“I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”

He also shared a quote attributed to Sir Winston Churchill which said: “Some people’s idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.”

He later labelled the Duchess of Sussex’s comments as “contemptible”.
