The Daley Dozen: Friday

1. Phil Taylor sounds off about why 63 Muslims are supporting Ken Livingstone. Couldn't be anything to do with vested interests, could it?

2. Bob Roberts on Kevin Maguire reckons we shouldn't talk ourselves into a recession. Blimey, it's word for word what I said in a TalkSPORT interview yesterday.

3. Gareth Young on Our Kingdom reckons an English Grand Committee could be a Trojan Horse for an English Parliament. Good.

4. LibDem Voice has made two transfer window signings - Jonathan Calder and Mike Smithson. The fee was undisclosed...

5. Alleyinsider asks if Matt Drudge is on the wane.

6. Ellee Seymour on the Sharia Law which says men can divorce women by text message.

7. The Police are about to arrest British Blogger, Lionheart.

8. The gayers are bad drivers according to Donal Blaney. I'm calm. I'm calm.

9. John Redwood remembers five men who fleed in the 17th century.

10. The Waendel Journal says Kenyan Police hold the key.

11. Grendel pays a tribute to Sports Report. Quite right too. 60 not out.

12. EU Referendum feels sorry for Cyprus and Malta - and not because they're islands.

If Lionheart is charged or Imprisoned it does not take a Genius to realise that unless Britons rise up and retake their country, their children are doomed.

should you really be promoting a BNP biased blogger?

what lionheart has failed to mention here is that nobody has yet been found guilty of a crime against charlene downes whereas the wests and sutcliffe were found guilty. lionheart also constantly refers to the accused as moslem men but he has not made any reference to the religious beliefs of the wests or sutcliffe or brady or hindley or black or tobin or ........
lionheart and british patriot are not in actual fact british patriots they are racist bigots.

Iain - honestly, are you as a prospective Tory MP linking to Lionheart? This Lionheart: "How dare any Moslem try and silence the truth from being told by an Englishman about the Islamic enemy in our midst".

And this one: "I wonder if the Moslem peer Lord Ahmed was one of the people behind trying to silence me, I did wonder about why he crashed his car and nearly killed himself over Christmas, let that be a lesson to you - 1 Chronicles 16:22 Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”"

And then there's that picture of a pregnant woman in a burqa, with the caption, "the other Islamic bomb."

Seriously Iain, is this who you want to be associated with?

With respect, the link to Lionheart does not necessarily imply Mr Dale's support for his post or the entire contents of his blog.

His Grace also covered this, not least because of the issue of freedom of expression.

Even if Lionheart is a deluded idiot, political extremist or a raving lunatic, it is concerning that he should be threatened with arrest for his writings. In an important judgement on a case dealing with religious freedom of speech in the High Court on 23rd July 1999, Lord Justice Sedley quoted Socrates and two famous Quakers when he declared: "The irritating, the contentious, the eccentric, the heretical, the unwelcome and provocative have a right to be heard."

Presumably, and however irritatingly, that must include 'BNP sympathisers', but sympathy for the sympathisers does not equate to sympathy with either their religious or political views.

barry day - Iain Dale doesn't have to agree with this guy in order to be disturbed about what is happening. I can't say I agree with voting BNP, and I haven't read lionheart's blog in any detail, but I am worried about Islam in the UK, given everything that has happened, how could I not be? Lionheart claims he hasn't called for anyone's death, as I said I haven't read the blog, but presumably if that is not true it can easily be shown.

I am not a BNP supporter nor am i racist,but after typing "JIHADI VERSES" into google it beggars belief that the book from which these are taken is legal.Their is something seriously wrong with the interpretations of the laws on hatred as these verses are from the koran.

Ross said...

I don't know about Lionheart's BNP links, not having heard of him before today, but free speech isn't restricted only to people you approve of because otherwise it isn't free.

Little Black Sambo said...

Anon 8.39, average white bloke, barry day, the tendency of your comments is, "speech is free, if you happen to agree with me." The whole point is that nobody, even as correct and good as yourselves, should be able to decide what we may or may not say. Unfortunately the law is being rewritten to your reasonable demands.

LBS - I did not say anything about Lionhearts right to free speech I just commented on what impression he left with me
