Sign the English Libel Law Petition now

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on January 27, 2010

I just signed myself and left the following message to accompany my signature:

Freedom of speech is sacred; it is an inalienable human right and the cornerstone of any democratic society. It cannot be allowed to be silenced by the rich and powerful, helped by a system which puts undue burden on the defendant. The Davids of this world ought to have the right to stand up to the Goliaths, and that is why I support this petition to reform the English libel laws, so that the little guy may not have to face financial ruin for summoning the courage to speak the truth. England has nothing to loose, and everything to gain by updating its libel laws, so that the charlatans and the self deluded may have a harder time misinforming its citizens.

The religious references were included on purpose, since most politicians seem to be religious, and I figured those words would be understood best (assuming they get to read these messages). Don’t fear, I haven’t turned religious! Please do the same and sign the petition here. Let us help  Simon Singh do the impossible and tame the beast that is English libel law.
