Marr Nails Griffin on Sinking Immigrant Boats
So, who saw Andrew Marr interviewing Nick Griffin this morning? I thought Marr asked him some good questions, without the normal hectoring and aggression which is normally the mark of interviews with Griffin. And in my view, although Griffin was quite eloquent, he dug himself deeper and deeper as the interview went on. Marr asked him if he had recently said that boats carrying illegal immigrants from North Africa across the Med should be sunk. He admitted that he had and although he tried to explain his way out of it, any credibility he had built up during the rest of the interview was shot to pieces.
