We are all free to voice an opinion?

I understand that Norman Baker MP has complained to local papers and radio stations because they have given air time and column inches to Maria Caulfield, the prospective Conservative Candidate for Lewes. His grounds for these complaints?

“She is not a sitting MP”.

Since when did anyone need the permission of Mr Baker to voice an opinion that is not in agreement with his or perhaps he’s just running scared of an opponent who is a breath of fresh air and who is working hard in the constituency.

Maybe Mr Baker’s fiefdom is about to tumble and he can see the writing on the wall even if he doesn’t want to see it in the papers?
