Tim Worstall has provided us with his weekly BritBlog round up, and there are a few gems worth highlighting directly. The Liberator describes Blackpool as "a Chav Beirut" and also quotes my MP's description of the place. OK, small bias, Torquay is a rival to Blackpool in the tourist industry, but from thet description, Torbay wins hands down. The Campaign for an English Parliament (as in those misguided reformers I'm directly opposed to) also give us an English blog round up.
However, the pick of the week is definately Tim Ireland at Bloggerheads giving us a summary of the Labour eviction and the worrying implications for freedom of speech:
The bottom line is that apologies have been made, so it's all over and it shouldn't worry your little heads that an anti-terror Act was used to stifle legitimate debate.
He then goes on to highlight many of my concerns over the end result of limiting freedom of speech:
This attempt to stifle and shut down debate under cover of zero-tolerance of terrorism enrages animal rights activists. Some who feel they have little choice take that Big Step Beyond Reason, and the next thing you know grandma's bones are kidnapped and hidden in a shed in Burton-Upon-Trent.Freedom of speech must be an absolute.
Repeat message: Continuing to deny reality actually makes the problem worse.
Oh; read on till the end, I love the Santa Claus thing, wonder if we can get it into a t-shirt?
