All my previous posts were in jest and written with my tongue in my cheek.

Thankfully TPTB still need some lawful reason to obtain my personal data, thankfully having seditious opinions isn't on the 5am knock the door down squads list of priorities ..yet.

Well there is no formal right to freedom of speech and expression in the UK, unlike our US counterparts who actually have a constitution that enshrines it forever, it's no surprise "your rights to free speech", that the MSM crows on about occasionally when it suits their agenda, is a load of utter twaddle, you simply don't have one, any judge or assumer of authority will gladly remind you of that given the chance.

Not long ago Samina Malik was convicted of terrorism for writing a poem. Later overturned on appeal. But think of all the poets (Byron for starters) who'd be locked up under our current regime.

Playing devils advocate: afaik, the Malaysian regime does not torture dissidents or have them disappear. As far as I can see, speech there is free in that you can say what you want, if and only if, you are prepared to pay a price for that freedom. No free digs. I heard of a seditious Malaysian newspaper editor that was regularly held for some weeks. They'd let him out and sometime later he'd publish criticism again. Rinse and repeat. He has the right to hassle them, they have the right to hassle him back.

Free speech here is taken as the right to spout anything and everything against tptb without consequence.

Both ways, imo, are not 100% correct as something is lost whichever way 'order' and/or 'freedom' is maintained.
