Watching the watchers
The recent attempt by Muslim bigots to blackmail the Liberal Democrats (see my previous posting) should not blind us to the continuing efforts by militant far-right Christian bigots to poison our politics.
Emboldened by its attack on the BBC last month for screening Jerry Springer - The Opera (see my posting on January 11th), the odious Christian Voice is now blackmailing cancer charities and threatening abortion clinics.
Lib Dem blogger Nick Barlow has already stuck the boot in, so I'll not elaborate further. If you think he's intemperate, you should read this.
In the meantime, I have added a link to MediaWatchWatch to the list of 'watch' sites in the left-hand column. It was set up in January to keep an eye on various bigoted groups that threaten our freedom, such as Christian Voice and Media Watch UK. Keep watching.
