sunday Telegraph can reveal:

  • Holocaust survivors and victims of racist attacks plan to confront the BNP's leader Nick Griffin during the programme over his past as a holocaust denier with a conviction for inciting racial hatred.
