SIR- The Coutts Bank scandal cancelling Farage’s account is the ultimate example of political correctness gone mad, which is a serious problem. And I’ve never really understood why they think Farage is racist.

The EU, which he opposes, has mostly Caucasian inhabitants. The EU Parliament is nearly all white, less diverse than the UK government. It also consists of nations that don’t allow the burka, and black footballers face much more racial abuse than here.

Why don’t Coutts and other EU supporters just go and live there? In many ways, they caused Brexit.

All ideologies have their extremes, we should oppose extremism.
