This Site is as guilty of it as anywhere else: Censorship of profane language to prevent it causing offence.

I do it because I want Vox Political articles and the comments they invite to be seen by as many people as possible, and I don’t want them to be put off by a deluge of dirty words. After watching this week’s Jonathan Pie clip, I still think I’m right to do so.

But that applies to a forum for political debate. I’m not trying to alter To Kill a Mockingbird, for example, or to tear down a statue because it portrays some imperialistic git. Just create a statue to someone progressive and put it up next to them – to demonstrate how far we’ve come.

The thought that people are becoming Conservatives – in order to voice protest against censorship – offends my sense of fair play.

It should offend yours too.

This is a clever warning to some people on the Left, to get their act together and concentrate on fighting enemies that matter:
