Hackney rediscovers free speech?

Dave Hill has the latest on the Ian Sinclair saga.

This is the case of the author banned from launching his book about Hackney in Hackney libraries because of his scepticism about the benefits of the 2012 Olympics for the borough.

As the only Olympic venue for Hackney was to be the media centre, and that now turns out to be under threat, Sinclair is not alone in his views.

Anyway, after Labour Hackney disgracefully banned him, Lib Dem Islington stepped in , and made it clear he’d be welcome here.

Now it seems Hackney have been shamed into backing down.
