BLOGGERS - EU LAW WILL END FREE SPEECH

Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

An interesting article nicked from The Weekly Telegraph to set alarm bells sounding perhaps ?!

QUOTE........... British bloggers said that free speech on the internet is under threat from draconian new laws, which could see them jailed for up to 3 years.

Europe's justice ministers have agreed genocide denial and race hatred legislation that will outlaw remarks on the internet `carried out in a manner likely to incite violence or hatred`.

The measures are contained in the European Union's Racism and Xenophobia Directive and could hit European bloggers, even if their websites are hosted in America.

Chris Mounsey, the 29 year old behind The Devil's Kitchen blog, said - `there is potenital for this to have worldwide application. Free speech is at the centre of blogging`. UNQUOTE.

So, 2 questions spring to mind.............

1. Does Turkey really want to join the EU, or, rather, should they join the EU ???

2. Will Melih Gokcek, CavCav and Cemal Aydin hold us to account for `hate` posts and send us all to prison ......... boo hoo hoo !!????

Any comments ?

All the best from Fearless Eski Kanka Jim
