The Law is an Ass

I missed this outrageous story about a draconian law being used to stifle freedom of speech in the UK – fortunately Yvonne had posted on it so I picked it up eventually. Isn’t it nice to know our elected leaders, the police and the judiciary are so terrified of the voice of peaceful protest that they will stoop to these extremes? I wonder if they will try to amend these laws to include blogs? Actually since the law prohibits unauthorised protests anywhere near Parliament (or the House of Shame as Private Eye refers to it) I wonder if you sat near Westminister with a WiFi laptop and blogged a protest would that get you arrested?
