Freedom of speech no longer exists in Britain. The land that gave the world the Magna Carta, the Levellers, and John Stuart Mill—three of the key foundation stones of the modern conception of liberty—is now arresting and even jailing people simply for speaking their minds.
From the Internet to the press to the public square, Brits' speech is being policed and punished

This is quite surprising for me, an old fan of the British humor. Nowadays it seems the Monty Python would spend most of their profits to defend themselves in courts.
