Orwell Prize Winner Compares Brexit to Grenfell

Congratulations to Carole Cadwalladr, who this week won the Orwell Prize for the best political writing of the year. Carole celebrated by tweeting a thread which concluded with her comparing Brexit to Grenfell. She even attached a photo of the fire. Imagine the judges’ faces when they see that…

That said, the Orwell journalism prize judges were Brexit-hating columnist Rachel Johnson, the Economist’s David Bell, and the former political editor of Channel 4 News Elinor Goodman. Andrew Adonis is judging the Orwell book prize this year. Former winners include Johann Hari

Quote of the Day

Scruton reflects on Twitter’s vigilantes…

“We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict – or merely seem to conflict – with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes. We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors. This world view might lead to a new and liberated social order; or it might lead to the social and spiritual destruction of our country. How shall we know, if we are too afraid to discuss it?”
