How to defeat the BNP on the BBC

A clever letter in the Guardian

I like the letter that Andy Hunter from Hull had published today in the Guardian:

If the BBC is to invite the BNP on to Question Time, might I suggest that the other political parties all send non-white Britons to represent their point of view, to further emphasise how extreme is the BNP view of the country. Also, it is likely that the BNP would in turn "refuse to share a platform" with such people.

Who would be on this "dream" panel of minorities? The shadow community cohesion minister Sayeeda Warsi from the Tories? Susan Kramer from the Lib Dems? The higher education minister David Lammy from Labour? Could a Muslim, a Jew and a black man tear apart Nick Griffin, or even scare him off the show? I would like to think so.

Who would be on your "dream" QT panel to face the BNP leader?
