Current Controversy

Readers will find that the Orwell Society has commented on current political controversies using its Facebook page. This is regularly updated, using quotations from the work of George Orwell relevant to events now.

We do not speculate on what Orwell would say or do today, but we can identify what Orwell did or said in similar circumstances.

Members of the Orwell Society committee have appeared on radio and TV speaking on this subject, and there are more interviews in print and online.

Two of our committee, Quentin Kopp and Leslie Hurst, were interviewed on the BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine show on January 25th. It is available online until February 24th. The interview begins at 33 minutes.
