Appearance by Idiots protested by other idiots

The Oxford Union had Drunkablog fave David Irving and British National Party leader Nick Griffin in last night to debate freedom of speech with apparently unnamed opponents, and things got rowdy. The BBC has video.

By the way, did you know the Euros don't even have a First Amendment? Instead they operate under some piece of collectivist crap called the European Convention on Human Rights, which, according to the BBC, states fearlessly that:

"Everyone has the right to freedom of expression."

But it adds that governments can restrict free speech for, among other reasons, in [sic] the interests of national security, preserving public safety and for the prevention of disorder or crime.

Kind of like the old Soviet constitution.
