Quote Of The Week

(First in an occasional series)

Bonnie Greer on the controversy surrounding the appearance of the leader of the BNP on Question Time, the BBC TV show.

“The Left has become too smug, too complacent, too trusting in its own insular view of the world. Anyone who does not accept its outlook is too often ridiculed or simply ignored.

“The refusal by too many on the Left to allow air time to what are rightly considered to be disgusting, abhorrent views only allow those views to cloak themselves in a kind of self-righteous martyrdom. They become censored, mysterious, points of campaign and anger. Democracy can never flourish in the dark.”

Bloody Hell! A lefty talking sense!
