Writers’ Guild revives Anti-Censorship committee
The combined outrages of the JS:TO furore, the Behzti cancellation and the upcoming Incitement to Religious Hatred Bill have provoked The Writers’ Guild to revive its Anti-Censorship committee.
Chairman Graham Lester-George explains:
The Writers’ Guild started an Anti-Censorship Committee in the 1960s but when politicians stopped setting themselves up as our moral guardians, it was deemed surperfluous and wound up. It is to our great regret that we find ourselves compelled to reopen it.
