MP ENTERS BNP ROW

Local MP Nigel Waterson has intervened in the row about a candidates debate being cancelled by the Unite union due to the involvement of the BNP candidate.  The Eastbourne & Willingdon MP - who is up for re-election – issued the following statement:

“I naturally abhor the BNP as an avowedly racist party.  But in a true democracy, I do not think we can pick and choose whom we debate with.  I am personally willing to debate with any and all candidates who represent legally constituted parties.  I trust other candidates will take the same view.”

“The place to defeat the BNP is in open debate, not by cancelling debates.”
