Rowan Atkinson on Freedom of Speech



I disagree only with Mr Atkinson's statement that 'The Police' feel under enormous pressure to act when some outrage junkie, or police officer, decides to take offence at some trivial and inconsequential utterance, gesture or act. 'The Police' too often seem only too happy to act with excessive vigour at the merest excuse, which, from his speech he is clearly aware of, and is why section 5 of the Public Order Act, and other items of pernicious legislation, must be repealed.
