Aurelius - you have missed the point completely!
The BNP leader, Nick Griffin, recently re-affirmed his belief that non-whites could not ever be considered British, and would be granted the status of "resident foreigners" while being "encouraged" to leave UK.
The logical conclusion to this would be that such non-Britons could not represent Britain in international events.
Would this be good for British sport?
If you look at the 1936 German Olympic team, you won't find many non-whites or Jews.
EDIT JULIAN: You usually try to retain a shred of dignity as you plough your far-right furrow, but I can't help thinking you have let yourself down slightly.
I am neither Muslim, nor particularly an activist, but that's not important. What I find more concerning is that you choose to casually use the "Muslim" as a term of abuse towards me. That's quite sad.
My 1936 reference was prompted by Aurelius's answer that 'not even Hitler went that far', and indicated that this possibility refers to the selection of a national team, not a wholesale ban on participation from any nation. It was not irrelevant in that context.
Why is it such a massive leap from denying that non-whites can be considered British (which the BNP most definitely do), to refusing to allow them to represent Britain?
Anecdotal evidence (which I know isn't evidence!) about BNP supporters cheering for all-white Denmark in the World Cup, and BNP / Combat 18 / NF supporters abusing black British sportsmen points in this direction.
EDIT AZZO: So the point is, it doesn't matter whether our athletes, or indeed our citizens have brown or white skins. They're all British and we should cheer them all on. Their skin colour is irrelevant to their Britishness.
MORE EDIT JULIAN: So, if I deny that I'm a Muslim that's proof that I am. And I also imagine that if I claimed to be a Muslim, you'd suddenly believe me!
This ridiculous line of logic was done so much better in "Life of Brian"! And before you ask, no, I'm not the Messiah.
Wolfie's assertion that we wouldn't have won many medals with an all white team is silly and wrong, as Azzo shows.
And if you want to understand the avatar, look at the hands, not the face.
Also, I really have no recollection whatsoever of making a "defence of Bungawala's crazed knife attack on a white Briton". Please help me on this one. A link, perhaps?
