My post yesterday about the other Ministry of Truth has provoked a response from the original Ministry of Truth. Pleasingly, it would appear that Unity and myself broadly agree both on this documentary in particular and the BBC’s Why Democracy? season in general.
Meanwhile, it appears that Michael Howard has withdrawn his consent to appear in the film. The First Post (which appears to have turned into a Metro-style gossip and boobs scandal rag since I last looked at it) has the details, along with this disgraceful article which sums up exactly what is wrong with this dreadful proposed bill.
Two points which emerge from this First Post article. Firstly, it emerges that the documentary makers have found a sponsor for the Bill, so Unity’s description of it being a fake bill is sadly mistaken. Secondly, one of the people they did find to support it was Neil Hamilton, and individual whose dishonesty has been demonstrated time and again, at least once in court. What does that tell you?
