Just as one Englishman to another I thought I’d write you this little note to clear up the little misunderstanding that you seem to be labouring under. I hope you don’t mind my pointing this out, that’s something that we English tend not to do. We usually assume that everyone already gets and understands the rules that govern us all in common.
You’re quoted in this morning’s newspaper:
Radical preacher Anjem Choudray has criticised the magazine’s controversial cartoon front cover of the Prophet Mohammed as “an act of war” and warned there will be “repercussions”.
I’m sorry but this really isn’t an act of war. It’s called “free speech” and it’s something that we’re generally keen on. In fact, we English are so keen on this idea that we even extend the right to it to Frenchmen.
Get over it.
