In case you haven’t gotten the link, there’s an interview of Roger Scruton over on The Spectator and it is worth a glance. I like his resignation, his attitude, his perseverance.
But things have got better, haven’t they? Hasn’t the discussion at least opened out? We are speaking a couple of days after Trevor Phillips has made another noted intervention, attacking those ‘anti-racists’ who have shut down debate for years. This prompts a classically Scrutonian response: ‘Things have changed now because as always when a battle is lost you can speak freely about it.’
