A couple of observations on free speech from Ross Fitzgerald:

What an amazing couple of weeks. For the first time in my life I find myself offering unconditional and heartfelt support to the pronouncements by George Pell and the Pope. Well, it wasn’t so much for what they said but for the fact they said it in the face of fulmination and fatwa from a rival religious group …

Why … is it that virtually all the law reformers squealing about the loss of free speech under Philip Ruddock’s anti-terror and anti-hate laws did not speak up for free speech a decade or two ago when governments really started to muzzle people for reasons of political correctness?

Why? Possibly because the squealing law reformers were supportive of such muzzling. Leave it to an Ohio Mitsubishi dealership to fly the flag for freedom!
