Beautifully and evocatively written, Mr James, even if it did leave me hunting for some kind of cushion to discreetly bellow my outrage into. Cultural Marxist ‘diversity’ as championed by that pantomime transvestite Grayson Perry essentially means ‘Everyone must look different but all must think the same’. It’s progressive neospeak for enforced ideological conformity, the mutually exclusive polar opposite of democracy. Surprise, surprise: totalitarian art is rebarbative, nasty, repellent tat.
