1.2 million British servicemen and their allies gave their lives in the 1st World War so that the generations after them could have their freedoms, freedom of speech being one of them.
Today every single one of our servicemen and women are under gagging orders by the MoD. The one young man that dared to voice his opinion in opposing the war in Afghanistan now faces a custodial sentence of up to 10 years.
Freedom of Speech is fundamental in the Universal Declaration of Human Right’s.
It’s a breech of those human right’s to take them away from someone.
I mourned freedom of speech on the 11th of November this year amongst others.
