Only woke extremism thinks that a definition is an attempt to offend.
Thus not calling a spade a spade.
But I guess that would mean the tories and the BBc are "woke extremists" not being able to handle that Gary Lineker in a tweet described the new Illegal Immigration Bill as aweful and using language reminiscent of 1930's Germany.
Many tories now insist he called them nazis, which he didn't. He just pointed out that the way they worded that bill was reminiscent of how the Germans described minorities and foreigners in the 1930's. Just calling a spade a spade.
And considering that the tories themselves in the preamble to the bill admit that it doesn't meet the basic requirements of the UN resolution on human rights, I think he may have a point.
Anyway, it is nice to see that as he was suspended from hosting the Match Of The Day on BBC, all other commentators, experts and even players have refused to be on it or even be interviewed by the BBC. Instead of the normal 80 minute show, this weekend they just had 20 minutes of clips from games, with no commentary. Enough of this cancelling culture! And the BBC have proven themselves spineless for yielding to the pressure of tory snowflakes. I think the solid backing Lineker has received from the football family and the general public will force them to backtrack though.
