Rowan Atkinson in Johnny English - Man lebt nur dreimal (2018)

He publicly opposed the British Labour government's plans in 2004 to introduce new legislation on incitement to religious hatred, arguing that it would undermine free speech and thought (even citing the possible development of mind-reading technology), and that such measures would make political satire - which he considers seminal in a democracy - unworkable.
