What on earth was the Guardian doing accepting an advert (placed by the GLA) for a researcher for the BNP?
I have no doubt that Guardian executives will justify their decision to on the grounds of liberty and free speech but it is disappointing nonetheless. Or am I over-reacting? Was their decision based upon principle or profit? I have always thought that the Guardian was keen on promoting good community relations but perhaps it is more concerned with boosting it's profit margins?
The advert has now been taken down - though it was due to stay on the Guardian site until July 18th.
