Al Murray on the sensitivity of conservatives
"You're meant to be tough guys, right?"
There is a pervasive idea in society right now that people on the left are overtly sensitive, something which has seen them labelled 'snowflakes' by people on the right. But is this an accurate portrayal of the landscape?
Comedian Al Murray doesn't think so. At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019, Murray told JOE that for all of their talk, it is conservatives that are just as bad at taking a joke as those on the left.
