Nigel Farage's Brexit Party has chosen a candidate for the European elections who thinks people should be free to watch child pornography and terror videos online. "Free speech" fanatic Claire Fox told the Telegraph: "I do not want to give the state and the authorities the right to ban things on the internet - no ifs." When questioned, she said this included child abuse and terrorism videos, even though she felt they were "vile" and "illegal." She claimed: "This is not about defending child porn, right, this is about fighting censorship and fighting for free speech. [...] She also said: "Actually most child porn is not child porn because it's simulated - I don't want to go into the details of that."
