    A book defending Free Speech has been pulled from publication.

    I think that the author is being a bit disingenuous, or he’s not telling us the whole story.  The publishers said it would be illegal in the UK under incitement to racial hatred laws, but I think that Flynn hasn’t said why.

    I wonder if it’s the usual story of “says something disturbing” “throws up hands in mock horror at resulting outrage”.

    I would prefer to read it and make up my own mind than to have a censor decide on my behalf.
