My Hero Peter Tatchell goes all Guardian on we mask refuseniks - what happened to free speech & liberty Peter?

The attitude of the Guardian is that if it does not agree with you, you must be an alt-right freak. If it can’t smear you by what you say it smears you by association. It uses the same – utterly flawed – logic that links vegetarians to war crimes via Adolf Hitler. And I am sorry to see my hero Peter Tatchell who has done more to fight for freedom than anyone else in Britain today, disappearing down the same rabbit hole.

There is no excuse for some hoodlum trying to remove Peter’s mask. And some folks on Saturday’s rally, like Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers, do have some crazy views on covid. But most of us who oppose lockdown and mask wearing are just normal folks from left (my Mrs) or right (me) with a range of views on Brexit and other issues. To call all of us out as far-right is simply bonkers.
