It is refreshing isn't it. It is similar to when Angela Merkel said what we all know which is that Multiculturalism isn't working.
Think most right thinking people go with this, Sue.
I believe it's more about control than trying to do what is right. The trouble with curbing this sort of free speech is, it tends to the opposite.
If I could think up an effective way to insult you, I would. Terrorist-sympathiser might be a decent start (in light of your ideas about attacking the EU with violence, although I'm sure it's only rhetorical.) ;)(Seriously, though - I agree with every word. I've always liked Atkinson from Blackadder to Mr Bean to The Thin Blue Line.)
Paul, as my old mum used to say "Sticks and stones...." If I were the violent sort, I would have blown up Brussels by now :)Another great saying "The pen is mightier than the sword"..
