"I have long argued that the giving of offence, and even hate speech, should be a moral matter but not a matter for the criminal law. That is as true on the football pitch as on the streets. We should always challenge racism. We should also always challenge attacks on liberties in the guise of faux antiracism." Kenan Malik


‘After attending a meeting organised by the Norfolk Coalition Against the Cuts held in Sheringham last Friday, at which MP Norman Lamb was present in order to hear his constituents’ concerns about cuts to public services and allowed to defend his position. I came away from this fractious ill-tempered, and not very well run event with my view confirmed that the current system is not working. For not only is it destroying the planet on which we depend for our existence, but it also turns people against one another.

We are never going to find solutions to the problems of today (Let alone tomorrow) whilst everyone is at each others throats, Surely therefore it would be better for all of us to get together and come up with some new ideas, more advanced ways of thinking, more mature ways of doing things.’
