End ‘Boo-Hoo’ Bans on Free Speech! Oz to Repeal ‘Bolt Law?’


‘It’s now very common to hear people say “I’m rather offended by that”, as if that gives them certain rights. It’s no more than a whine. It has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. “I’m offended by that.” Well, so f***ing what?’

”…it is a very important part of my agenda to re-centre that debate so that when people talk about rights, they talk about the great liberal democratic rights of freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom of worship and freedom of the press.”

A spokesman for Mr Abbott said the Coalition would repeal section 18C because ”it enables the censorship of free speech.’  http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/george-brandis-to-repeal-bolt-laws-on-racial-discrimination-20131108-2x50p.html#ixzz2nWLlQPBL

If only the UK would follow suit, and restore to Brits the common law freedoms ripped from them by the oppressive anti-discrimination industry.
