Brexit views are be­ing sti­fled

Irish Independent - - Letters & Editorial Comment -

■ The Brexit de­bate has taken on some wor­ry­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics.

I think Brexit is a mis­take and is go­ing to do ma­jor dam­age to Ire­land.

In ad­di­tion to writ­ing to the pa­pers I get in­volved in in­ter­net dis­cus­sions ex­press­ing th­ese opin­ions.

On Ir­ish in­ter­net sites ex­press­ing opin­ions that are crit­i­cal of Brexit or ques­tion­ing the va­lid­ity of the ‘soft’ Bor­der will get you banned.

In in­ter­net dis­cus­sions in some of the pro-Brexit Lon­don news­pa­per sites, the pro­ce­dure is much more dras­tic.

Posts that are favourable to the EU or re­flect an Ir­ish out­look are just deleted in front of your eyes.

Free­dom of ex­pres­sion, how are you.
