Re: “If UK is the cradle of free speech, the baby is being strangled”, Have Your Say, June 16.
Nigel Pike takes a swipe at me for taking swipes at others; come to your own conclusion about that. That’s fine by me, though, as I’m all for exploring the complex interplays between various actors who deposit their thoughts here, and in so doing create an arena for often vociferous debate and conjecture. Even to the point of foisting swivel-eyed conspiracies on the readers. If anyone finds occasionally heated discourse distasteful, get out of the kitchen. I would however advise Nigel to calm down and think his missives through a tad more carefully, as emotion can sometimes cloud one’s judgement.
So I encourage entertaining thought-evoking imagination, and keeping an open mind, by other contributors. But not so open that your brains fall out.
