John Cleese faces backlash after declaring London is not an “English city anymore”




Self-appointed political correctness police and social justice warriors on twitter have launched a tirade of hateful comments at John Cleese after the legendary actor and comedian reiterated his comments from several years ago that London of not being an “English city anymore”.

The 79-year-old Monty Python creator and star made the comments on Twitter after announcing his intention to move to o the Caribbean island of Nevis.

Cleese tweeted to his 5.9 million followers

“Some years ago I opined that London was not really an English city any more. Since then, virtually all my friends from abroad have confirmed my observation
So there must be some truth in it…
I note also that London was the UK city that voted most strongly to remain in the EU.”

This factual comment triggered countless anti-free speech activists online and an outpouring of hatred and vitriol spewed forth online from the ironically dubbed “tolerant left”

However, some pointed out that Cleese was correct in his assessment as recent censuses have shown that indigenous English people are now a minority in the British capital making up around 45% of the population.

Some leftists and open border advocates have applauded this but when asked if they would also applaud ethnic Chinese people becoming a minority in Beijing or similar demographic shift taking place in Nigeria, they become uncharacteristically silent.

This is not the first time the keyboard warriors of the left have gone on the offensive against the ground-breaking comedian after he previously announced he intended to vote for Brexit on Twitter.
