    Is there freedom of speech under British law?

    Saw another poster here put this up about being detained in an airport for making a comment that a woman in a Birka did not have to show her face.

    UK: Creator of children's character "Fireman Sam" detained at airport for noting that a veiled Muslim woman passed through security without showing her face - Jihad Watch

    I didn't want to hijack his post, but every time I read a British news article there's something like really bizarre like this in regards to U.K. law. Is it really true you cannot say anything racially offensive there? Yes, I understand, racism not good. But it's allowed in the U.S.A. under the first amendment. Seriously, Britain does not have freedom of speech?

    no, you can't

    freedom of speech always has limits, otherwise other peoples' freedoms get curtailed

    Typical spineless libtard response. What utter crap. "freedoms get curtailed"

    Otherwise others get offended is what these spineless sellouts really are saying.

    The left wing is not about freedom. Exactly the opposite. Fascism. Only difference is, unlike rightwing fascism, they don't have the spine to say so.

    The Police force in UK has an association of Police Officers which is for every serving officer.
    A second association was formed which was only for non white officers.
    When they asked to form a third association only for whites, permission was refused because membership was racially discriminated.

    The UK beggars belief these days.

    Placing his belongings, including a scarf, into a tray to pass through the X-ray scanner he spotted a Muslim woman in hijab pass through the area without showing her face.
    In a light-hearted aside to a security official who had been assisting him, he said: “If I was wearing this scarf over my face, I wonder what would happen.”
    The quip proved to be a mistake. After passing through the gates, he was confronted by staff and accused of racism.
    What race is Islam again?
    Seems that the guy in question was reported to a female Muslim supervisor by this toadying "security official" and made to apologise before being let go without charge.
    Soo much of this crap in the UK now, much of which is a smokescreen to occupy the population whilst they're being robbed.

    Don't get me started on these imbeciles. Having to take my shoes off going out of Heathrow because some fucking bint in an abaya decides is the biggest insult of all, because it was a fucking MUSLIM that tried to blow his trainers up.

    Just do proper profiling.

    99.9% of airplane terrorists are muslims. Stop and search every fucking single one of them until they get pissed off enough to grass up the scum in their midst.

    And let the couple going on a SAGA holiday travel without an invasive and frankly rude body search by some fucking meaningless jobsworth to whom having that petty little piece of power gives life meaning.

    They obviously got your email from when you registered for that competition on the back of the ExLax packet (What was it, "Win a Zimmer frame"?). Never give your personal information away to marketers.

    It's the libbie fuckwits that piss me off more than the actual Muslims. If they (the muzzies) were told to just shut the fuck up and stop acting like cocks, there'd be less of this kind of crap.

    Being in a hurry , I once tried to enter my U.K. bank wearing my crash helmet. I was not allowed to do so on the grounds that my face could not be seen.

    I wonder if motorcycling could be re classed as a religion would it have been more acceptable ?

    issued by a white native
    other wise it would get too too crazy.

    Then of course there is nothing worse than arriving in the UK and having some jingly asking "Why are you wanting to be coming to my country?".

    (Usual answer: "I'm not, I'm coming to mine").

    Freedom of speech is guaranteed in the UK to any person that is of non White European heritage.

    White Europeans however, are forced to flagilate themselves for the enormous burden of White Shame and White Guilt!

    Thankfully though, it seems that our Australian bastard cousins (our ginger haired stepchildren) are finally waking up to what this actually means.

    Take a look at the link, then take a look at the hundreds of comments! These fuckers have had their day and their time will eventually come!

    One of the coniquences of living togther rather than as hermits is that one persons freedom to do somthing often conflicts with someone elses freedon not to have to live with it.

    Your right to pay music as load as you want vs your neignbours right to peace and quiet. Your right to discriminate aginst other people, vs other peoples right to be treated equally. Its not about left wing fashism, its simply a matter of imposing compromises in situations where you have conflicting and mutially exclusive rights.

    As for this chap, ive read the story and if you take it at face value, hard with the telegraph, it would seem to me that the person accusing him of being offencive was making this assumption on the basis that he was white and non muslem, he should perhapse have filed his own complaint against his accuser.

    I am seeing a lot more court cases, and the recent FA fining of players because they "Tweeted" homophobic or racist comments, it is a bit worrying where Free Speech in the UK is going these days.

    It seems you can go about your business in peace if you are a Muslim cleric that spouts hatred and supports terrorism, as the EU will support your human rights (Is it a HUMAN) so you won't be deported, but if you mention the word "Fag" "Nigger" etc.......woe betide you!

    At least the UK isn't quite in the big league with Germany, Austria, France, Spain etc. with their disgusting "Thought Crimes" (Not yet at least, give them time!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laws_ag...locaust_denial

    As for cases of playing music too loud, discrimination etc. I think it boils down to simple respect - treat others as you would expect to be treat yourself. Anyone that plays loud music and annoys the neighbours is simply an ignorant twat - there is a time and place for everything. If these people had a modicum of decency, or behaved like a normal human being, there would not be a need for laws like these.

    Sadly (from my experience years ago in Newcastle) a lot of people just seem to think it is their God given right to do whatever they want whenever they want and fuck everyone else.

    I lived in an upstairs flat - Yes - UPSTAIRS - Where this retarded fuckwit and his whore slut childbride used to spend the hours between 8pm and 1 am bouncing a fucking tennis ball off their ceiling - i.e. my floor!

    Eventually, they decided to desist after I hit him with a table leg!

    You really shouldn't have to have laws to protect normal decent behaviour, if creatures like these persist, they should be sterilized and removed from society and their disgusting gene pool weeded out.

    Spend too much time thinking and anaylizing one's freedoms and liberties instead of living them.

    The problem these days is if you take your eye off them, the next time you look they will be GONE!

    If it keeps on going the way it is, we won't be allowed to own negro slaves, or partake in heterosexual sex!

    What is the world coming to?

    It wasn't like this when I was a lad, a good birching across the buttocks or a Catholic Priests cock in your mouth....well there was discipline - No same sex marriages in those days, you were spat at if you "lived over the broom"

    "Love Thy Neighbour" and "'Til Death Us Do Part" were all family value shows!
