  • This guy should be released. He seems like a grade-A creep. And he shouldn’t be imprisoned. Today him, tomorrow you. The winds that blow governments around change and what’s Decent and Upstanding today becomes Treason tomorrow. So no one should be jailed by a government for speaking freely. Even if it’s rubbish they’re speaking.
