Timothy Garton Ash is a University of Oxford Professor, Guardian columnist and author of nine books of political writing. Free Speech: Ten Principles For a Connected World, argues that the way to achieve combined freedom and diversity is to have more and better freedom of speech, using as examples China’s Orwellian censorship, Charlie Hebdo and Nigella Lawson’s court case to propose a framework for civilised conflict in a world where we are all becoming neighbours.
