John Mortimer Must Be Rolling in His Grave

I suppose that Speaker's Corner will go next because apparently the United Kingdom no longer believes in freedom of speech.

Now, I am not a fan of Michael Savage. Or really of talk radio in general (unless its sports). It tends to bring out the kooks (and there is Salty for the sports talk). But everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

However, according Her Majesty's Government, only people with acceptable view points may now enter the United Kingdom and its remaining colonies. Hard to believe that the birthplace of many of the freedoms we take for granted, now cannot stand to have people say things that they might offend others.

Sir John Mortimer would have Rumpole on this, but now all he can do is roll in his grave.
