What Is Free Speech?
Well, just what is free speech?
It is the right to say something that someone else will find offensive, rude, derogatory, nasty, evil etc, nothing more nothing less. And as with pregnancy, you can't have a little bit. You either have free speech or you don't, and with the jailing of some drunken fool for 56 days for saying bad things about a rather ordinary premier division footballer and using the words "nigger, wog, cunt and twat" we no longer have free speech.
Of course, the reason why the state wants this sort of legislation is not to deal with rather silly and immature young men like Liam Stacey for saying something uncomfortable and wrong but to silence those who say things that are both uncomfortable and right.
Like for example that Tuberculosis is again on the rise in the UK because of immigration from Pakistan and India, or the recent revelations about grooming young girls from the Muslim community.
