A Tory MP invited Britain’s critics to ‘move to another country’, so whatever happened to free speech?
‘Move to another country.” So suggested Lia Nici, Tory MP for Great Grimsby, to anyone not “proud to be British, or of our flag or Queen”, in response to the kerfuffle over BBC presenters mocking the size of the union jack in communities secretary Robert Jenrick’s office.
No, Lia Nici, I have no intention of “moving to another country”. Or even, as many used to say to me, and some still do, of “going back to where I came from”. But nor have I any intention of being “proud to be British, or of our flag or Queen” in the simple way you want.
