AS BNP leader Nick Griffin sniggered and squirmed on Question Time on Thursday, a group of Redbridge schoolchildren were on their way back from Auschwitz.
Griffin had responded to being challenged on his denial of the Holocaust with a giggle as he shifted uncomfortably in his seat.
He had denied some of he quotes he was reported as saying, but couldn't refute this one. Instead he suggested he had changed his mind.
That change of mind, I am sure will have nothing to do with the BNP trying to appeal to the Jewish community as part of their campaign against Muslims.
The students who visited the Nazi death camps in Poland last week were in no doubt of the veracity of the most heinous crimes against humanity in history and undoubtedly will carry the experience with them for the rest of their lives.
Just as survivors like Issy Hahn, from Clayhall, do.

I believe it was the right decision to allow Griffin on the BBC show because some of those who voted for the BNP as a protest vote last time round will surely see the truth behind the facade.
The chance to debate with party members enables people to see through the veneer of respectability they have been polishing over the past few years.
