The resolution? "What you call political correctness, I call progress…"
On May 18th, the redoubtable Stephen Fry (self-admitted soft leftie) and I debated the duo of academic, author and radio host Michael Eric Dyson (https://bit.ly/2IzKSZz) and blogger/author Michelle Goldberg (https://bit.ly/2wVOTBZ).

64% of the audience prior to the debate disagreed with the idea that political correctness was a force for good, while 36% disagreed (and 87% said they were willing to change their mind). By the end of the evening, 70% disagreed, while 30% agreed.
