No platform round-up

Obviously there's a lot of discussion about whether fascists should be allowed a platform like that of the BBC. Will they hang themselves if we give them enough rope, or use that rope to hang us? Does the election of two BNP members to the European Parliament change the game, or is it same shit different day?

As a service to the community I thought I'd round up some of the discussion taking place at the moment. If you've spotted other useful links (obviously I'm not linking to everything) please feel free to link to them in the comments as this is by no means comprehensive;

Reluctantly for Nazi Nick appearing on Question Time;

Fervently against Nazi Nick's appearance;
General riffs on the theme;
A few additions;
Feel free to add more links in the comments although I shall leave my updating of the post there I think lest it become a full time job.
