Maajid Nawaz gives his impassioned reaction to a police investigation into Danny Baker’s “racist” tweet, saying that if violent racism and stupid tweets are equated, we will diminish overall the impact of racism.
The radio presenter was sacked by the BBC for the tweet, which he admitted was a “huge mistake”.
Speaking on his LBC show, Maajid said: “This is liberal Britain, where you have the right to be an idiot and a plonker. You have the absolute right to say things that are absolutely stupid and for everybody else to roast you for them. You don’t go to jail for saying silly things.”
