So much for free speech.

Sure the man might be the leader of a BNP splinter group and you might think what he (and Churchill) said is wrong and offensive but regardless he has been arrested for expressing an opinion. He did not suggest that anyone should attack Muslims or anything.

There is nothing what he said that could be incitement.

This is more evidence that Public Order acts and other related laws are responsible for trampling over freedom of speech.

EDIT: Correction it seems the LibertyGB isn't a BNP splinter group (although it does have very similar opinons about keeping Britain a white majority country). Regardless now matter what its views are they should be allowed to express them and put them to the public for debate.

"He was detained after failing to comply with a request by police to move on under the powers of a dispersal order."

"He was further arrested on suspicion of religious or racial harassment."

So not arrested for quoting Churchill then. You can always count on the UK press for misleading headlines.

Tbh just because a famous historical figure said something doesn't mean people can give random public speeches quoting them.

Churchill, while being a great wartime leader, had some pretty reprehensible beliefs.

I do think that the police were justified in arresting him, because his speech wasn't planned, and he basically got a megaphone and started quoting a passage to provoke people.

Unless the 'harassment' came from quoting Churchill.

The 'suspicion of religious or racial harassment' was because he was quoting Churchill

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Yeah, screw people who care about women's rights. Let's just lock them away. Should be taken outside and shot for saying this.

To anyone that opens this thread: read the BBC article before you make yourself look horribly silly.

You can always count on the BBC to not explain what actually happened when it comes to things that aren't politically correct (saying mean things about Islam).
Him quoting Churchill was the apparent "religious of racial harassment."

The original reason of him being arrested was dropped but then he was rearrested him on grounds of "racial or religious discrimination" .


So he was not charged with anything do to with him shouting through a megaphone.

Now he is charged with something to do with what he said. This is the point. He said something and now he being charged with a criminal offence.

You do realise you would be guilty of assault?
You can't shoot people because they have vile opinions.

Fanatical Muslims have the right to attempt to persuade people to embrace Sharia. Of course they are living in fantasy world, it will never happen but they are allowed to try.

Of course any violent attempt to force it must be responded with deadly force.

To my knowledge it's not gone anywhere near the extent that I saw in that video. If you've any news to the contrary I'd appreciate a link.

In other words you would use the 2nd Amendment against the 1st. Great logic.
