Your right to say it

FreespeechNow this is a post that, I am sure, will surprise some people but I entirely agree with the change/repeal of what is now known as ’Bolts Law’. While I think Andrew Bolt is a right wing twat, I also believe that this bit of legislation went too far. In the words of Voltaire – I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it(yes I know not actually his direct words) and from a more modern source that puts it far more succinctly in my opinion..

Stephen Fry

“It’s now very common to hear people say, ‘I’m rather offended by that.’ As if that gives them certain rights. It’s actually nothing more… than a whine. ‘I find that offensive.’ It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. ‘I am offended by that.’ Well, so fucking what.”
