A Victory For Free Speech In A Suppressive ‘New Labour’ State
What a breath of fresh air to learn about victory for free speech
being legally won within a nation that, under New Labour, is becoming as
totalitarian and controlling as was Russia under Stalin! Left to its own
devices, the ability to openly express one’s opinions over factors as
topical and diverse as animal experimentation and sexual deviation,
would - under New Labour - swiftly become a major offence. Consequently,
concerning the former, a goal for freedom of expression occurred
recently in Lancashire. This took place after five highly respectable
academics had been unlawfully arrested for not only verbally protesting
against vivisection, but for also illustrating some of the procedures
used via graphic posters.
High handed police, both within Blackpool as well as Preston, had
conceived that showing animals being tortured in labs was tantamount to
uncalled for agitation, as well as unacceptable exposure, of practices
which were perfectly legal. They blatantly arrested and took in to
custody no less than five of them; three of whom possessed bona fide
doctorates. Naturally, these caring academics were not impressed. They
rightly brought a case against the Lancashire constabulary: one for
false imprisonment, and another under the belief that rights of freedom
of expression - as well as the right to assemble publicly! - had been
violated. ‘Praise God!’ they won their case and an exceedingly red-faced
police force not only had to ‘eat humble pie’ but to pay an undisclosed
‘out of court settlement’.
