Whatever Happened To Free Speech?

This article in the Telegraph just reinforces my post from last Thursday, and makes me even more glad I moved out of the UK if this is where it is heading.

"Free speech is about understanding that some people hold a different view from you, whether you like it or not. When we start to alert the "authorities" to thought crimes we really are one step away from the dystopian world that Orwell invented as a warning, not a prophecy.

Is Britain now adopting a position where people who support suicide bombers and jihad are able to make known their opinions without legal challenge, whereas those who oppose them cannot?"
