I wonder?

What with all this monitoring of the internet, all this recording of emails:

A missionary couple from Britain have been sentenced to a year’s hard labour in an African prison for calling the Gambian President a madman.

David Fulton, a former army major, and his wife, Fiona, were convicted of sedition after sending critical e-mails about Yahya Jammeh, who seized power in the predominantly Muslim country in a bloodless coup in 1994.

We\’ve already had the reintroduction of sedition (more accurately, "thought crimes") into English law as a result of the European Arrest Warrant.

Is it going to be insult politicians now for you\’ll forever have to keep your peace?
