London Mayor Khan Cracks Down on Free Speech
« on: August 16, 2016, 09:07:07 AM »
The UK is rapidly headed down the rabbit hole into internet censorship. The pretext is the elimination of hate speech. I suspect a more sinister motive (and a more sinister outcome, too.)

That would be the elimination of dissent, particularly  pro-Brexit, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim dissent.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
