Scotland leads way to curbing UK free speech!

It looks like Nicola Sturgeon’s assault on free expression could well filter through to the rest of the UK, given time.

Ever since these new Scottish laws were proposed to address what is termed as ‘hate-crime’, I’ve been wondering how that could possibly operate only inside Scotland within the concept of the UK.

And I put it down to the SNP just doing anything to be different to the rest of the UK in its quest for separation.

And when I saw the extremely reasonable objections to it being made by very learned legal eagles, I did think it would end up in the legislative dust-bin.

But, no – it is pressing ahead – and what’s more I get the uncomfortable feeling it’s coming the way of the rest of the UK very soon.

I mean, how in one country can the same sentence potentially land you with a journalist contract in one area of the UK, but in the clink for hate crime in another?

It just doesn’t make sense to me.

  1. WHENHEN  A  GOV   SHUTS  DOWN   FREE  SPEACH  THEY  ARE   TRAITORS  OF  DEMOCRACY  AND  UPT  TO  AN  EVIL  SINISTER  AGENDA   NOT TO  BEW  TRUSTED????   PURE  EVIL

  2. Well if I were to say the SNP can go fuk itself would that be offensive not to me it wouldn't and they can say. That to me and I would just laugh at them sticks and stones and all that

  3. The real questions are can we still insult Gingers and also how will they cope with the Internet? Will something released on a foreign ISP be liable as with the uSA, Still the law cuts both ways, what is offensive to the right would also be covered, Tell me mr Taylor where does Marx state he was against free speech. In fact it was the opposite. "To the contrary, censorship haunts Marx’s entire life. His earliest publications dissect and heartily mock it." In emancipating words from rights, Marx never compromises or dilutes free speech, but rather assigns to it a stronger, more foundational role than even liberalism allows.

    i do wish people would read Marx instead of what they think he says.

  4. Will it now be a hate crime to quote the classic quote by Titania McGrath ?
    'Say what you like about ISIS, but at least you cant accuse them of Islamaphobia '
    '

  5. The uk does not have a single legal system. Scotland's legal system is very different from the uk legal system.

    The drink-drive law is different than the law in England

  6. Basically only have snowflake talk or find yourself in trouble for telling it, our it is . Because telling the truth is now classed as hate speech . Well my opinion is go ( F )YOURSELF .

  7. To Censorship;
    Hate Everyone and Everything – the expression of unbiased misanthropy towards the human race, living and dead, is equally as much of a right as expressions of 'unity', 'love' and 'respect'. Nothing is superior, all is a cancer floating on a rock in a spacial void of Nothingness.
    I wish strength and endurance to the next natural competitor of this miserable species, as Corona has so far fought feebly.
    Sincerelessly Yours;
    A Free-Thinking Misanthropist

  8. This is what happens when the Scots let the "Religion of Peace" into the so called Scottish Parliament. It will be nice to see the poisoned Dwarf Nicola Sturgeon in her little Black Burqa.

  9. What a drastic measure to take just because Wee Nichola Sturgeon can't stand being called "Wee Nichola Kranky." Throw her out of power now while you can Scotland or Wee Nichola Kranky and her Isis Justice Minister Humza Josef will get ye!

  10. Stuck for suitable words , Orwellian but it's right with us , either as I expect these Lefty politicians don't even understand what they are doing or they are far more Marxist than we think and they really are intent on recreating the Soviet nightmare . Surely these people really have no idea about the more than 100 million deaths the Communists caused in the 20th century and what life was like for the citizens . Surely ?
