Another victory for Islam in the UK

Founding editor of award-winning paper sacked in freedom of speech row

In a plot line worthy of Scoop, Evelyn Waugh’s satire on journalism, the founding editor of an award-winning Highland paper has been sacked over his defence of freedom of speech.

Brian Wilson, the former Labour MP, has written for the West Highland Free Press for 38 of its 43 years, since founding it with four others in 1972.

The only gap in contributions came when he was a minister in Tony Blair’s government.

He was dismissed for using his weekly column to defend his friend and fellow columnist, the Free Church of Scotland theologian Prof Donald Macleod, after he wrote about the spread of Islam in the UK.

    The Ministry of Truth stikes again and another victim falls. Orwell got it right.

    • Yes he did.

      Yeah, but he wrote it as a warning, NOT as a user’s manual

    Scotland is now effectively a one-party socialist state.

    • All the smart Scots left I see.

        Don’t underestimate Sturgeon. She’s so sharp she may cut herself.

    The speculation is that the SNP (Scottish Nazi Party) is behind the sacking.

    Shitty moves like this are no longer surprising. Politicians are determined to shoe-horn the ROP down our throats.
