The capture of Liberalism

The newspaper I have delivered to my front door every day, the strongly right-wing Daily Telegraph — mainly for its crossword and its superb business supplement — has, however, given about one third of its news and opinion space to those who want to Remain in the EU.

The Guardian, the strongly left-wing newspaper gives little space to news about the Leave lobby and no space at all in its opinion articles.

This demonstrates just how completely the courageous Liberalism of 150 years ago has been captured and subverted by trade unions and academic romantics and sociologists in the meantime — when also The Manchester Guardian became Londonised as The Guardian — leading to the quite nasty and intolerant ‘political corrcctness’ of modern times.
