Hairy Moneyball and free speech

Meet Mary Honeyball, Labour MEP for London and blogger. (To be fair to her she allows comments and sometimes responds to them). She posted a constituent email about the TICAP - now Ind/Dem conference on prohibition.

Her own comments were rude and dismissive, even suggesting that her correspondent was paid.

This diatribe comes to you courtesy of a Ms Brenda Orsler, a delegate to the
conference against prohibition who apparently paid to attend out of her own
resources.

As far as I can make out, it is a pro-smoking event. What is even more
interesting is that has been sponsored by the appalling Godfrey Bloom, UKIP MEP.


And then her comments box caught fire, go take a look, it is quite fun.

Free Speech? I was looking forward to this post. But, when embarrassed, remove the post seems to be the route taken by Mary Honeyball MEP. Shame.

Well he is appalling - and I have far better things to do than clean behind the fridge!
