Sweden – another newspaper another demo

The Local reports on a demo outside a second Swedish newspaper. Upsala Nya Tidning, 70Km north of Stockholm, had also published a MoDog cartoon. A crowd of around 550 Muslim demonstrators protested peacefully outside its office yesterday.

Meanwhile in Stockholm the meeting between the Swedish PM and 22 delegates from Muslim countries passed uneventfully. According to Reinfeldt, no demands were made.

The one comedy quote came from Hassan Ghashghavi, the diplomat from Iran, the world’s leading hanging-and-stoning regime:

We reject all forms of violence, psychological as well as physical.

Ghashghavi went on to demonstrate his fundamental misunderstanding of basic principles:

Causing offence does not belong to the concept of freedom of speech.

Yes it does.

    So why was Jim Davidson thrown of Hell’s Kitchen for causing offence? Fuck is OK, but “shirt lifter” isn’t – even when the remark is not made in a homophobic manner?

    Jim “Yes, but those Fokkers were Messerschmitts” Davidson, Martyn. I think that’s when his career went into freefall.
