7PM Today an Islamist extremist was fined £50 for burning poppies on the anniversary of armistice day. Clearly a despicable act, but was it right to involve the law? What happened to freedom of speech? What are the limits of freedom of speech and freedom of expression? Should we be worried that freedom of speech, expression and thought are now under attack?
