In response to the ‘Spiked’ article. Someone can believe that the right to free speech is important but (rightly) qualified. It is not necessarily inconsistent or hypocritical for someone with that view to argue that some censure is appropriate in some circumstances but not others. Inconsistencies do arise when someone implies that freedom of speech is inviolable and then goes on to support an infringement of that freedom in any particular instance. The broad brush of this article belies the range of views being expressed on either side. Many commentators (right or wrong) have been consistent in their arguments, then again many haven’t.
