Panorama: Neofascism In The Ukraine.

This evening’s BBC Panorama programme investigated neofascism and football in the Ukraine and it was horrific to watch.

The blurb states:

“With just days to go before the kick-off of the Euro 2012 championships, Panorama reveals shocking new evidence of racist violence and anti-semitism at the heart of Polish and Ukrainian football and asks whether tournament organiser UEFA should have chosen both nations to host the prestigious event.

Reporter Chris Rogers witnesses a group of Asian fans being attacked on the terraces of a Ukrainian premier league match and hears anti-Semitic chanting at games in Poland. And with exclusive access to a far right group in Ukraine which recruits and trains football hooligans to attack foreigners, Panorama asks: how safe will travelling football teams and their supporters be at this summer’s European festival of football? “

It is available on the BBC Iplayer and will be rebroadcast on Thu 31 May 2012, 04:30 – BBC News Channel, Fri 1 Jun 2012, 01:35 – BBC One and Sun 3 Jun 2012, 20:30 – BBC News Channel.

The BNP, Fraud And Panorama.

The British National Party are a bunch of misfits, hard core racists and assorted neo-Nazi types.

Not only that, they are chronically incompetent. The BNP can’t even manage to comply with British electoral laws.

Earlier the BBC’s Panorama exposed the fraud, stupidity and corrosive racism at the heart of the BNP.

The program can be viewed via the BBC’s iplayer, BNP: The Fraud Exposed.

For those unable to access the Beeb iplayer I am sure a copy will be available somewhere across the web, shortly.

The Beeb covered the BNP before, 2004, and in the Secret Agent which can be found on YouTube.
