His freedom of speech was curtailed because certain people did not like the prospect of the truths he was about to say so they shut him down with words of homophobic and racist.

People think the UK has freedom of speech but actually it doesn't.
Absolutely.
Despite the fact that Nigel never managed to become an MP, I have no doubt that he had, and still has, a great deal of public support.
His problem was that he was a victim of the electoral system. To clarify, a completely new political party is not going to get elected to government.

Exactly ... he got it in the neck, or they got it in the neck, because they're professional footballers paid thousands of pounds for kicking a ball and they cocked up and couldn't get a piddly ball in the back of a net.
Bad news for all those fans. The OTT hype about the match didn't help either with Boris muttering on about an extra Bank Holiday.

To be honest, I'm getting fed up of seeing black people everywhere this year. Reading the news, cluttering up TV adverts ...moaning about BLM or racism or how they don't win awards.
What percentage of the population are they supposed to be?

Re: Racism

So much mutual back patting going on in recognition of each other's spouting of over simplistic clap trap.

Very true.
My hope is that the 'woke brigade', being largely comprised of young people, may soon become of less prevalence as they grow up and develop a greater level of common sense.

Of course, my theory falls down on the grounds that as young people grow up, more young people take their place!

You make an excellent point.

It has been claimed, and supported with evidence, that black people are represented in the media in numbers greatly in excess of their actual numerical proportion in the population.

Not just in Coronation Street either!

In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if many black people find this rather patronising rather than supportive. They're not stupid; they know what's going on!
