Take A Raincheck On This Folks!
On the comments on his site he has been advised to flee to the US and claim refugee status, others have said that the US should break off relations with the UK and other nonsense statements.
I would advise caution at this stage. I am sure I read somewhere that the bill had not been enacted and indeed a google search does not bring up any date for the enactment of this piece of legislation. As for the public order act, then whatever has been written would have to be really heavy stuff, not just the sort of things we bloggers write about. From a local government website I found this:
”The Bill is aiming to ensure freedom of speech and the right to practise religion without fear are protected by maintaining the right to engage in debate about religion and providing a clear difference between criticism of a religion and the criminal act of inciting hatred against person(s) on the basis of their religion.
The legislation will not prevent people telling jokes about or making fun of religions, causing offence to followers of a religion, trying to convert somebody to one’s own religion or urging followers of a different religion to cease practising theirs or expressing antipathy or dislike of particular religions or their followers.”
Let’s wait for more information on this one. I know that we all like to dummify our dhimmi politicians but England has a very long established justice system. Hell, they can't even deport convicted terrorists.
The first case under such a bill is unlikely to succeed in my view, they couldn't get Nick Griffin on racial hatred under the public order act for saying that Islam was a cruel and wicked religion - or words to that effect.
If anyone can find a source that states the enactment date of the race and religious hatred bill I would be grateful. In the meantime maybe it's a case of I don't want to believe this and it would be a good thing if I am right.
