It certainly looks like Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour Party is on course for a large majority at the General Election. What will this mean for free speech?
The Free Speech Union, which I founded in 2020, is a non-partisan organisation and will defend its members who get into trouble for exercising their right to free speech regardless of their political views, provided they stay within the law.
