Ex-Labour Liverpool Councillor Calls Cops on Old Holborn

jake

Readers will remember Jake Morrison, the slightly special Labour councillor booted out of the party after his very public theatrics during a spat with Luciana Berger. Morrison is now throwing a hissy fit at Twitter mischief maker and agitator of the city of Liverpool, Old Holborn, calling the police in over a series of tweets taking the mickey out of him. Old Holborn has finally found the ideal forum to spread his message, giving a statement to the Liverpool Echo:

“Naturally, those who don’t share my views or choose to take offence can find ample succour in the simple retort of ‘vile troll’ – water off a duck’s back to me, I’m thick-skinned enough to know that it’s only Twitter. I’m passionate about free speech. There are demented trolls out there, happily breaking the law by targeting individuals and we already have laws to deal with them. Twitter is possibly the greatest tool that free speech has ever possessed and is quite literally capable of bringing down tyrants and despots. Governments are desperate to control it, censor it, silence it – and if a few unwelcome trolls are the price we pay for every voice on the planet being free, it’s a price worth paying. Censoring words is one step away from burning books and we all know where that leads. If you don’t like it, don’t read it – yes, it’s that simple.”

Young Mr Morrison has not always been so keen to silence dissent:

You’d have thought our elected representatives would realise this, but involving the police whenever someone says something mean about you on the internet probably isn’t the best use of their time.
