Rowan Atkinson Argues Against the “Culture of Censoriousness”

Roan Atkinson is calling to repeal Section 5 of the Public Order Act, which bans any word or phrase that could be inferred as insulting. Atkinson stated that “If we want a robust society, we need more robust dialogue and that must include the right to insult or to offend. Because, as someone once said, the freedom to be inoffensive is no freedom at all.”
