Ken Livingston wins his high court appeal against a finding he brought his office (him being mayor of London) into disrepute after likening Evening Standard journalist, Oliver Finegold (him being Jewish), to a Nazi camp guard.
Mr Justice Collins (him being educated) says "the right of freedom of speech does extend to abuse". So it seems Ken can continue to be "unnecessarily offensive".
Great news as we fall out of the pubs at closing time and take an irrational dislike for someone. As we hurl abuse we can be confident in the precedent set by Mr Justice Collins (him being educated) and Ken Kivingston (him being our Mayor).
It's ok to be abusive to someone. We're just exercising our freedom of speech.
.... and hang the consequences. How exactly does this relate to our growing culture of yobbish behaviour, stabbings, and the vast sums of money squandered in the NHS as A&E respond to late night brawlers? Eh.....Look, the important thing is my right to insult and abuse someone be protected by our legal system!
What's next? Perhaps it's time for Ken (him being Mayor of London) to walk to work in a football shirt and a can of tennants.
