So if "Offence is always taken, not given" as the Senator states, why not repeal the libel laws as well? Let anyone say anything about anyone or anything. By his standards, if I were to refer to him as "a dangerously bigotted senile moron" (which would be libelous if I were to do so), he should have no recourse.

After all, what is good for the goose...

  1. If I met this bloke, I'd ask him "Would I be in trouble for what I think or only for what I say?"
    And if he answers "Only what you say, why?

    I'd reply "Good, 'cos I think you're a fucking moron"
