We do not really have unrestricted freedom of the press and in UK we have Leveson as an additional restriction along with unwritten codes covering gypsies, Muslims, gay people and other vociferous minorities about what is “appropriate”.
People cannot commit libel, reveal state secrets, promulgate “hate speech” , breach laws on obscenity or engage in Holocaust denial.
Hitler, as Dr Alf knows, is still a taboo subject in many countries, and in Germany, you cannot even get a copy of Mein Kamf although you can in other EU countries including the UK.
Saying that Hitler was “back” was to stir up the folk memory of that terrible man and inject fear into the minds of his Twitter readers and it was therefore more than satire
