I read with interest an article last week in which Peter Beattie strongly supported
freedom of speech etc in relation to the “depictions” of Mohammed that have
caused such a stir. He also went on to say that “Nobody is off limits. I am not off limits. Jesus
Christ is not off limits.”
“I strongly support their right to publish these cartoons,” He added. Well, guess what…
On the very same day he uttered this rhubarb I recieve an email demanding I
remove certain “offensive” and “defamatory” material (artistic
“depictions” of Peter Beattie which he sees as offensive and illegal),
relating to Mr Beattie from my website, which he wants closed down
because of all the TRUTHS relating to him, Tony McGrady and the regime.
