Free speech campaign on Public Order Act and insults

17 May 2012 Last updated at 12:09 BST

Free speech campaigners are calling on the government to change a law which bans "insulting words and behaviour" claiming the Public Order Act is over-used.

Political insults: Blair, Cable, Watson, Trumpington and Farage
