Democracy and Disobedience has to be about non-violent civil disobedience. I find Honderich unreadable but would defend his right to say what he (apparently) did.

"Why should there be one law for, dare one say, Oxford Professors of Jurisprudence, and another for the dimwits of the BNP or the SWP or the Muslim Alliance or whatever?"

Good question. My provisional answer is that the incitement laws should apply equally to both.

Thanks, 'Jayanne', both for your support, and for your warning concerning Honderich's writing style, although I must confess that he is fairly low-down on my reading list!

Also, responding to your comment allows me the opportunity to apologise for mis-spelling 'Prof.' Gardner's name throughout my post.
