UK Censorship

Groucho Marx got it right when playing dictator Rufus T Firefly in Duck Soup. He clearly had Tony Blair and Gordon Brown in mind

If any form of pleasure is exhibited,
Report to me and it will be prohibited.
I'll put my foot down. So shall it be!
This is the land of the free!

Freedoms are eroding rapidly in the UK. This section covers UK censorship news particularly  where it is attributed to UK government and politicians.
