Why is it important?

I think it's vital to always question and critically evaluate what we see and hear and so examining a talk show on LBC with a wide reach, hopefully draws attention to prejudice and inspires others to do the same.

Perspectives

I think this article raises some interesting points about the (re) production of prejudice in public discourse which is highly relevant at a time when prejudice is being spread in far more nuanced ways. A focus on the pervasive influence of Nigel Farage is important as his impact on the public and wider society, via his talk show on LBC, is significant and from my perspective people like him, who appear credible, ought to be challenged when making spurious assertions regarding minority groups.
