Nanny Bans T Shirts - Freedom of Speech Is Dead
Nanny would have us believe that we live in a free country, where freedom of speech is guaranteed.
True enough, so long as you don't say anything that offends Nanny or her minions; as pensioners Mike Lacey, John Wilding and his wife Tessa found out the other day.
They were attempting to join a demonstration at Heathrow airport against the proposed new runway when they were questioned and escorted from Heathrow, after police decided the Stop Airport Expansion slogan on their T-shirts was "inflammatory".
What was this "inflammatory" phrase?
"Stop Airport Expansion"
Mike Lacey, John Wilding and his wife Tessa were stopped as they tried to join a demonstration against plans for a third runway.
Five Met police officers took their names, addresses and descriptions and followed them out of a bus terminal, warning they would be arrested if they returned within 24 hours.
In a "stop and search form" officers wrote that Mr Lacey was questioned because he had been "seen in the bus terminal wearing inflammatory clothes".
A sorry state of affairs indeed when a simple T shirt upsets the state, freedom of speech is dead!
