Historically, there have been no restrictions on who could speak and what could be said at the famed Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park. But that was before Theresa May’s government decided to fabricate a terror threat from “right-wing extremists” that is supposedly equivalent to the jihad terror threat. Last week, Tommy Robinson tried to speak at Speakers’ Corner but was stopped by police.
Today, he spoke there amid rioting by Muslims determined to silence him. Police, not surprisingly, did little to stop the rioters, focusing more on the Britons who were there to defend the freedom of speech.
