Opinion or Incitement?



You only watched 'Question Time' last night, because you noticed that Mrs Caroline Flint was on the panel. Smart, sexy, intelligent, remarkably vivacious, she is, what you believe to be, the epitome of woman and a reason for younger men and lesbians, to become enthralled in politics.

One of the issues that came up was whether or not the British National Party leader Nick Griffin, should have been let into the 'prestigious' debating arena that is the Oxford Union, to speak about his views and policies. Yes, Mr Griffin may have, as far as you are concerned, extremely misguided opinions, but still, he should have the right to express them.

Mr Griffin almost didn't actually get to deliver his speech, because quite a few people seemed to think he shouldn't be allowed to. The irony here would have been quite amusing if it weren't pathetic, these people were outside exercising their right to free speech, whilst protesting that Mr Griffin shouldn't be permitted to exercise his.

You wonder if they actually realise how much they hindered their own cause?

Mrs Caroline Flint seemed to think that he shouldn't have, you couldn't disagree with her more though, and in essence, if she wishes to have a 'debating' session with you on a one to one basis, you certainly won't turn her down, after all, 'debating' with her, would bring new meaning to the term.

'I may disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.'

Voltaire.
