Last year I interviewed Nick Griffin on the European election night programme. If I am honest, I wasn't much looking forward to it. You see, I had never heard an interview with Griffin which had actually produced more light than heat. Interviewers seemed to think that bludgeoning him and interrupting him after every three words would show him up for what he is - whatever that is. I decided to interview him in exactly the same way as I would anyone else. And that's why I wasn't looking forward to it, as I was pretty sure I'd get slagged off for being "too soft" on him. I just take the view that aggressive questioning rarely gets results. As it turned out, I made the right decision and most people seemed to think that my approach enabled people to learn more about Mr Griffin and his attitudes than a hectoring interview would have done.
Anyway, all this is a preamble to the fact that tomorrow afternoon I'll be interviewing Nick Griffin again, this time for TOTAL POLITICS. I won't be changing my approach, and as normal, I'm going to ask my blogreaders to suggest some lines of questioning. I might or might not decide to use them.
