"When Nick Griffin appeared on Question Time in the UK recently, it probably played into the hands of the Conservatives, allowing them to shift the acceptable part of the Overton Window a notch or two rightwards"

It wasn't just the Conservatives - once everyone had had their fill of righteous point-scoring against Griffin, Jack Straw, the Tory peer and the Lib Dem all went on at great lengths about how *their* party was the "toughest" on immigration. I think Griffin has pretty much admitted that he's never going to get the all-white Britain he wants and that he sees his role as moving the debate rightwards. At the moment, he's succeeding.
