    But that is what is at stake is that an independent organisation should be allowed to invite anyone they wish to speak at one of their events. I find Irving as offensive as anyone else but i defend his right to freedom of speech and association unless he is doing something illegal and he is not (at least not in the UK). Freedom of Speech is a very important concept in the UK to get it people died or were transported to Australia, we will not give it up easily, even if it means putting up with the likes of Irving.
