government response details
Freedom of speech, freedom of worship, democracy, the rule of law, and equal rights define us as a society. The Government is committed to upholding free speech, and legislation is already in place to protect these fundamental rights. However, this freedom cannot be an excuse to cause harm or spread hatred. UK legislation values free speech and enables people who wish to engage in debate to do so - regardless of whether others agree with the views which are being expressed. Everyone has a right to freedom of expression under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This is a qualified right however, which means that it can be restricted for certain purposes to the extent necessary in a democratic society. The Home Office is unable to comment on individual cases. On the whole the Government takes a robust stance against individuals whose presence in this country might not be conducive to the public good. Any individual whose presence in the UK is deemed not conducive to the public good will be refused entry, on a case-by-case basis.Home Office
