Radio 4 comedienne Shappi Khorsandi has risen further in my estimation for refusing to sing to her own choir. Responding to a tweet from The Stage reporting that "Equity’s minority ethnic members committee has called on fellow actors to “unequivocally denounce” Laurence Fox for comments he made during an appearance on BBC1's Question Time", Shappi wrote:
Blimey. Laurence Fox doesn’t need me to stick up for him, I’m sticking up for compassion though, which should NOT be reserved just for people you agree with. The man sees the world differently to you and said so on TV...but we must actually try to RUIN him for this? To what end??
