Does Britain need our own "First Amendment?"

The First amendment to the US constitution guarantees freedom of speech. Britain has never had such a provision in our unwritten constitution or written laws and for centuries nobody thought we needed one. The events of the past twenty years - and this month - are making me think that perhaps we do.

So do I, in fact it is the 6th and final demand of the Harrogate agenda.

6. A constitutional convention:
Parliament, once members of the executive are excluded, must host a constitutional convention to draw up a definitive codified constitution for the peoples of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It shall recognise their sovereign status and their inherent, inalienable rights and which shall be subject to their approval.
