Political Correctness In Britain? This Orwellian Madness Has Reached New Levels Of Absurdity

• by Martin Jay

This great democracy, which many look up to as a beacon in the world, has advanced so far down the politically correct road, based on the erroneous assumption that free speech itself should come with caveats which protect those which might be 'affected' by it, that white males are losing the right and even the ability to debate.

I generally want to throw something at my 20 year old Samsung plasma (which is about 15cm in width) the moment I hear after a TV show on the BBC the gentle voice which asks "have you been affected by this program?".

The decline in politics as a subject of common interest, the advancement of 'comment' on social media which overshadows raw news reporting and the incomprehensible guilt complex about Britain's colonial history all combine to feed, if not sustain, a new mantra incubated in Britain's debating forums: white people should keep quiet and listen to the thumb-sucking liberals and their two-faced moral tutelage, based on simply them being the victim class.

This new space is accommodated by anyone who feels that not being white, male and employed is in itself is a handicap to function in society and therefore, by definition, is entitled to an artificial-assisted narrative which should be given greater prominence – regardless of how ill-informed, biased, idiotic it may be, like only allowing alcoholics an opinion on drinking.
