However, there is a big political debate happening over here in the United Kingdom that may sound trivial to some but is of something highly important to me.
As with many nations politics is built up around political parties and we vote for which one we support the most in terms of views, legislation and respect etc. In the UK we have smaller political parties and one of them is called The British National Party (BNP). They are a party who are will only allow white people to represent them, they believe in fascism and completely agree with war to sort out 'issues.' Maybe you can see why the British do not want them represented in parliament when they received 0.4% of the vote in the most recent elections. When over half that figure were actual members of the party itself.
In spite of this the debate that has circulated here is that on TV we have a popular and very insightful political show that airs weekly. It appeals to so many generations and is so easy to understand. It is actually what got me interested in voting and taking political stances :)
This week the BNP will be represented on this show for the first time ever since they came together in World War 2. There is outrage and protests because people do not want them on in their living room. It is costing the government out of our own tax money £2000,000 to protect them.
