Bar­bar­ians

Cyprus Today - - OPINION -

LAST week fel­low colum­nist John Hughes Wil­son wrote about “bar­bar­ians at the gates”, equat­ing the fall of the Ro­man Em­pire with what is hap­pen­ing to mod­ern Euro­pean civil­i­sa­tion as a re­sult of mass im­mi­gra­tion. In Bri­tain such truth-telling might have at­tracted the at­ten­tion of the “thought po­lice” busily con­sid­er­ing whether John’s in­sight­ful thoughts con­sti­tuted a “hate crime”. When you can freely write as you will here in the TRNC and not in the UK, it rather proves John’s point, doesn’t it?
