    Freedom of speech and expression are under attack in this country, look what happened the other week, that bloke wearing a t-shirt? 8 months (will serve 4) , people getting banged up for “offensive” words.

    Yet apart from twitter joke trail (one case where common sense won) we have gone back to old ways of someone being “offended” followed by a twitter mob and then an arrest and charge.

    Where are the politicians defending our freedoms? They are restricting them instead all for “safety” .

    “I got chucked off my Drink Driving Rehabilitation Course ‘cos I gave the wrong answer to an easy question.”

    “What was the question?”

    “They asked what the difference was between a stag and a swan.”

    “That’s a pretty easy question …”

    “Yeah, I told them The Stag shuts at 11 but The Swan’s got a licence until 1 a.m.”

    Socialism = Starvation says:

    There is no freedom of speech in the UK, there has not been ever any legal basis for claiming freedom of speech as a right except for proceedings in Parliament, it is simply the fact that it hasn’t been abolished entirely yet and that people still have this wistful idea that it would be a good thing to have freedom.

    All freedom has to be fought for, won, and preserved with eternal vigilance.

    Can somebody explain to me who was supposed to be insulted when the guy called the policeman’s horse ‘gay’? The pro-‘gay’ lobby maintains that being ‘gay’ is both natural and common in the animal kingdom, so why would they be ‘insulted’? In fact, only a homophobe would find being called ‘gay’ an insult … but i thought that being homophobic wasn’t something the law was intended to protect from insult. I’m confused …

    I did note though that even in that speech Rowan Atkinson couldn’t actually mention the commonest/most prominent claimers of victimhood who paradoxically seem to think that they are free to insult everyone else, especially the majority in this country.

    The only way to protect free speech is a written constitution. I’ve always been against it believing we didn’t need one because our rights are entrenched in our great history.

    However, we now have garbage politicians more interested in ripping us off and shutting down anyone who dares to oppose them, the MSM can no longer be trusted and our hopeless police make the Gestapo look like children.

    I used to laugh at the yanks, but now I fear Europe is having the blood of freedom drained from it by a corrupt useless political elite.

    There is a good saying “the road to hell is paved with good intenshions”. MP’s need to keep this in mind when they legislate and police and judges should keep it in mind when they arrest, charge and prosecute people. Lets not forget people were afraid to speak out against jimmy savel because they did not want to offend him or damage his charity work. A good intenshion but what did it cost those that where abbused

    I see MPs are tweeting to GF and making their excuses.
    Fools! What defence does not sound like “it was all within the rules’ ?
    Why have your free ipad, self justifying, tweets posted on these pages?

    I learned long ago to say and do nothing. Don’t turn up to vote unless its against some major socialist lunacy or Lib Dem fluff-puff.

    By all means take on as many overpaid Quangos and select committees as you like. Just don’t do anything with them. Don’t report or pass any legislation or make anything but the most banal recommendations.
    The public are much more tolerant if you don’t believe your own hype about how wonderful and righteous you are and just keep out of the public’s bloody way.

    They only ever care about how much cash you stuff in your socks if you get all moral and start lecturing them about ‘fairness’, ‘sacrifice’,’community’ ‘prudence’ or any kind of one nation -big society bollocks.

    Just say ‘sorry’. or better yet say nothing at all. Let Sally Bercow, Rio Ferdinand or Alan Sugar run their gums off online. Its not for us.

    He could have called the policeman a ‘pleb’. Being a ‘pleb’ is both natural and common in the animal kingdom ,so why would they be ‘insulted’? Infact, only someone obsessed with class would find being called a ‘pleb’ insulting.

    Agree completely. It was a well constructed and proportionate speech. It did not rely too much upon humour but contained a substantive argument which should surely be unassailable. That in practice it is not is an indictment of our political process. Our parents and grand parents did not go to war for our country’s freedom simply in order to allow us to be overtaken by this ludicrous state of affairs.

    John Roberts, CJ, US Supreme Court says:

    Written Constitutions are only as good as the judges interpreting them. Half of the time we Supremos are making it up as we go along, anyhow. I declared the Obamacare individual mandate un-Constitutional based on the Interstate Commerce clause but refused to block its implementation, saying as long as you call it a tax (which point was only barely mentioned as a “f’rinstance” when the case was argued to us), it’s kosher. I tried to split the diff, and now everyone wants to split my skull. But it’s always nice to have something to point to, anyway, whether it really means anything or not.

    This problem is so constricting that it became a main reason for my emigration. I now comment from where I happen to be without concern about such laws. I also comment in other places.

    Though it is not necessary for me to take care of this for my sake, I make every effort not to post something that is libellous out of courtesy to my hosts who provide the forum. I still feel responsible for my utterances and if proven wrong would withdraw and apologise.

    Isn’t this the type of self-censorship that everyone should be happy with? The long established English concept found in the law of Equity, that of reasonableness applies.

    The problem of course with savile is that he was employed by the beeb therefore paid by us the license payer.

    The real story is as you say not the Newsnight cover up , but the kiddie fiddling that went on and may still do.

    One of the women who was interviewed by Newsnight was on ITV and reckons as soon as she told them Savile did fiddling at the BBC they dropped the story.

    The establishment will try to bury this story

    Imagine a senario where Police Chiefs are inreceipt of rumours and it is rumoured that some actually possess evidence that a Police officer working with children is abusing them. What do you think would happen if it came to light that they chose to ignore these allegations and infact promoted him to a position where he had even more access to children ?

    Pretty serious state of affairs Im sure you would agree.

    I don’t know all the details of the case and you certainly can not predict the exact moment or epicentre of an earthquake but you can often warn of the high possibility of an earthquake happening in a locality with the monitoring gear that now exists.

    The BBC said it found no evidence of cover up by Newsnight. That is not the same as saying ‘it found no cover up by the BBC’.

    Newsnight was attempting to expose the beeb funded savile and his abuse of children through kids programmes that BBC kept giving him even though they knew he was abusing children.

    It was not Newsnight who attempted to cover up the scandal it was the higher echelon’s of Sinister Uncle Beeb who had nurtured jimmy and his pals and employees of the beeb who had formed a p@aedophile ring that functioned for more than 40 years at our expense!!

    From my experience the Police and the Judiciary refuse to listen. Had everything recorded and the a senior Police inspector resorted to going on the offensive so that they did not have to record the complaint or even listen to the evidence.

    Judge refused to listen, repeatedly interrupting the answers I tried to give, and even answering his own question. All on the court transcript, but no one will care. Now they want money for justice, even when the injustice is the justice system.

    As with the other UK institutions it is impossible to be in the wrong if you are paid by taxes. That is the unwritten law of the country. (e.g. BBC) Each UK institution is given what looks like minimal powers that do not require the courts. They use them as a way to silence criticism. So it could be your pay you lose. It could be a freedom you lose. It could be a service. Even if there is no lawful power for their retribution, it does not stop them threatening. If you stand up to them they “create” accusations and threaten court action.

    These laws are just there so that we can be threatened and silenced. They were never meant for use between the public. They were meant to protect the institutions and their corrupt officials from criticism. A nice open ended law to be used at their discretion. Just a few convictions in the press and the threat of action is all they need.

    Individuals should be free, but the state should be gagged.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
