Freedom of Speech EU style - update
Further to this post, it seems that the EU parliament has not voted as I had feared. However I predict that this proposal will rear its head again in the not too distant future. The EU does not like dissent, it does not like opposition, it knows that it is the one true path and those of us who disagree should either shut up or face the consequences. With Gordon Brown's disintegrating government of quislings welcoming EU plans to allow British citizens to be tried in their absence in other member states and for British subjects to be extradited automatically at the request of other EU states under the proposals, the future of free speech in the UK has never looked so precarious.
