House of Lords Debate watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a debate coming up for my politics class on freedom of speech. I'm a main speaker and have to give a 3 minute speech for the idea of "monitoring freedom of speech" and I started planning my speech and was wondering if anyone had any points on it. You can be against the idea of monitoring or censoring freedom of speech or you can be against the idea of having no limits to freedom of speech. I would like to here any points and peoples view, thank you.

    (Original post by Fox Corner)

    Freedom of speech guarantees the freedom of press I assume?
    The freedom of press is abused by billionaires such as Murdoch who have the power to determine democracy (1992, 1997, 2010, EU referendum). Speaking of the EU referendum... hate language, unjustified attacks on our judiciary, the lies in campaigns such as the leave campaign. These all demonstrate areas of free speech that should be regulated.

    Hopefully I'm not too late!
