    • I’m glad I saw this and it only served to confirm what I already knew.

      Censorship is a very tricky subject to get our heads around but certainly in this instance I think the people who wanted to ban him from the media altogether are missing the point. Just because *they* don’t agree with his views, the fact of the matter is that sufficient others do – importantly, enough to have procured his Party two places in European Parliament. On that basis he must be given a public platform. To do otherwise is a dangerous precedent to set because it ultimately allows a minority to decide what we will and won’t be given access to.
