Nick Griffin, the British National Party leader, has made great efforts in recent years to shed his party's image as a collection of violent racists. But yesterday's BBC1 documentary The Secret Agent exposes the true face of the BNP. This is a party whose prospective councillors squirt dog faeces through the letterboxes of Asian takeaways, whose supporters brutally assault ethnic minorities, and whose "reformist" leader incites pathetic gatherings to racial hatred. The truth is that the BNP never cut its ties with vicious racists - it simply pretended to. If anyone was in the slightest doubt, it must now be overwhelmingly clear that this disgusting group has no place in a civilised society.
