The Commission has already backed down over one proposal that could have classed offensive dinner table comments made in private as hate crimes.

This scares the shit out of me. I know America has less of a slippery slope because we have the first amendment, but god I hate that this is even a thing that has been considered.

Anyway, it's about time the judicial branch of the government put on their big boy/girl pants and started reigning these idiot wizards in. May the long arm of the law slap them down hard and fast.

That's already become the law in Scotland. Private remarks made in your own home can be hate crimes now. I expect a wave of horrific teenagers reporting their mothers to the police for not buying them a binder.

It was massively unpopular but they passed the bill anyway. I guess part of it is that the SNP have no credible opposition in Scotland so even with an election coming up they can do what they like. But countries all over the world (or just the Western world?) are instigating unpopular and authoritarian Woke-influenced laws, so whatever is going on, it's not just a Scottish problem. I don't want to even speculate, it's beyond me.
