I reject cultural relativism and uphold unconditional freedom of expression (and the rest of the manifesto). Consequently I\'ve had a somewhat interesting time. I trod on the toes of a high-level Catholic dinosaur and suffered for it. I was defending Rushdie at the time. The whole thing finally went to the Minister and (I guess) because of the affiliations of the Blairs it was all pushed under the carpet. The fact that my ancestors were socialists and atheists back into the C19th before there was a Labour Party might have come into it: I do not think I was wanted in ever-so religious New Labour. The whole business of the religious assuming and exercising power over those who incur their displeasure is abominable with no place in C21st Britain. It angers me that people who make a simple decision to change their views have to be cautious about saying so. I think we have to band together and as a feminist and a female with Marxist roots I tend to identify with Maryam!
