Most of our readers are familiar with Pat Condell, the English comedian whose scathing videos circulate virally on the internet. In them he denounces Islam, Multiculturalism, Political Correctness, and the British Labour government, among other things, with characteristically blunt humor.
YouTube censors Pat Condell’s latest video
Welcome to Saudi Britain
The most urgent message in his video is this: If you live in Britain please sign this petition against the creeping poison of sharia law before October 4th when it closes.
Apparently YouTube, which has had some challenges with Turkey and Pakistan, have decided that it is easier to block ‘problematic’ content themselves than standing up for freedom and have Pakistani Internet operators wreak havoc on them.
We are still waiting for the day when big media realize they have a responsibility to stand up for freedom of expression.
In his latest video, Pat Condell sure manages to step on some toes. But that is well deserved, for what happens is serious and what he has to say is important. Too important to censor, so here is a transcript of the start of the video:

You may remember that a couple of weeks ago, it was revealed that Sharia courts are now operating here in Britain, with the full backing of the law, even though they discriminate against women as a matter of cause.
And what this means is that those women who are intimidated into using these courts, as some of them will be, and everyone knows it, they will now find that they have the full weight of the British legal system lined up against them, alongside the patriarchal bigotry in their own communities.
Those women who are cheated out of their just entitlements in these places, as some already have been, will find that they have no recourse to the real law to put things right. In other words, we are now accommodating Saudi Arabian legal principles here in Britain.
