Free Speech: The Sun says the cornerstone of our democracy is ‘nonsense’

Free Speech: The Sun champions the rights to think aand say what we like.

Following the murderous attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine, the Sun says “free speech is a cornerstone of our democracy”. We are in a “freedom fight”.

But how does that sit with the Sun’s featuring on Rochester Man Dan Ware’s “No Nonsense” manifesto.

Apparently, the Sun thinks it’s “nonsense” that anyone who burns a Remembrance Day poppy is not jailed.

When did a poppy – one you’ve bought with your own money or made with your own hands –  become a sacred object?

Free speech: it’s the right to cause offence.
