Laurence Fox, Question Time, and the cynical manipulation of language (short episode)
Show Notes

During his Question Time appearance, Laurence Fox, an actor, claimed that Britain is generally 'a tolerant place' (it is). As a result, he was called a 'white privileged male' by a 'professor of race and ethnicity', actors called for him to be banned from acting, unions denounced him as a 'disgrace', there was mass social media outrage...etc etc.

But, he literally didn't say anything bigoted at all. On the whole, Britain is incredibly tolerant, a fact that a vast majority of immigrants to this country agree with.

In this episode Max tries to determine how we've reached this strange point.
