The Financial Times on the wrong side of history No 697: French jihadists & #JeSuisprofesseur

I am not sure if journalists at the Financial Times believe in free speech any more. After all, on every major issue in history, the pink paper shows itself not to be on the side of business or even sanity but the mouthpiece of smug elitist North London metropolitan liberals. That is to say on the wrong side of history. Thus, 24 hours after a French teacher was beheaded by an Islamist extremist for daring to practice and teach the virtues of free speech, I bring you an October 2 tweet from the FT’s man in Brussels. It has not aged well and is yet another reason for the dwindling readership of this sad publication to think again about their subscription. 


The rest of us may tweet #JeSuisprofesseur this weekend but smug liberals at the FT will probably still be too busy condemning attempts by President Macron to combat murderous extremists.
