Religious Hatred Bill Blocked in British Parliament

Thank fuck. Sounds nice doens't it? A way to stop people hating each other based on religion. But we all know it's the governments attempts to woo the 1.8 million Muslims in this country after going to war in 'their countries'. This is bullshit, and another attempt to stiffle free speech. One has a right to be offensive; so long as he is not inciting violence.
"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost."
Jefferson, Thomas 3rd President of the United States (1801-1809)

    If people hate fantasies (sorry, religions) that is their business and we can only gain consensus or understanding by open, honest and public debate.

    A leftist would accuse Jefferson of being simplistic... And that's their raison d'confusion.

    do you reckon this would have made it past the lords if the commons hadn't kicked it out?

    i was watching a clip from PMQ yesterday and one bill was rejected something like 284/283, not sure if it was this one, but very close result IMO.

    gavin there is a big difference between debate and conversation...one is an argument the other is communication.

    Yes J mate, too close. If Tony B has been present it might have worked out diffrerently. Maybe Tony B realised the error of his ways...
