Cretinous Charles Clarke (RealAudio) is on the Today programme as I type, explaining how laws against 'glorification of terrorism' would have enabled prosecution of the other Friday's placard-holders.
You hypocrite. There were enough incitements and threats on those placards to get all their holders arrested. Only the political will to enforce the existing law was lacking. As it still will be. For some people. Native Brits with such placards would have been down the nick before you could say 'Nick Griffin'.
This Government seems to operate by an iron rule.
People aren't obeying existing laws ? Pass some more.
Let's go to work before my blood pressure exceeds government recommended limits.
