Freedom of Speech

Politicians are keen to warn us that we face a terrorist threat to our freedom of speech.

I would remind the politicians that a nation's right to freedom of expression is laid down in its constitution and legal framework.

The terrorists cannot threaten or change these elements, only the politicians can.

Therefore, the threat to our freedom of speech comes not from the terrorists but from the politicians.
