Victory for free speech in UK
A remarkable result in the commons today meant the government lost their attempt to overturn the Lords amendments to the Racial and Religious Hatred Bill.
MPs voted by 288 to 278 to back the Lords amendment.
Evan Harris, Lib Dem human rights spokesman said
The government just failed to understand that they can’t take liberties with freedom of expression.
This has showed tonight that we will stand up for freedom of expression.
Crack open a bottle of what you fancy. This is a great day.
