Rowan Atkinson: In Defence of Free Speech, 2012

Rowan Atkinson is one of the world's favourite comedians. He is also a serious intellect and a libertarian (more so than most of those who presume to govern us). This speech by Rowan Atkinson at the launch event of the "Defend Free Speech" campaign in Parliament in 2012 should be heard by every politician, journalist and campaigner before they start calling for laws to silence those they regard as ‘extremists’.
