There's been a lot of talk among leftish bloggers about boycotting Total Politics over the fact that we are publishing an interview with BNP leader Nick Griffin in our next issue (out next Friday). They cling to the old student union idea of 'no platform'. Labour MP Denis MacShane even resigned from the Total Politics editorial board over the issue.
Today, The Guardian's John Harris has written a lengthy (and very good) analysis about the BNP campaign in Barking, which includes a detailed interview with Nick Griffin.
I await a tweet from Denis MacShane announcing that he will never write for The Guardian again, and a series of blogposts from various leftist bloggers boycotting The Guardian.
I suspect I shall wait in vain.
UPDATE: Someone just sent me a link to a video about the BNP and Denis MacShane last May. Watching it again, I don't take a word of it back. And at least it shows my view is consistent! The BNP must be taken on - on the streets and in the media.
