Freedom of speech

We saw the one earlier about the six “far right” people detained and the one killer line in the whole news report:

Six people have been arrested on suspicion of being members of the banned far-right group National Action.

But this one line near the bottom says it all:

“There was no threat to public safety,” a force spokesperson said.

Inevitably, this sort of thing will have to be attempted:

But as we discovered in 2010, it’s like herding cats to get anyone to coordinate. Of course there should be no need for it, of course those above “should” be respecting and enshrining the right to criticise.

And pigs might fly.

    You rather think if the BBC describe National Action as Far right, why are they not also discussng Labour as hard Left, or the comunist party as such? Of course, they think they’re the normal ones. That’s part of the problem. They’re not.

    Thus they want to dictate their own attitudes and rubbish any others. Note the ‘banned’ emphasis, as if all ‘far right’ groups must be banned.

    Common Purpose is terrified of the freedom movement called National Action , my advice to NA is simple change your name to New Conservative Action. What’s in a name, ask Blair.
