Laurence Fox has been involved in a fiery clash with a GB News guest over Jeremy Clarkson’s column on Meghan Markle.

The column, published by The Sun, sparked mass controversy after the broadcaster said he prefers Rose West to the Duchess of Sussex, among other things.

In a debate over whether the ex-Top Gear presenter had a right to say what he did between Dr Tessa Dunlop and GB News presenter Laurence Fox, chaos ensued.

Fox, sitting in for Farage, argued: “I don’t think it’s illegal to hate people.”

Dr Dunlop argued: “What happens otherwise is big bears like you and Jeremy Clarkson, Nigel Farage and Dan Wootton, get little me’s on, and you bear-bait us for clicks.

“Jeremy Clarkson will be emboldened by this.”

Fox argued: “I’m condemning what he said, but I defend his right to free speech.”

Dr Dunlop said in response: “You want paedophiles, racists all to have free speech?

“You’ve come out on Twitter saying “this is where free speech is at the moment” but I’m saying that’s not good enough.

“It emboldens misogynists, The Sun probably hasn’t sold so many copies since the 1990s, and that’s not acceptable so we should change the law.”
