Shutting down debate on Sharia Law - Paul Mason admits it

Thanks to GCooper in the comments... and I quote:

Newsnight in truth shock drama!

Paul Mason on Newsnight actually admitted this evening that 'the political classes' had closed ranks over the Archbishop's Sharia comments to shut down debate.

He also revealed the unprecedented waves of public disquiet as expressed on websites and via other forms of feedback received by the BBC and MSM outlets.

And what is the reaction of our lords and masters? Why, it's to stop us talking about it and demanding action.

Isn't "shutting down debate" a sign of dictatorship?

I heard 'Feedback' say the speed and volume of reaction against the archbishop were inrecedented.
