A Premature Anti-Multiculturalist
Share

This story, about an early martyr to political correctness, is worth reading.  A good man had his life wrecked because he spoke the truth... 20 years too soon.

Will Mr. Honeyford receive an official apology from any of those who persecuted him?  Ha ha ha ha ha!

I thought at the time that he sounded like a good man, the sort of headmaster we could ill afford to lose.

No apology, of course - when did the Left ever admit they were wrong - but it may be some comfort to him to be vindicated. His story is now being told and his ideas becoming more mainstream.

I think Theodore Dalrymple wrote about this case a few years ago, when multiculturalism was still fashionable. Melanie Phillips has also written about him from time to time.
