Just two more incidents occuring in this mad mad land we call Britain where freedom of speech was once a treasured possession.

A former Labour MP who supported parents protesting the teaching of LGBT issues to their children without their consent has been axed by the party as a candidate for the coming election.
Roger Godsiff, an MP for 27 years, was deselected by the national party last week after a concerted campaign by LGBT activists. He had previously been reprimanded by the party for telling protestors they had a “just cause”.
Under new regulations schools are required to consult parents about the teaching of Relationships and Sex Education and ensure it “meets the needs of pupils and parents and reflects the community they serve”.
The deselection move is seen as a warning to other MPs who might be sympathetic to parental concerns about the roll-out of inappropriate RSE.
It comes after a survey last year found that 54 per cent of MPs did not feel they could speak freely on transgender issues for fear of attacks on social media and being accused of prejudice.
How sad that in 2019 an MP can be sacked by his party merely for standing up for the justified concerns of his constituents.
Mr Godsiff told supporters that “a small intolerant vindictive group within the LGBT community” had carried out a “vicious and vindictive campaign of character assassination” against him.
It is increasingly clear that in our free and tolerant society some people believe only one opinion should be allowed. It was repeatedly warned that free speech would be one of the casualties of same-sex marriage. It gives us no pleasure to find that we were right.
A temporary Provost at Worcester College Oxford has banned the saying of the Anglican grace before meals, despite the fact that it has been said for many years, and replace it with a 'range of set texts of thanksgiving from any world culture, religious or not.  This is on the base of inclusivity, and to avoid hurting feelings of others.
There always has to be someone seeking their few minutes of fame by making some inane and fatuous comment.  If students were to be offended, they are obviously as unsuitable for being in the college as the Provost herself.
What a terrifying thought when the future of the country is often considered to be in the hands and minds of graduates from our top Universities and you read nonsense like this. If a student finds it hurts their feedlings, no one is fording them to stay.
