Actually, they aren't "off the hook" just yet, excuse me jumping to conclusions, but it does look likely.
When you talk about the truth, lets be honest, the truth is relative. You can twist it to an extraordinary degree!
When I asked a kid to leave the store when I was duty manager, I laughed and called him a loser, to which I recieved a torrent of abuse. When my boss proceeded with police action, he told me to not mention calling him a loser, and to deny that I provocated him in any way. Why? Because calling him a loser, in his opinion, was a fact, not a slur. Why should that be provocation? The lad now has a criminal record for 2 years for the anti social disturbance.
A bit uncomfortable for me to be honest, but there we go.
So, in regards to the BNP, they do exactly that - tell it like it is, in their opinion. The "truth" no less .
50:50 There were two days in a row when the defence teams in these cases were using virtually identical arguements to defend their respective clients. I only link Hamaz and Griffin w.r.t to charges on 'race hate'. The other charges hamza face do not map across....
Thinking about from a legal perspective and being an arrse piont picker, I am not sure Jews are considered a distinct racial group therefore I'm confused about hamza being on charges of racial rather than religous hatred. Just a thought?1
I do hope not....you and I have been subsidizing the Egyptian con artist since he landed - disability allowance from the DSS plus various other benefits for his extensive personal entourage.... .... I was rather hoping our limp-wristed Gubmint had a plane ticket with his name on it.....
All it needed was two BNP sympathisers on the jury to prevent a conviction. Normally 10-2 is allowed, but one juror was ill, so 10-1 was required. 4 counts not guilty, on the rest the jury did not return a verdict.
Eurgh, ugly in mindset, ugly by nature. What a big joke. Looking at them who can't believe there is a gram's worth of commonsense in the lot of them. Agreed LB, but I hope this isn't the end of what could have been a way of shafting them proper.
ITV News just reported that Griffin and Collett are celebrating their win..... at the local curry house Coat's on.
Defining racist incidents
All forces have now adopted the proposed definition of a racist incident, which is: âa racist incident is any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other personâ.
