Champions of Free Speech

A quote from Mick Hume on, 19 July 2005

Every government minister or official spokesman has emphasised their commitment to defend ‘tolerance’ – which, in the Newspeak of New Labour, means that they will not tolerate anything that they deem to be intolerant of Islam or Muslims. All of this pre-emptive censorship seems likely to intensify a sense of grievance among some white people, and to allow the likes of the British National Party to pose as the champions of free speech and open debate.
