Quote of the day 8th August 2021

"Seem to tweet this same thing every week now. But if a right wing paper attacked a left-wing black or Asian female politician as “A Witch” there’d be demands to shut the paper down."

(Dan Hodges on Twitter)

Dan is right. If a right-wing paper or broadcaster were to write or speak about, say Diane Abbot or Dawn Butler the way left-wingers often write or speak about, say Priti Patel or Kemi Badenoch, those left-wingers themselves would be among the first to complain - and the complaints would not just be empty rhetoric either. There would be active attempts, some of which would be successful, to to bully companies into switching advertising revenue away from a paper or broadcaster which did any such thing.
