William Clouston, leader of the SDP, was looking at a new three-part Radio 4 series earlier called Britain's Fascist Thread.
The one-line summary on the BBC website says, "Camilla Schofield explores the unbroken thread of fascism in Britain."
William then tweeted:
Only the BBC could commission a programme promulgating the 'Britishness of Fascism'.
Lacking a sense of proportion, it's an insult to fellow citizens who at first mocked Fascism, then rejected it and finally fought and died to defeat it.
Fascism has never escaped the fringes in the UK, unlike in most European countries.
We can be immensely proud of that, whatever the BBC says.
