Priti Patel to take axe to Tony Blair’s hate speech laws fuelling woke cancel culture

Hate speech

CONTROVERSIAL hate speech laws in England and Wales are set to be overhauled because they are being used to attack freedom of speech.

EXPRESS.CO.UK

Since hate speech laws were introduced, the left has used them to cancel discussion and cancel those who do not share their opinions. The law has eroded unity amongst people from different background, creating an ever-growing divide amongst British society. Instead of this law protecting people, more and more use this law to go after people who have a differing opinion and attack speech. We should discuss differences without fear of attack. Maybe then there we will a coming together meaning the lefts segregation by labels will be destroyed. The big question is, do you back Priti Patel on this move?

Definitely you can’t arrest some one for having a different opinion

100%. Hate is a thought. There is no such thing as a thought crime except in 1984. Provided speech does not incite crime, it must be free, however offensive some might find it.

We must try to be honest in expressed how we feel and think but not such that we abuse or hurt another.In other words the INTENTION must be PURE.

This politically correct agenda has only buried the REAL feelings of so many which has made resentment fester and hatred spill over most regrettably.

It’s about time something was done about this cancel mentality because we as individuals do not think the same. What happened to the days of healthy discussions and debates? Hope this overhaul takes place soon it’s long overdue
