The convictions in 2018 of Jeremy “Jez” Bedford-Turner and Alison Chabloz for simply saying things our politically correct elite do not want to hear set a new benchmark for the imposition on England of the totalitarian creed which is political correctness. It is a totalitarian creed because (1) it touches on all aspects of life through the application of the non-discrimination or equality principle and (2) its followers insist that there is only one permissible view, the politically correct one.
Mr Bedford-Turner has been found guilty of inciting racial hatred in a speech he made outside of Downing Street and sentenced to 12 months imprisonment, of which half will be served on licence. The main thrust of the speech was his concern about the close relationship between the Metropolitan Police and a charity Shomrim which acts as a private Jewish security force.
Ms Chabloz, a singer and musician, has been convicted of three offences relating to the use of a public electronic service. These arise from three songs she had written which were placed on social media and deemed to be grossly insulting to Jews.
Ms Chabloz was sentenced to 20 weeks imprisonment suspended for two years, given 180 hours of community service plus a fine, victim’s surcharge and costs. She is also banned from using social media for a year. Moreover, the conviction will continue to hinder her both socially and professionally after the two years are spent because it will make it difficult or impossible for her to enter countries, especially places such as the USA and Canada.
