Freedom to express anti-establishment views is steadily being restricted. Even the police are starting to say so.

War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.

The new "Extremist" laws is another nail in the coffin of freedom of expression. Person A can't say he doesn't like certain things about Person B without being arrested.

Of course, staying in the EU will only lead to less and less Freedom whilst we obey our corporate elite overlords.

I've heard so many scare stories about people in your country who get arrested when they say something regarded as hateful. I had hoped it was exaggeration but sadly it does seem that you can be arrested if you have the "wrong" opinion about something. Look at that.
