What New Labour did for free speech

Taking the Temperature

Index takes a critical look at the health of free speech in the UK on New Labour's tenth birthday in power. New restrictions on what you can say -- and where you can say it -- mean we have to mind our language more than we used to. Has the UK become a less tolerant society? How much has been sacrificed in the name of national security? Leading commentators examine the defining influences of the decade on free speech in the UK and assess how far new Labour has delivered on its promises to introduce more open government.

Includes articles by: Alistair Beaton; A C Grayling; Peter Wright; A L Kennedy; Maureen Freely; Roman Shleinov and more.
