    It's an interesting one. This chancer pushes the envelope of free speech very far and the social media platforms have every right to pull his conspiracy loonball rubbish. Problem is this feeds the conspiracy that he has something the state wants to suppress.

    Facebook et al need to be very clear why they are limiting his lucrative free ride

    If it was just rhetoric there wouldn't be a problem. His freedom to lie in an interesting discussion

    The just is out on whether Jones is a brilliant businessman exploiting the bewildered or one of the bewildered.

    Most of this bottle of smoke is based on the ridiculous idea that "freedom of speech" means that Jones somehow has a right to use the public platforms provided by the social media providers.

    He doesn't.
    As long as that works both ways, then that's fine. But it doesn't now does it. Because the law is inaccessible to Joe Soap because of cost, bias and corruption.
