The Right To Offend

The other day a Tory councillor, John Thomson (deputy leader of Wiltshire Council), opined that people are not allowed to offend anyone anymore:

"The law makes it clear that what matters is not the intention of the person who uses the phrase but whether anybody is offended by it."

A rather odd interpretation of the law wouldn't you say, given the recent furore in the Commons over the treatment of Paul Maynard MP (who has mild cerebral palsy) by his fellow MPs?

Could it be that Thomson means that the "no offence" rule only applies to members of the public, such as you and I, and is not applicable to our political "lords and masters"?

Favouritism under the law leads to dictatorship.

Here is John Thomson's email address, feel free to tell him what you think.

  1. Ken,

    Sadly the old saying of; Don't do as we do, do as we say, is alive and well in Nanny land.

  2. There is clearly one law for us, and a totally different set of laws for them!

    But of course the law does have certain advantages - since it is impossible to know what might offend other people, officials, police etc. then you can point out thet you are required by law not to talk to them in case it offends.
