Toby Young, General Secretary of the Free Speech Union, said: “The BBC has been been taken over by the ‘woke’ cult. Its managers are like 17th Century Witchfinder Generals, constantly on the look out for heretics. Any programmes that depart from their narrow ideological dogma are immediately slapped with a moral health warning. Someone needs to remind them that Britain is the birthplace of Parliamentary democracy and the licence-payers who pay their wages believe in free speech.”
