"Mainly the immigrants are taking over ones, they're just fueling peoples irrational hatreds and giving support to people like BNP."

Just being true to their pedigree, perhaps:

"Hitler's rise to power created an anti-fascist movement in Britain. This was despite some advantageous publicity from Lord Rothermere, who's Daily Mail headline proclaimed "Hurrah for the Blackshirts" in January 1934."

yeah i understand condolezza isn't saying invade now...but the mere idea of attacking another brutal evil regime when we haven't finished with the one we're currently struggling with is a little arrogant don't you think??

My goodness. I note that the guy interviewed the families of some of the jumpers - no way, would I ever agree to be interviewed if I were one of them!
There's nothing to stop him showing footage of the successful attempts, as legally the dead have no rights ... but surely family members wouldn't want him to! It's not as if they would discourage anyone else.
