Celebs demand free speech, so the rest of you can ‘shut yer face’

One hundred or so leading writers have signed an open letter in support of the concept of free speech, their own free speech - specifically a book they must promote or something racist, they plan to say.Said one author: ‘I was on Twitter and some dreadful pleb, disagreed with me. Imagine that? The temerity! Obviously, I got my publicist to put out a three-page advert in The Sunday Times, explaining in detail how my free speech was being oppressed.’

Likewise, it does seem odd to be complaining about a cancel culture, while merrily cancelling everyone else. Asked if she wanted to hear what ordinary people thought, the author replied: ‘Why would I want to do that?’
