The truth is no defence
Nick Griffin, the leader of the BNP and Mark Collett are currently being retried for inciting racial hatred. In light of the behaviour of muslims around the globe, albeit in some circumstances in a legitimate response to western imperialist aggression, it is ludicrous to be trying Nick Griffin for calling Islam 'a wicked and vicious faith'. Even the fact that this statement could be a simple acknowledgement of the truth is no defence! Apparently, by law, if the the truth is likely to incite hatred, then it is illegal to state it! What makes the trial all the more laughable is that Griffin was saying this in a private speech to his supporters, and telling them to respond throught the ballot box.

Interview with Nick
A very positive article by the Times online regarding the first day of the trial
