WEMBLEY MATTERS: Outrage as Brent Council plans to charge for free speech

Wembley Matters blog reports on the latest stupidity from General Ann John and the Brent Labour troopers:

Outrage as Brent Council plan to charge citizens for free speech

I thought a speaker at the Willesden Area Consultative Forum might have been rather exaggerating when she likened living under Brent Council rule to  living in the Soviet Union but then we read of Brent’s plans to include community groups in plans to licence (and charge) distributors of free literature.  I wrote in my blog breaking news of the plans that the definition of ‘political purposes’ would be open to interpretation.

Campaigns around cuts and libraries etc are ‘political’ but not representing a political party. It now appears that Brent’s interpretation is that exempt activities are those of political parties campaigning at election time.

Read rest here.
