Petition to Tesco: Keep selling products made by Ashers Bakery

May 24, 2015 by

If someone can be forced by law to say something he disagrees with, we are not a free country. (Peter Hitchens) In Northern Ireland a Christian owned company, Ashers, has been found guilty of discrimination after being hauled before the courts for refusing to bake a cake which was to be iced with the words Support Gay Marriage. Numerous media outlets across Northern Ireland, the UK and further afield have expressed grave concerns that this ruling has serious ramifications for freedom of...

The investigation of Jim Wells is the behaviour of a police state.

May 4, 2015 by

By Brendan O’Neill, Spiked: When we hear stories about the police in faraway states poking their noses – or truncheons – into election campaigns, we balk. The cops, we believe, have no business using either pressure or threats against candidates standing for election.

Conservative Manifesto – Historic Opportunity missed

Apr 18, 2015 by

From Grassroots Conservatives: The Conservative Manifesto says ‘Our historic introduction of gay marriage has helped drive forward equality and strengthened the institution of marriage’, (page 46 of the manifesto). This is a piece of doublespeak unrivalled even in George Orwell’s1984.   Marring an otherwise impressive record over the last parliament, this was an unnecessary, fundamentally misconceived and badly drafted piece of legislation.  It has discredited the legitimate...

Top British Universities Flunk Free Speech

Apr 14, 2015 by

By Peter Martino, Gatestone Institute: The universities were ranked using a traffic-light system: red for universities that ban and actively censor certain ideas on campus; amber for universities that chill free speech, and green for universities that have a hands-off approach to free speech. The results of the Free Speech University Rankings were staggering. Forty-seven universities were marked red, including Oxford and the London School of Economics; 45 were marked amber, including...
