British Leftists want to "eradicate" certain speech
Communities in Camden have experienced a surge in hate speech over the last two years, with Holocaust denial and Islamophobia promoted by speakers in the borough.

It has prompted the creation of a cross-party taskforce at Camden Council to tackle the problem, spearheaded by Cllr Tulip Siddiq, Labour’s cabinet member for communities and culture.

Last night, the council’s cabinet approved the taskforce’s plans to eradicate hate speech in Camden.

Cllr Siddiq, who is standing as Labour parliamentary candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn in the 2015 general election, said: “It is a fact that hate speech has risen in the last two years.

The incidents reported to the council include speakers in Camden promoting anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, religious speakers promoting misogyny and groups advocating Islamophobia.

After months of consultation with various groups, including local faith communities, think-tanks, the Home Office, police and other London councils, Cllr Siddiq said the taskforce had come up with a framework for dealing with hate speakers.

“From now on, if someone applies to speak in the borough, we will look at stuff they’ve said in the past and events they’ve spoken at,” said Cllr Siddiq.

So-called "hate speech" is usually nothing more than a differing opinion that is disliked by those complaining.
Blacks for example, will usually consider anything they dislike or disagree with to be (racist). Jews will label something as being (anti-Semitic) for the same reason. What they fail/refuse to realize is that (they) are the ones creating the hatred by their total lack of tolerance.

Truth and facts to a leftist is like sunlight to a vampire.

I take from this that if Camden dislikes something you have said in the past you won't be permitted to speak there.
That is very worrying.
Who exactly gets to make this decision that you might say something so repugnant people shouldn't even be allowed to hear it?

Leftists hate the world around them and want to change it: the people in it most particularly. Conservatives just want to be left alone to make their own decisions and follow their own values.

Yes 5:44, take the report at face value. You know that media reporting is never biased, and all in Camden and even all in Camden's elected local government act as one mind, so when 'Camden' dislikes something it sure ain't allowed!
