But when I discovered that Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, was to appear on Question Time (Thursday 22nd October 2009 at 10:35 BBC1), I considered writing a thoughtful piece on whether we should give a platform to someone who would deny us that same freedom of speech.
Then I thought “Fuck it” and decided it would be more fun to play a drinking game while watching the programme.
I suggested the idea to people on Twitter and this list has been compiled with the glorious help of @nuttycow, @unslugged, @flukewoman, @piersb, @WGallagher, @davidskynner, @WellTold, @adamfishpoet, @matt_davies and @antonvowl
Drink One Finger If:
Nick Griffin mentions any of the words or phrases:
Somebody in the panel or the audience receives a round of applause for calling him bigoted/foolish/a Nazi tossbag/insert your own amusing but accurate insult here.
Drink Two Fingers If:
Somebody asks why Nick Griffin keeps banging on about Dunkirk when we lost that one.
Nick Griffin is accused of being racist
Nick Griffin accuses that person of being a Stalinist
Drink Three Fingers If:
Nick Griffin moans about how television isn’t as good as it used to be. What happened to ‘The Black & White Minstrel Show’ and ‘Love Thy Neighbour’?
He breaks into a version of ‘I Will Survive’
Down All Drinks If:
He attempts a comedy foreign accent.
Feel free to add your own!
