VICTORY FOR FREE SPEECH CAMPAIGN

HOME SECRETARY THERESA MAY announced in January that the word ‘insulting’ would be removed from Section 5 of the Public Order Act.  
Under this legislation, Christians and non-Christians have come into conflict with the law for making innocuous comments which have been construed as insulting by those who do not share their beliefs.
The victory followed successful publicity by the Reform Section 5 campaign, fronted by comedy star Rowan Atkinson, famous for his character Blackadder’s acerbic wit, as reported in the last HEART OF SUSSEX.
