Basic Human Right To Free Speech In UK
Let us push for the British Government whether they be right wing or left, to give the people of The United Kingdom more basic human rights. Starting with "A Basic Right To Free Speech" Let it be said that any politician who opposes more human rights for the people of the nation is not a politician whom you should be voting for, but one you should be voting against. Today on March 20th 2018, an online comedian by the name of Mark Meechan or "CountDankula" has been sentenced by a judge in Glasgow Crown Court after spending two years defending himself, for the crime of telling an "offensive" joke. This comes just days after two journalists and an activist were detained and banned from the UK, why? for the "crime" of planing to speak at Speakers Corner in London, and the "crime" of planning to interview Tommy Robinson, a journalist and activist. One journalist was permanently banned from the UK under the terrorism act simply for planning to talk to someone. This is not a good look for The United Kingdom nor is it a step in the right direction. Comedy is now illegal in the UK, joining the likes of facts, statistics, truth and reality. Those who claim to be victims of everything somehow think they will never be victims of their own push for censorship. To those who are offended by speech, It is a lot easier for you to just stop being offended than it is to ask the Government to intervene.
