Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If this has been done before, please bin! However, this QT should be interesting. Labour generally refuse to share any sort of platform with the BNP, but this time Jack Straw will be on stage with Nick Griffin.

    I do wonder if Jack Straw is going to get an easy ride given that Griffin tends to polarise opinion. Nonetheles, he is democratically elected. Perhaps Jack Straws hopes that his own expenses claims will go overlooked or be drowned out by the cries of "racists out"?...

    Edited for being a mong!
     
  2. Am I being mental or does it say the programme will be going out on Oct 22nd?
     
  3. Standby for a QT of pantomime proportions with all the booing and hissing.

    I fully expect to hear the call of "look out Jack,he's behind you."

    I hope that Griffins presence will prompt some serious debate about immigration as that is the key to getting rid of national socialists like BNP.

    I dont think its going to happen though,Labour can be torn to shreds over immigration policy if it is debated in any meaningful way and so I confidently predict that whenever the going gets tough for Straw he will shrilly scream 'rascist' and the obliging QT audience will lap it up and forget any sensible points that are raised.
     
  4. I would have thought that Straw was vulnerable to the challenge that he's only in Parliament because of the votes of Asian immigrants, so of course he can't see a problem. I would think that he's a poor choice for the Labour person.

    But other posters are right, there won't be a debate, it'll just be a shouting match, and Griffin will just smile and collect the votes.
     
  5. Jack Straw, this was the foreign secretary who didn’t go anywhere or say anything, (not a bad idea if you’re in the labour party).
    Nick ‘the pr1ck’ Griffin must be shittin himself.

    What we really want is a panel with Hislop, Ken Clarke/Liam Fox, Ashdown/Cable, Littlejohn/Clarkson....desperately trying to think of a labour mp with a backbone and failing.... Tony Benn, oh and that Chackrabati woman, can’t stick her but good entertainment if Griffin’s on.
     
  6. I thought my hangover was seriously affecting me for a while then!
     
  7. It's going to be a 'don't miss' edition! :twisted:
     
  8. Could be an interesting QT but I doubt whether it will take place.
     
  9. I believe that David Starkey is on the Griffin programme - I would hope for Hislop but Starkey pulls no punches.
     
  10. This is going to be a very interesting watching Question Time with Nick Griffin & Jack Straw.
     
  11. Could be good with him when Griffin starts spouting about heritage etc.

    Jack Straw is weak and I cant see him laying into Griffin, be like being mauled by a toothless hamster.

    Another good one for the panel, total dick, but I reckon it would wind Griffin right up............

    Ken Livinstone?
     
  12. Is this Chubbs latest incarnation?

    Would be more fun to watch Griffin and Baroness Scotland slugging it out for the moral high ground...

    Yes
     
  15. Might also tempt Griffin to put his foot in it by saying that Starkey only supports minorities because by virtue of being gay, he is a minority himself.
