Freedom of speech is a memory in England


Northumbria Police carefully investigated all the comments left on its Facebook page about the Operation Shelter scandal, in which young white girls in were groomed, sexually abused and trafficked by mostly Muslim men of Pakistani descent in Newcastle.

They did so after a member of the public complained that a number of posts referred to the race and religion of the 18 people convicted in the case.

The police tracked down six people who left comments “deemed to be offensive and potentially criminal”.

“Following an investigation, which has now concluded, we spoke to two males as voluntary attenders and visited a further four people in their homes, and provided them with words of advice. All expressed their remorse and stated that the intention of their comments was not to cause concern or to be offensive and have acknowledged the words of advice provided. 
"We would also like to take this opportunity to remind people using social media that they should do so responsibly and ensure they do not post anything which could be considered offensive.”

So Britain has freedom of speech so long as you do not say anything that could be considered offensive.

As you know, gentle reader, because it is self-evident, freedom of speech means the freedom to offend. 

Freedom to say things that could not be considered offensive is not freedom at all. It is public relations.

There are so many things like this in the British press every day. And on the continent. The stories are innumerable. Here is a terrible example from Holland from two years ago.

Here is the story of an Englishman who was prosecuted for calling his MP a coward.

And here the story of a Twitter user who was sent down for two months for expressing the hope that a celebrity footballer would not pull out of a coma and then in the altercation that ensued using the word that must never be uttered, that it is wise to redact as 'n-gger'.

Here is the conclusion of Stanley Baldwin's last broadcast to the nation as Prime Minister in 1937.

"And what is her [Britain's] secret? Freedom, ordered freedom, within the law, with force in the background and not in the foreground: a society in which authority and freedom are blended in due proportion, in which state and citizen are both ends and means. It is an empire organised for peace and for the free development of the individual in and through an infinite variety of voluntary associations. It neither deifies the state nor its rulers."


  1. The police tell us they have no time or "resources" to investigate anything other than "serious crime" - so this is what they mean by "serious crime".

  2. In Leftwing police states like Stalin's Russia and May's Britain thought criminals are punished more severely than violent criminals and sex criminals. Compare and contrast:

    Predatory’ Syrian refugee, 22, who launched sickening sex attacks on six women in an underpass after he was ‘fast-tracked’ into Britain is jailed for 16 months

    Cambridge extremist jailed for four years after inciting racial hatred online

    1. This is amazing. I see that the sentence was reduced from 4 to 2 and a half years.

  3. You must ensure that you don’t post anything which *could* be *considered* “offensive.”

    Thats a more extreme thought-control regime than any totalitarian government has implemented. At least under communism people had a clear enough idea of what they would be arrested for saying.

    The police in Britain are now completely devoted to protecting the feelings of criminal invaders and oppressing and intimidating the white population.
