Why FS?

Why the FS in It stands for Free Speech and this is important in any democracy. It is a feature of dictatorships that free speech and freedom of the press are suppressed and that access to information is controlled.

Fortunately in this country we have a democratic system of government and generally people are free to express opinions that criticise government policy. The Human Rights Act 1998 provides a legal basis for this in the form of a right to Freedom of Expression.

There are many quotations relating to free speech but this seems particularly apt:-

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear." - George Orwell, Preface to Animal Farm (1946)
