After BBC News presenter Naga Munchetty apologised for liking a Tweet about the government’s proclivity for flags in the background of ministerial interviews, people who have spent the last few years bemoaning cancel culture are calling for her to be sacked.

Simon Williams, 35, has spent more time than is healthy in the last few years explaining to anyone who’ll listen – and many who won’t – that cancel culture is ruining society, and that it’s important for opinions we don’t agree with to have the right to be aired and heard freely.

However, today, Williams is calling for Naga Munchetty to be fired because she liked a Tweet that lightly mocked something he likes, namely, flag nonces.

He told us, “What’s important to remember is that cancel culture is poisonous, but only when the thing being cancelled is something I agree with.

“I want my opinions – yes, even those ones – to be heard in public and with alarming regularity.  Any steps taken to prevent that from happening is borderline fascism.

“However, when the thing being cancelled is one I don’t like, such as woke BBC newsreaders liking tweets that mock the government’s use of the union flag, then it’s a monumental victory in the war on wokeness.

“If you can’t tell the difference between those two positions then you’re an idiot who probably needs cancelling.”
