Archived Stop Press article

John Briggs of Loughborough was fined £5000 yesterday at Loughborough Magistrates' Court. He was charged under the new EU directive to counter racicm, xenophobia and rationalism.

Mr.Briggs claimed that it was ridiculous to be allowed to say that Stalin never hurt a fly but not to be able to say that global warming was not mainly caused by man.

The magistrate, Ms.Djxeblinski, dismissed this argument as silly and counter to the European spirit.
