The BNP Protest in Pictures

Yesterday I went along to the protests against Nick Griffin and the British National Party’s appearance on Question Time. I was armed with a swish camera and got involved with the professional photojournalists. You know, the sort that push you over if you are stealing their ‘shots’.
I managed to get involved in a few scrums and got some quite good photos for a first timer. So, in addition to my blog post on the protests, I thought i’d put up some of the photos to tell the story of the protests. Its mainly for people who can’t read, or are too lazy to read. Feel free to comment.
