Strange, that England, land of a Billion Cameras, wouldnt have had something on the books.....
But I read the link provided, and they already have laws, in place.
Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994
Malicious Communications Act 1998/Telecommunications Act 1984
Communications Act 2003 - Section 127

So the UK, passed a law, that allows other people to get arrested if you are "offended" by their speech?
Is this what I'm reading?

I wonder if these laws came into existence when immigrants who were insulted and did not have the personal control not to start a fight over it? I could see this being implemented when Muslims get insulted and riot about some religious insult?
just a thought.....

This law needs to be scrapped because it has become a tool of selective persecution.
