You’re not allowed to talk about immigration nowadays. Which is why it’s so brave that courageous investigative journalist Rod Liddle has flouted this ban, and risked possible imprisonment without trial, in order to talk about immigration.
You’re not allowed to talk about immigration, except when you talk about immigration, all the time, every couple of columns, dancing a merry line wavering between dog-whistle racism and out-and-out racism. You’re not allowed to talk about immigration except when you use phrases like swarm and invasion. You’re not allowed to talk about immigration except when you call refugees cockroaches and say you’d be happy to see pictures of floating bodies.
No one can talk about immigration anymore, apart from in national newspapers, for money. That’s literally the only place you can talk about immigration nowadays. The bien pensant liberals have banned all discussion of immigration except in the national media, for money, every day. It’s like living in Putin’s Russia or something. Or Syria. It’s literally impossible to talk about immigration, except when you do.
Thank goodness for the brave newspaper columnists, radio hosts, bloggers, pundits and politicians who are fighting against all the odds against the massed ranks of so called soi disant politically correct political correctness. They alone must plough the lone furrow and risk the opprobrium of people who read the Guardian.
These brave men and women are our heroes. Let us salute them. They aren’t allowed to, and yet somehow they do. All the time. Every day. For money.
