The right to it must be championed even when – no: especially when – remarks are made that we find reprehensible.

Flick Drummond: Putting new diverse statues near to those of old slavers. And other ways of sharing our journey.
The Mayor of London is wrong to seek to erase our common history rather than contribute to it in new ways.
It is also politically shrewd – showing free market radicalism and compassion for the poor.
The former may have won a battle, but the latter will win the war. Diverse, inclusive, victimhood culture is the future.
Neil O’Brien: Stormzy, “niggas”, “bitches” – and scholarships. Do we really want to fund racial groups?
Collecting statistics on people’s self-identified racial background is one thing. Having ringfenced funding for one racial group is quite another.
Rebecca Lowe: Nationalisation. Ask not only: would the state do it better? But also – should it be involved at all?
It was darkly funny to see Labour MPs claiming that nationalisation could fix signals failures when track infrastructure is owned and controlled by the state.
How the far left uses a feedback loop to shut down people in the short term – and ideas in the long.
But Corbyn is so third-rate he helps to keep her in power, and both of them epitomise a wider decline in political speech.
She makes this case in her first publication, but is far too anxious never to cause anyone in the educational establishment any offence.
The Scottish Conservative leader argues the SNP is living out some of the great author’s warnings.
A fundamental clash between cosmopolitanism and communitarianism is taking place – and it cuts across Left and Right.
I see you: the trade union boss who makes a hell of that daily commute. I know you: the apparatchik who’d sell her “principles” for a piece of dead ermine to wrap around her throat.
With no one to keep us on our toes, we’d become factional, complacent and, in time, sleazy. And what of those voters who believe in what Labour used to stand for?
Some British socialists are so allergic to their own country that they will take up the cause of republican bombers and jihadi murderers.
For me, the concept of the “freeborn Englishman” is fundamental. These liberties are expressed through Parliament and institutions.
