Cambridge Union has disgracefully invited proud antisemite Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, to give a speech at 18:30 on Sunday. It is unforgivable that Cambridge Union at the University of Cambridge, one of Britain’s most prestigious educational institutions, is rolling out the red carpet for this self-confessed and unrepentant antisemite, and …

OK, so you say the Malaysian Prime Minister is antisemitic. I want to hear it from his own mouth so I can make my own decision. I don't want him shut down. How will that help me understand his warped sense of reality better? How will I be able to argue against his ideas if I don't hear them? I want to see his blind prejudices exposed and him humiliated in public if he is indeed antisemitic. You won't need to bother trying to censor him next time, he won't want to come back. #Israell #Jewhatred #antisemitism #malaysia #cambridgeunion

Nigel Farage said the comic's remarks on BBC Radio 4 comedy show, Heresy, were an "incitement to violence".

Jo Brand should NOT be facing a police enquiry, any more than Count Dankula or Sargon of Aakard or any other edgy comedian. There should be a very high bar before the law should get involved with "incitement to violence" charges. How about the "Brandenburg Test" as used in the US in incitement cases? (no relation or pun intended)

(paraphrasing) No-one should be considered criminally inciting violence unless:

Their speech is "directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action" and Their speech is "likely to incite or produce such action" Jo Brand is in my opinion a deeply un-funny comedian who relentlessly panders to her woke fan-base, but Jo Brand was not hoping that someone would actually throw battery acid in the face of #Brexit supporting politicians. That was her fantasy. A joke. An over-statement for comic effect. The problem for society and #freespeech comes when some fuckwit does actually do that violent thing that was alluded to in the joke. Should society's response be to try and prevent ANY edgy comment or joke or violent fantasy being uttered JUST IN CASE some nutjob uses it as a template for their action? NO IT SHOULD NOT. Such an extreme risk averse society would not be one that I and most #Gab users would wish to live in. UK politicians need to grow a pair and stick up for this most fundamental of our human rights. If they do not, our country will become a suffocating police state devoid of humour and original ideas.

The real-life effect of the Tory leadership candidate’s column describing women wearing the burqa as “letter boxes” and “bank robbers”.

I think we are beginning to see the first cases of "BDS - Boris Derangement Syndrome" Apparently a bad orange man released a related strain (TDS) into the British air earlier this month when he evaded bio security and entered the county to visit the Queen. Bloody great isn't it!! #BorisJohnson #ToryParty #Brexit #Trump

What's this? Brexiteer young people? I was told they were all grey and would die our before we left the EU and that's why another referendum would go the other way.

The Queen says at a state banquet that the alliance has ensured "safety and prosperity" for decades.

Welcome Mr President from Wales. I expect #Plaid and #Labourparty lefties will spend the next few days virtue signalling each other into oblivion. #Trumpvisit

It’s reassuring to know that our allure doesn’t fade with age, says Mariella, and while it may actually be the opposite, it’s hard to know what’s prompted this epidemic of lust

Take it as a compliment and tell them loudly to fuck off if they touch you. Oh, and stop writing self-serving fantasy letters to the #Guardian.

Dear old Rory Stewart. He's either amazingly naive or more full of BS than a stud farm. He thinks you can get a load of clever people together to sort out the solution to Brexit, then the rest of the country will magically go along with it. Rory, this is the UK, not a desert Loya jirga in the Afghanistan desert. It's a western democracy not a load of armed warlords in a tent. The people you choose to do the thinking on #Brexit will determine the outcome. Nothing will change, and you are left with the same problem five weeks down the line. The only way to settle such a big question as our national sovereignty is an election on that specific issue. Let's call it a #referendum. Well fuck me! we've had one and the leavers won. So let's do it! This interview explains for me why since Rory was elected to Parliament 9 years ago he has failed to shine in the Tory party as many expected. He's devoid of clearly articulated conservative principles. He's a "big tent" (literally in his case) Conservative and that just isn't what's needed now. #ConservativeParty #Toryleadership
