Headline

Scruton sacked as chair of beauty watchdog over ‘unacceptable comments’

Comment

Agree with McKenzie and Atticus. So what if he said something that does not accord with the views of the government wonks. Can he do the job? No problem then. Remember those things called debates? Rather than silencing people who don't agree with you, the idea is to use your own reasoned arguments to put your point of view. If you do not have any reasoned arguments, then you can resort to the bullying tactic (backed by some draconian and dangerous law made by a minority) of sacking people; putting them in prison; closing newspapers or creating ridiculous 'safe spaces' and warnings of 'trigger points'. Then create a nasty Twitter storm to bring the wrath of the pitchfork waving mob right up to their front door. I'm expecting the thought police to hammer on my door at about 4.30 tomorrow morning.
