‘Cancelled’ Starkey unrepentant as he takes on trans lobby Daily Mail2 Sep 2022 UH- OH, Dr David Starkey is whipping up a storm again — and this time he’s taking on the notoriously prickly trans lobby. The television historian, who was ‘cancelled’ after making racist remarks in 2020, has now publicly questioned the right of transgender women to identify themselves as female. ‘One of the terrible problems of the age that we live in is the refusal to confront the truth,’ declares the Tudors expert. ‘The whole world of so much of the social media, the whole world of critical race theory, and the whole world of transsexuality is a gigantic lie.’ He explains: ‘It’s an act of faith — it’s preposterous the idea that a man can become a woman. ‘These are simple absurdities. ‘And large parts of the population — the young population, those who, one would hope, are more questing, are most disillusioned with fiction — swallow fiction.’ Speaking on LBC’s Iain Dale All Talk podcast, Dr Starkey (pictured) adds: ‘We don’t need a new Jesus Christ; we need a teller of blunt, cruel truth. Well, perhaps that was Jesus. If you read the Bible, the Bible was brutal.’ Dr Starkey, 76, apologised after his incendiary remarks about slavery. He was dropped by his long-standing publisher, HarperCollins, and his literary agency, Rogers Coleridge & White, as well as losing top academic posts after he claimed that slavery did not constitute genocide. Last year, however, he shocked diners in London’s Soho by saying he stood by his original offensive comments. ‘I don’t regret that statement,’ he said at the London Grill Club. ‘I regret how I said it, and the fact that I gave a handle to my enemies, which is a stupid thing to do. ‘I regret stupidity, I don’t regret a moral position.’
