Yes. Such atrocities must be condemned outright. It was very interesting that a person who tweeted a particular message on the day after the attack and was taken in by the police. I do not believe freedom of speech is unfettered. We need to be careful, respectful and tolerant but that must be the case on both sides. The latter is not the case at present. I advise Members to go on Twitter and see what people are saying about Senator Mullen and me. I have been through this before and I am aware that one must ignore what is being said and carry on.
