Cancel Culture does exist, but not for the people who signed this letter. It’s all about power and how the structure of our society and media allows it to be disproportionately leveraged.
None of the people who signed this letter would face serious consequences for being called out on social media - in fact, many of them haven’t done so for things that they should. It’s the members of the public, the whistleblowers, the people who challenge power, the people who make a mistake, that are truly at the mercy of cancel culture, usually wielded by those in power in the media, especially in the press.
Just look at how the likes of Guido seek to destroy anyone who questions this government, which the press and the BBC then launder into the mainstream. Hassling employers into sacking staff, harassing people who manage to buttonhole ministers on camera. We have an administration who have outsourced their authoritarianism, making people afraid of raising dissent. That is what people should be up in arms about.
