Anti-"Woke" MPs are Real Cancel Culture

Parliament

07/03/2022

The UK government has been accused of rank hypocrisy when it complains about “cancel culture” being practiced by supposedly woke groups in society. Pacifist newspaper Peace News notes that at a rally in London against the proposed new Police and Crime Bill, Shami Chakrabarti, the Labour peer and former director of the National Council for Liberties, said  that the anti-protest provisions ‘represent the greatest attack on peaceful dissent in living memory’. She accused the government of hypocrisy, saying it ‘bangs on about free speech and whinges about cancel culture’ while clamping down on rights in the UK. Chakrabarti said: ‘You know what? The ultimate cancel culture… comes with a police baton and a prison sentence for nonviolent dissent.’
