Maajid: The Left Is No Longer Liberal
Maajid Nawaz worries that the British left is no longer liberal.
Talking on his LBC show he explained the rise of the ‘control left’ who have left the values of liberalism behind.
"Today's active, organised left is no longer liberal. A liberal will always prioritise free speech over offence.
"This behaviour, censorship on the organised left, post factual behaviour, violence being seen as an option and prioritising group identity over individual rights. It isn't liberal."
He said that this group has now become the 'control left' who want to infringe peoples civil liberties.
"They want to control our lives, control what we think, control how we even feel."
