Probably the most important thing we can do is to keep satirising, and keep puncturing the pomposity of people and institutions. No exemptions, no special cases. These are challenging times, and if we bow our heads and hold our tongues in the name of safety, we shall lose everything. Some politicians, and Nigel Farage has predictably but shamefully done it already, will imply that the muslim populations in our countries are the enemy within. To be muslim is not synonymous with being a terrorist.
