If I go to press with the interview there's every chance they could be charged with incitement or even terrorism, especially given the *four-year* sentence handed down recently for a facebook post. I'm really not sure I want that on my conscience.
On the other hand it's a major news story, they were adamant about their message and said they were willing to go to jail for it. If I sit on it I'll be dismissing their views, and worse still I could quite rightly stand accused of suppressing a damaging story just because the subject shared my political affiliations (you can bet your arse I wouldn't do the same if it was some punk from the BNP).
so yeah friends, what should i do
could you ask them to not use their names?
i think it's a bit late for that tbh, they're a national news story
Counsel them to arm themselves to resist arrest.
publish the story, but change every name to yours, and then arm yourself to resist arrest.
publish the story, but do it because you want to advance your career and not because it'll help disseminate their views or whatever they think it'll do
thats what he was going to do anyways
hmm this webpage has a dancing face
