Folk complained that the government had the fortnight's recess for Christmas when the Brexit debate was ongoing. Well at least we had a fortnight when Brexit was barely mentioned - Gatwick with its drone scares more or less took over.
But of course it couldn't last. Today the whole shebang was headline news again. This time it was mainly because of the protesters outside the
Palace of Westminster - the abusive language and the argument on whether or not the protesters had abused the Public Order Act.
I have no wish to get involved. At my age I really don't care which way things go (yes, I know that is a selfish view taking into consideration my grandchildren and great grandchildren ) I just want it all to be over and done with so that we can all get back to normal.
But I couldn't help thinking this morning as I saw the Protesters and the Politicians on Breakfast television that to some extent the pot is calling the kettle black. These days when I see Prime Minister's Question Time or debates in the House the abuse being hurled from one side to the other, the mayhem constantly caused so that really no sensible debate can be taking place, I cannot but despair of the way our country is moving towards
something I don't like. Am I right or is the right for Free Speech paramount above all else?
