This is simply more evidence of the death of free speech in the West. I have often said, all nations (at least in the “West”) need a First Amendment law similar to the US First Amendment to the US Constitution. Without it, laws such as Australia’s 18C and Canada’s 16C will muzzle political disagreement in the name of political correctness. This is the slippery slope we must all be vigilant toward. In the UK, the Tories, who masquerade as “conservatives”, are either too scared or complicit in their behaviour that will ultimately be all our undoing. I cannot emphasize strongly enough how the brilliant George Orwell warned us about — “Big Brother” — in his epic tome, “1984”.
Those of us who are realists see it as it was written — a warning. The Left sees it however – as a playbook.
