David Starkey: ‘Disabled people and ethnic minorities should not act like victims’
The outspoken 70-year-old said it was “very sad” that many groups decided to act like victims instead of “taking control”.
Speaking to the Telegraph, David said: “All forms of liberation – and I speak as gay and I was in all this when it wasn’t fashionable, when you didn’t get your CBE for being a prominent poofter, when there were actual penalties for doing it – all of them depend upon you taking control. About you refusing to be victim.
“And I find it very, very sad the way there is now this perpetual procession of people – group after group – wanting to assume the status of victim. It’s catastrophic.”
