Douglas Murray has been doing the rounds - publicising his book The Madness of Crowds - Race, Gender and Identity.
Of all the book-publicity material I’ve seen, (with Candace Owens, Julia Hartley-Brewer , etc etc,) this conversation with Peter Whittle in the “So What you’re Saying Is…” series, (New Culture Forum) allows the subject free rein to express and develop his ideas.
Of the Roger Scruton fiasco:
“…….a public square so stupid and deracinated that people who are actually thoughtful and have thought about things can be ‘disappeared’ at the whim of the ignoramus.”
As one commenter says, we get to hear Douglas Murray without too much input from the host.
I’m not too sure about the dirty-protest themed backdrop, (I might discuss backgrounds at a later date) but it’s good.
This Brexit themed video (H/T M.B.) is fun, probably more so for the 52% than the 48%…
Radio 4’s Start the Week this morning alluded to the BBC in a discussion about confirmation bias, echo chambers and ‘non-diversity of thinking.
From within my own bubble, I’m beginning to suspect that the BBC’s popularity is in a downward spiral.
