Our freedoms have been lost
REGARDING Martin Tideswell's 'Personally Speaking' article on the BNP's Michael Coleman headlined: 'His views are bizarre but it was wrong to prosecute BNP leader' (Sentinel, October 2).
The only thing I agree with is his comments about our ability to be tolerant and a safe haven for the persecuted and peoples of other races, cultures and creeds.
The tolerance is forced upon us by the powers that now be. In respect of democracy and a free country, this seems something I remember in a distant past.
As in the case of Michael Coleman, if you speak out then expect to be shot down.

Those shooting you down don't necessarily believe you to be wrong but feel that they need to be politically correct.
Unfortunately, the Government, police chiefs and the like are now populated by the 'knee-jerkers' who are 'brain washed' in this way.
I do not agree with extreme beliefs but I do believe the hard-won freedoms secured by our forefathers in two World Wars have been taken away.
