UK: 82 year old man thrown out of conference and arrested

An 82 year old member of the british labour party was thrown out of the annual conference for shouting the word "Nonsense" as Jack Straw was making a speech about the governments policy in Iraq.

This alone would be enough but the Gentleman was then arrested under anti terrorism laws !

The gentleman has been a loyal member of the Labour party longer then Mr Blair has been alive and this is how they repay that loyalty !

Is there no boundry when it comes to shutting up dissent ?

Thanks for your comments guys

It seems that a terrorist is someone that disagrees !

This has now turned into a big issue over here , even TB has had to say sorry to him

the Labour party over here was built out of dissent and there are dozens of moments i can remember where the speaker has been live on TV arguing with members of the audience

The gentleman came here to get away from Nazi germany !

before tony blair starts telling us all he is defending freedom of speech in Iraq , he should be trying to defend freedom of speech not only in his own country but in his own party

It certainly could have been a kick in the teeth for freedom of speech G , but as these things often do , it has backfired on them , and the old man has had the pleasure of being on TV all day attacking them for stopping dissent
