Twitter snowflakes taking offence over nothing, no change there then!


Source maybe erring to the right however the facts of the matter seem to stack up.....

Arron Banks's comments are hardly nothing.

I'm not sure I understand the joke, to be honest.

I mean, I could tweet "Fat Bastards like Arron Banks die of heart disease all the time". It would be true, but it wouldn't really be funny.

I'm 100% for freedom of expression, especially when it comes to humour - "In a free society, the right to offend is far more important than any right not to be offended" (Rowan Atkinson, I believe) - but if you tweet an offensive 'joke' that has no humour value whatsoever, you just look like either a moron or a sociopath.

I agree with Tony. Yes it is a very poor taste 'joke', if you can even call it a that - as it's not even in the slightest bit funny.

Freedom of expression is important so long as it's not inciting hatred or violence - which to be fair, it isn't.

Now, if I may use my freedom of expression:- Arron Banks - you are a dick!
