There are certain questions we hear time and time again across the media and in our society today – has political correctness gone too far? Are people too easily offended? Are we progressing or regressing as a society from this climate of political correctness? Former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission Trevor Philips has his own take on these matters, and in this programme, he argues that liberalism’s insistence on protecting people from offence has backfired. He argues that liberalism and a fear of offending minorities are stifling legitimate debate and that they inspired Brexit as well as the rise of populist leaders like Farage and Trump.
