WHEN retired police officer Harry Miller sent out a series of tweets in 2019 criticizing the idea of transgenderism, the last thing he expected was to be hunted down by the police and dragged to court for three years.
But that’s exactly what happened. In January 2019, police went to his place of work after an unidentified Twitter user reported him to the force and claimed they were there to “check his mind”.
They then criticized “non-criminal hate episodes” in his crime report, claiming that he was “showing hatred towards the transgender community”.
Now, after a Supreme Court battle in 2020 and then a further trip to Court of Appeal This year, Harry was exonerated.
Non-criminal hate case rulings are based on the College of Policy guidelines.
On Monday, Court of Appeal judges unanimously ruled against the guidance – saying it unlawfully violated Harry’s human right to free speech.
You don’t have to agree with his point of view. In fact, I think some of his tweets are unnecessarily vulgar and provocative.
He was poking the belly of the monster across the hall and was not surprised when it turned to bite him.
But anyone who doesn’t want to live in the censorship we’re rushing into at the speed of light should welcome this ruling with open arms. I’m sure.
The judges in the case said that hate crimes involving no crime create a “cold effect” – that they foster a culture of fear around open debate.
I would go even further, they are failures in an already bad justice system and they should be eliminated.
The problem with hate crimes that aren’t related to a crime is that – as the newspaper says – they’re not even serious enough to qualify as a criminal offence.
The ONLY criterion you must meet to record these meaningless charges against your name is to offend someone.
It doesn’t matter what your intentions are – all that matters is that someone ALLOWS you to be hostile based on characteristics like race, religion or sex identity.
And, like Harry’s case, you don’t even have the right to know who your accuser is. As a result, the offense is being taken advantage of by wet wokesters, whose only views differ from their own have caused the aneurysm.
The existence of this law is a godsend for them and a hell of a nightmare for those who find themselves treated like hateful preachers for expressing mildly controversial views.
And worse yet, earlier this year, a Freedom of Information request revealed that half of the police force in England and Wales was not even monitoring how effectively these incidents were recorded.
In essence, they’re wasting taxpayers’ money investigating and documenting things that aren’t criminal offenses and can’t even tell you what it all means on Earth.
It’s completely crazy. After this landmark ruling, I spoke to Harry.
He told me how the force had thrown MILLIONS of pounds out after him because of the tweets. How is it that his accuser has been allowed to remain concealed under the guise of anonymity (or cowardice) and thus be known only to him as “Mrs B”.
That cannot be true in a civil society. Harry’s victory has set a huge precedent for thousands of people who have committed non-criminal hate acts since they were introduced in 2014.
The risks to free speech posed by continuing to record them far outweigh any benefits. Free speech means that people will say things you don’t like – and only a naive narcissist would think that it is good for society to silence people in this way.
Mollie ‘more beautiful than ever’
MOLLY-MAE HAGUE, Love Islander and girlfriend of boxer Tommy Fury, says she feels “more beautiful than ever” after paying thousands of years for cosmetic procedures.
This included melting her lip and face fillers and taking a composite bonder out of her teeth.
It is impossible to avoid dependent influencers Instagram.
And the dramatic increase in young women wanting cosmetic procedures is a milestone for positive mental health that needs to be disseminated immediately.
That’s why I think Molly-Mae is incredibly brave to embrace her natural look.
God knows we need an antidote.
Should know who goes to sleep
The new season of The Weakest Link has just kicked off, with the dry comic book series Romesh Ranganathan taking on the infamous Anne Robinson.
It wouldn’t be a celebrity entertainment show if you didn’t have at least one no-brainer Z-list celebrity.
And that includes someone from The only way is Essex always a surefire way to fill that void.
Cue Gemma Collins, the “bigger than life” former Towie cast member, who appears in the new series and demonstrates her incredible lack of brain power in tomorrow’s episode.
She was asked by the host how many beds are in a twin hotel room. You would think, as the questions play out, it doesn’t get any easier than that.
But, alas, even this is too complicated a matter for the serial reality TV star – worth £2.7m – who has blamed her ignorance on ” only in suites and penthouses.”
All is well for some people. I guess sometimes it really pays to be thick.
Can you do better?
Complaint for Love Island
Regulator TELLY Ofcom has revealed that it has received a record number of complaints this year.
Love Island, featuring Shannon Singh and Good morning England are the most complained about programs.
There have been more than 150,000 complaints – more than double last year’s number. I have to say I find it very strange that people try to oppose shows they don’t like.
Mainly because it usually has nothing to do with shows that violate Ofcom rules and regulations, and anything to do with people just taking unnecessary offense when they hear or see something. that they don’t like.
I have a groundbreaking solution for a team of TV viewers who decide that 2021 is the year their crime threshold will drop dramatically – move on.
There are literally hundreds of channels available and countless buffet series on streaming platforms ready for viewers to watch at the click of a button.
If you don’t like something, why not try to relieve your sadness, pick up the remote and switch to something else?
Boris & co, you blue it
LORD FROST, the Prime Minister’s Brexit Secretary (known as Boris’s Brexit Brain) submitted his resignation over the weekend, citing his frustration with the “current direction” of Brexit.
Oh, and also the Government’s Covid restrictions, green agenda and sky-high tax rates, it’s burdening ordinary people and businesses alike.
It doesn’t bring me any pleasure to watch Goverment I voted for, run by the party I have supported since I was a teenager.
However, I can’t help but feel that’s exactly what this Government deserves.
Lord Frost speaks to little conservatives, like myself, across the country. Those who vote Tory because we want the government to stay out of our lives, tax us less, and not promote wild, untested policy agendas (*cough* net zero) ).
Sadly, those of us who voted green in 2019 and hoped for a proper Conservative government have failed miserably.
Instead, we ended up with a pathetic, hypocritical and incompetent Socialist Government.
Bring it to the middle classes
I MAY finally finish my introduction to intermediate classes this weekend – I went out and bought a REAL Christmas tree for the first time.
Growing up in the working class, my family never thought of getting one.
Why get a real tree that will last longer Christmas When can you get a reusable plastic one for less than half the price? Those fiery middle-class people, I think, just love to show off.
Forget the North/South divide – the real v tree debate is the nation’s real class rift.
And as someone who now describes himself as a middle-class snob, I can divulge that, yes: Real trees are definitely better.
