I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but this could be an interesting night in Trinity. I'm not a fan of Griffin has been quite impressive on the rare occasions that he gets television coverage.
Regardless of his media performance, I dont believe any dues can be paid to this man. He was an acolyte of people like Colin Jordan and John Tyndall who were out an out Nazis. He has been open about his prior willingness to deny the Holocaust. He was part of a movement that openly welcomed Combat 18.
The guy is not a nice man, and his ideology is not very nice either.
The recurring 'freedom of speech' who-ha that happens in Trinity. I remember when David Irving - the dingbat Holocaust denier, passing himself off as a 'historian' -came to speak at the 'Hist'. Enormous uproar and tension. Of course it would have been much more powerful if everybody (Edit: "if we", I played my part in that circus too) just ignored the clown.
