New Labour's war on freedom

Freedom of speech is one of the most fundamental of our natural rights. For this reason it is the subject of the First Amendment to the US Constitution, but that doesn't help you much if you're living in Airstrip 1 under the fabian jackboots of New Labour, and godless as the fabians undoubtedly are, they're not averse to burning one of their co-irreligionists, for the greater good.

Hence we learn of an atheist convicted of the absurd non-crime of putting anti-Christian and anti-Islam leaflets in a 'prayer room' in Liverpool Airport. We can safely assume that the authorities would have let the anti-Christian stuff pass, especially as 'prayer rooms' are for muslims. This is deemed to be "causing religiously aggravated harassment". Aw, diddums.

The Secular Society is up in arms, for good reason, but as usual they will blame religious people, but it wasn't religious people who brought in all these ludicrous laws, it was your pals the fabians in government. The aim is not to shield the religious, but to stifle free speech.

Their aims seem to be several-fold, Trooper:

* to stifle free speech;
* to appease the Muslims;
* to set groups against each other (divide and conquer);
* to tighten the grip/control of government;
* to persecute Christians.

The last probably seems remote in this case, but I believe it is part of a wider picture - of which this is just one piece of the puzzle.

All agreed, although I think the only motive of point 2 is point 3.
