The Huffington Post UK's Politics editor Mehdi Hasan was a panellist on this debate at the London School of Economics with Times journalist David Aaronovitch about whether the recent rulings against what people have said on twitter was an infringement on our freedom of speech and the right to offend and be offended.

In the debate Aaronovitch speaks of his reluctance to allow the fact that others may be offended to curb what people can and cannot say, while Mehdi points out the hypocrisy in any conversation about the right to offend someone else.
