Phil Woolas - A Rant

Phil Woolas is still trying desparately to stay in politics, despite being uncerimoniously booted out of the House of Commons by a Special Election Court after being found guilty of deliberately misleading the electorate.

His defence? That freedom of speech at elections is at stake.

At this point I will explode.

Freedom of speech? You brainless sack of monkey scrotums! Your fucking Labour Government have done more to restrict freedom of speech than ANY other Government. You sanctimonious prick. What about incitement to racial hatred? Hmmm? What about ID cards? What about Twitter Joke trials? What about the Gurkhas, despite having fought for this country, being denied the right to live here by your vile, despicable ilk? Don't talk to me about freedom, you fetid pool of arse-gravy.

And, although I am a defender of freedom of speech, there is a difference between freedom of speech and deliberately lying about a political opponent in order to get elected! Freedom of speech does not mean the freedom to lie. Say what you like, but be prepared to substantiate your accusations, or face the consequences.

Freedom of speech is a right. But it comes with responsibilities.

Says it all.
