From home schooling to free speech on the internet, ministers keep turning good principles into bad law.
This legislation worries both Toby Young and I. But I believe it can ensure we protect free speech whilst minimising harm.
It is hard to see how he will manage to reconcile freedom of speech on the internet with the requirement to prevent legal but harmful content.
The Online Safety Bill is a welcome start but given the huge range of issues it covers, is it too unwieldy?
Despite ministers’ reassurances and some improvements, the Bill’s safeguards for free speech online are insufficient.
