David Irving Gaoled

David Irving Gaoled, and my first reaction is 'Good, you anti-semitic nut job'. But his crime was denial of the Holocaust, and this is were the problems come in. You see freedom of speech means that you should be free to speak, even if you are spouting nonsence. Even if that nonsence is insulting. Even if that nonsence is trying to paper over genocide. The best defence is to counter the nonsence with truth, so I have to say that Irving should not have been sent to gaol. He has managed to make me defend him, bastard. Now excuse me while I go and wash the keyboard.
