‘Please don’t jail me for seven years’, terrified theatre director pleads

“The extremist end of Islam – the fanatics who wanted Salman Rushdie killed, and who … want their beliefs to be immune from criticism of any sort – will not be appeased by it.

Another silly article on the religious hatred bill, this time by theatre director Nicholas Hytner.
