Sedition laws on their way out

On Tuesday Parliament voted unanimously to send a bill to repeal sedition laws to select committee. This is a great victory for free speech. Congratulations to No Right Turn for his work on the issue. NZ First, although voting for it on the first reading, is worried about the effect the law will have in allowing islamic fundamentalist terrorists to spread their message of hate here. In my opinion everyone, even Islamic fundamentalists have a right to free speech. This right should stop when it comes to encouraging people to kill others, but we already have laws against inciting to murder.
