Do you endorse this kind of infringement on free speech?

Calling someone a crook, a fake lawyer, and racist in public isn't free speech goofy.   It's slander.

Nope it is expressing an opinion!

To be slander you have to not only have the intent to harm but the ability to do so!

That isn't the case in this case!

Again I ask, do you endorse this kind of infringement on free speech?

Apparently, the answer is yes!

Under Article 10 of the Human Rights Act 1998, “everyone has the right to freedom of expression” in the UK. But the law states that this freedom “may be subject to formalities, conditions, restrictions or penalties as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society”.

Those restrictions may be “in the interests of national security, territorial integrity or public safety, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, for the protection of the reputation or rights of others, for preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence, or for maintaining the authority and impartiality of the judiciary”.

So it says you have the right to free expression unless the government doesn't like your expression!

That means you have no right to free expression!

Do you endorse this kind of infringement on free speech?

England and Wales have relatively strict libel laws ("defamation" in Scotland) in that they are often considered pro plaintiff with the defendant asked to prove that they did not commit libel. Compensation awards for libel are also unlimited, in contrast to those for personal injury. Further controversy surrounds the libel laws with regard to costs. Whilst costs can be awarded the ability both to bring and to defend libel cases is often considered to be restricted to the wealthy. Conversely it is possible to initiate a "no win – no fee" case against a wealthy individual or organisation if the individual bringing the case has insignificant assets as even if the case is lost the wealthy individual or organisation are unable to recover their costs. Typically in such cases an out of court settlement is forced upon the wealthy individual or organisation.

You still have to prove damages!

No such proof is forthcoming!

Again, you are confusing civil action with criminal action!

According to English law it looks like the woman will have to prove that the target of her abuse is actually a crook, a fake lawyer and a racist like she was claiming.

You make sure and keep us updated on how this case turns out in the English courts d2.

Nope!

The accuser will have to prove her speech damaged his ability to earn income!

The accuser will have to prove he/she/it lost clients as a result of her speech!

Can he/she/it?

Also the he/she/it is a public person/activist therefore the standard increases!

Otherwise politicians could sue their opponents for expressing opinions about them!

Again you have confused civil with criminal!
