The participants for this Thursday's Question Time, the first time the BNP's Nick Griffin will appear

For the first time in the programme’s history BNP leader Nick Griffin will appear on the BBC’s flagship political programme, Question Time on Thursday night.

He will appear alongside playwright Bonnie Greer, Justice Secretary Jack Straw, Lib Dem home affairs spokesman, Chris Huhne and Conservative peer Baroness Sayeeda Warsi.

The JC’s editor Stephen Pollard and Political Editor Martin Bright will be providing expert commentary and analysis, as it happens, on the JC.com by liveblogging Mr Griffin’s appearances on the programme.

Readers will have the chance to interact with the editors and give their views on the programme, as it happens, minute-by-minute.

The liveblog will be broadcast on the JC.com News page, to begin at 10pm on Thursday. Question Time commences at 10.35pm.
