THE dream of never being disagreed with came a step closer last night.
Experts said new press regulations could mean that within three years having to defend your opinions will seem as outmoded as basing your opinions on some form of evidence.
Julian Cook, an opinions analyst, said: “The statutory royal charter on who can say what will make the settling of arguments an awful lot more efficient.”
Tom Logan, from Hatfield, said: “Freedom of speech is very important to me because I’m always right.
“I’m relieved that we now have a fair and reasonable way of regulating people who are wrong.”
Cook added: “Initially, the extent to which people will be able to disagree with you will depend on what your opinions are and who is in power at the time.
“Though once this thing really beds in you won’t see power changing hands all that often.
“It does mean that if you have the wrong opinions you will end up being disagreed with a lot. At which point we think it would be easier to just change your opinions to the right ones.
“And once everyone has the same opinion about everything we will all live happily ever after.
