Rowan Atkinson tells it like it is on free speech.


Marvelous speech, well worth 9 mins of your life.

I know other bloggers have also put this up but it is a breath of fresh air to see someone so high profile speaking out so truthfully.

Rowan Atkinson rails against the ‘intimidating censoriousness’ that Section 5 and that ‘too many things can be construed as offence and insult’

He also laid into the ‘outrage industry’ and said that the best cure for hate speech is more free speech.

It’s worth visiting the Reform Section 5 site to see what the battle is all about.
