Teaser: suprise announcement

You might recall the fuss about the play Behzti, that was closed after demonstrations by Sikh extremists in Birmingham.

And you might recall the fuss about Jerry Springer The Opera, when campaigners from Christian Voice, an organisation that seeks to establish a Christian theocracy in Britain, picketed the BBC.

These were examples of serious attacks against freedom of expression in this country. And we have a surprise announcement, hopefully for Wednesday, about these two issues.

Watch this space.

Bezhti got closed down for reasons of "audience saftey" - so why not get the cast to do a film version and then sell the DVD on the internet?

A JS:TO short guest starring Abu Hamza as Jerry Springer and "Iron" Mike Tyson as Jesus?

The possibilities are endless!
