Solidarity! Had this happened to them, there would have been prosecutions! So more kudos to you for rising above it and being a better defendant of free expression than they ever could (especially when their expression is so vile).

This is a great insight by on anti-humanist roots of cancel culture: ‘A lack of belief in the human ability to handle freedoms leads to the disappearing of ‘bad influences’. Scratch under any problem, you will find a bad philosophical idea.

I remember this Stalinist argument: you must never criticise 'our side' for fear of giving succour to the 'enemy'. Out of this demand for loyalty British socialists denied the slaughter and repression in the Eastern bloc, & the corruption of union bosses and Labour Govts. here.

The Pound continues to rise against the Euro, it's now £1.21, but it's still on the CENSORSHIP list. No positive news allowed after BREXIT. Scrap the Licence Fee.

Here are another 5 reasons why the party that used to represent me and the party that I used to support, will be out of power for many, many years and at risk of becoming an irrelevant fringe party in 10 - 15 years!

Dawn Butler claims that babies are born without biological sex. Last year, she said that ‘90% of giraffes are gay’. But her fantastical thinking is not limited to science. She also tried to pretend she was endorsed as MP for Brent South by Barack Obama.

As the topic is back in the news, here’s my piece from last year on why the political ghosts of eugenics may matter more than the genetic:

The problem when science meets politics. We end up on very dodgy terrain. The justification of famine and the endpoint of the death camps sprang from eugenics and racial 'science'. This is why politics needs to be rooted in moral judgement and solidarity not science.
