Question Time
Posted Friday, 13 March 2009 at 18:11

It was Dimbleby on Question Time, about 28 mins in. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00j4cjh/Question_Time_12_03_2009/

 

I’m impressed. I only tabled the EDM late yesterday afternoon. QT must have some pretty smart researchers!

 

I wrote my blog last night when I got in because today I had to travel to Lincoln to make a speech. Having not got to bed until nearly 2, I really didn’t expect the phone to start ringing at 6.30am as a result of an EDM upon which the ink hadn’t yet dried!

 

I loved the pre-record for the overseas forces radio. I haven’t done that before.

 

I have been asked a number of times today why I tabled the EDM and am I scared that I may come to harm as a result?

 

For goodness sake!

 

Is that why we have a Government which operates in a vacuum because it’s too scared to take a position on an issue which sits at the core of the Government's first and most responsible duty to it’s people, to keep them safe? Where is the courage and leadership?

 

I tabled the EDM because we need the debate. What do we tolerate? Can anyone say anything on a placard or in a cartoon? Where do the boundaries of free speech begin and end and is the playing field equal for all of any faith or principle?

 

When do the Police move in and what is the appropriate time to say ‘enough’. That’s why I tabled the EDM because no where in Government can I hear anyone asking those vital questions and this incident took place four days ago.
