Feels like even sexism, racism and homophobia is treated as an acceptable point of view by some quarters of the media, including broadcasters, nowadays.
All views, no matter how abhoritant or crazy sounding to you or me, should be given airtime in a free society. When these types of views reach the people, the people generally dismiss the more extreme ones anyway. Denying them their five minutes of fame deepens their belief that they are right and this mainstream 'illegitimacy' gave them underground legitimacy.
Look at how "platforming" Nick Griffin contributed to the downfall of the BNP. Look at the current UKIP came undone when their intolerance was aired after Batten became leader and recruited Tommy Robinson to the cause.
That aside, TV Forum is a distinctly apolitical place and so it should stay, in my opinion.
