I’m doing some guest-blogging at Hot Air for a few days while Ed Morrissey is out of the country for a few days and my first post this afternoon involves one of the silliest and most-frustrating stories I’ve seen all week.

Apparently, the Brits have just a tiny problem with the concept of free speech, or at least with free performance of a classic disco song. Here’s the opening:

Just when you think the world can’t get any more crazy, it pulls over to a siding and hooks another car on the Crazy Train. This past Sunday, police in Britain actually arrested a keytarist named Simon Ledger for singing Carl Douglas’ “Kung Fu Fighting”.

No, that’s not a joke. Go on over and read the whole thing. Also, take a look at Ezra Levant’s interview with the keytarist who, I want to note, now has the disgusting tag of “racist” hung around his neck for no good reason at all.

Ezra, no stranger to being falsely tagged as a racist, has his own show on Canada’s only conservative television network. I like what he’s done with it so far.

    In a just society, playing the keytar might be enough to get you arrested….

    I'm guessing a song about shooting colonists in New York would have been OK.
