I abhor their views but we cannot ban them
It turns my stomach to think of racist police, soldiers and prison officers discriminating against people (why only these professions have bans when others do not?). If they compromise their jobs they should lose their jobs. BUT it is possible to be racist and not to be prejudiced to carry out a job in a reasonable manner - it is possible. And for that reason we should not ostracise BNP members - they are idiots but they have to be allowed to live their lives - it is a simple matter of freedom of speech - end of.
