Nick Griffin describes the BNP as non-racist. Because he has to.

But Irving is a queer fellow. He virtually invited his own imprisonment in Austria by expounding his views knowing he was breaking the law. But holocaust denial is not illegal in the UK, nor should it be imo. Denying a historical fact doesnt harm anyone, it just makes you look daft. I know why Germany and Austria still have those laws, but really its a nonsense. The actual number of people killed under the nazi extermination programmes is not known with certainty. But if x is the number of Jews killed, saying x=6,000,000 is legal but saying as Irving does that x=0 or certainly much less than 6 million is illegal. So where's the cut off point? 3 million? 3,000,001 legal, 2,999,999 illegal?
