do u think that law should be changed?
Interesting question.

There are of course no positive rights to freedom of speech in the UK. All rights are residual. In other words, in the UK, you can do or say anything you like so long as it isn't expressly prohibited by law.

That's good and bad. Where free speech is concerned it means that minorities are protected from "hate speech" but, also carries with it the risk that the residual right to free speech can gradually, over time, be too far eroded.

Please, don't strain your drug-addled little mind with such obscure concepts as logic. Nobody will ever 'av me for it', because I do not associate with the type of troglodyte who 'av's people. Quite simply, this always was a forum for the intellectual, and, only recently, has this been changed to encourage people like you. d is foolish to act this way, it will backfire in the end.

Free speech is only eroded for the good of society, to become eroded to far would also be adverse to society. It's a case of striking a balance between the two.
I believe that you have the right to say what you like, but not the right to say it where you like.

Clearly, someone with enough brain cells to be classed as a normal human being has decided to voice his opinion - once again, a relief.

Firstly, Eric, my low-brow amigo, I am not an old-man. I am 17 and currently in attendance at sixth form. Secondly, I had a girlfriend until a few months ago.

Quite simply, Eric, I do not come here to argue, but rather to discuss. This forum was intended for intellectual discussion, not the crap that has appeared over the last couple of months.

Almost 50% of the population has been / is in university. This is not an acheivement - anyone with an IQ over 75 could manage it. Anyway, which university are you going to? The Isle of Wight Institute for Farm Studies?

The fact the forum is divided up into University, Academic etc. does imply that this page is the general 'any topic will do' discussion page though. So whatever this forum was once intended for does not seem to hold true from its current design.
