Wasn’t Oswald Mosely Knighted? Didn’t many eugenicists (another Scruton belief) write lots of books? Total nonsense. None of these FUD questions actually address Scruton’s unpleasant prejudices. he won’t last a week, and if he is kept on his commission will be boycotted by everyone, as a result will only represent his narrow 1980s prejudices from the style wars, and so will have no impact, a total waste of public money. Just go.
