Paul Weston on BBC Radio 4
In a recent Radio 4 programme entitled "No Extremists Please — We’re British!”, left-wing presenter Trevor Phillips questioned several European politicians of the ‘right’ including British Freedom Chairman Paul Weston. As anticipated, Paul’s contribution to the programme was edited almost out of existence; however, some fragments remain, including these responses:
"I just want the country to be better, to say the things that the Conservative Party is too frightened to say about certain issues. And if we can bring pressure on them and we can force them eventually to admit that, yes, we can say this because this chap is saying it and public opinion is not massively against him, maybe we can say the same things. And that would do me fine.”
"Our alliance with the EDL is certainly not as we’re portrayed, as some street thug movement to go hand-in-hand with the political side of it. It simply isn’t like that. The working class are living in the results of multiculturalism and Islam, and they don’t like it.”
"If you are serious about actually bringing some pressure onto people who are going to disregard our traditions and disregard our religion, then if [... street protest is] all you can do and that’s the only route that you have, then that is how it’s going to happen.”
