Remove Michael Savage from Banned in Britain List for exercising Free Speech

Immediately remove top 4 American Radio Talk Show Host Michael Savage from the UK's Banned List for exercising Free Speech.

Apologize to him for printing false and damaging libelous accusations that he has called for and incited violence, as well as putting him on a list of known murderers and terrorists.

For over a decade and a half, Michael has always been against violence on his talk show, and regularly cuts off callers who even hint at violence.

The U.S. FCC laws are clear, and he would have been taken off the radio if he had suggested or incited violence of any kind. 

Why is this idea important?

Repeal the Obscene Publications Act of 1959 and 1964

The Obscene Publications Acts prohibit the production of material likely to "deprave and corrupt" those likely to view it. This is applied to all films being processed by the BBFC, especially pornography.

I would also like to see Section 63 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 repealed as it prohibits  'extreme pornography' such as BDSM, bestiality and simulated rape – all of which can be produced with the consent of the participants.

Repeal all anti-discrimination THOUGHTCRIME legislation

Pass legislation ensuring free speech

There should be a legal standard set for the use of Free Speech, which in my view should allow all speech (typed or written) except that which is an incitement to violence or a treasonable offence.

In the case of speech which is clearly an unsupported misrepresentation, whether of individuals or groups of persons, this should be a matter for civil redress, not the criminal justice system.

This piece of legislation should be constitutionally safeguarded, superseding all other legislation, past or future, and could only be repealed by a specific further Act of Parliament, thereby ensuring public debate.

Section 63 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008

This law is unessessary – we already have laws to prevent people committing acts of sexual violence towards others.  This law prevents people making or viewing a record of acts which occur between consenting adults.
