So the BNP leader Nick Griffin has been found not guilty in his trial for "Incitement to racial hatred".

Maybe its time people like the Chancellor stop telling people how they should think -

"I think any preaching of religious or racial hatred will offend mainstream opinion in this country and I think we've got to do whatever we can to root it out from whatever quarter it comes.

"And if that means we've got to look at the laws again I think we will have to do so".

Quite simply, people in this country are and always should be free to speak their mind. Setting aside for a moment the fact that this is something which generations (and countless millions) of British people have fought and died to preserve, censoring the views of a citizen does not change their mind!

All over the western world there is debate on Immigration and its effects, why should the UK be any different?

We are a tolerant country, perhaps too tolerant at times but there comes a point where people should say "enough is enough".

Looking at the figures from the early 90's shows a huge rise in the population of this small country. The public are quite right to want to debate this.

However, the PC brigade have decided we mustn't discuss this, if we do we're automatically branded a racist or a bigot. This really must stop.

I'm no supporter of the BNP but It has to be said their policies on the whole reflect the views of a large part of our society and perhaps are a majority view.

Although I do feel that this paragraph may cause concern for most of us -

"and the introduction of a system of voluntary resettlement whereby those immigrants who are legally here will be afforded the opportunity to return to their lands of ethnic origin assisted by a generous financial incentives both for individuals and for the countries in question".

Certainly, the three mainstream parties have a very similar approach [to each other] on these issues. It could be argued that we, in effect have a one party state.

Its important to ask why turnout at elections is so low and why such a small proportion of the electorate actually vote for the majority party.

In the 2005 General Election turnout was 61% and the Labour party secured 35% of the vote. So to govern this country you only need to get 25% of the UK electorate voting for you.

That is a scandal and his been totally ignored by all parties - perhaps because it works in their favour.

The self censorship shown by British political parties has also been reflected in the media yet if you simply ask people what they think, these views tend to differ significantly from what people are instructed to think by their leaders.

Maybe now he has been found innocent, the easy villification and demonising carried out by the PC brigade will become harder and the BNP and other parties will get a voice so they can start to get their message out to the electorate.
