Culture Clash

Nick Griffin and his henchman have been found innocent of charges brought against them of inciting racial hatred. This followed an undercover BBC investigation. (here)

Given their defence, that they were attacking Islam as a fanatical culture rather than race of skin colour (he even use the Koran as
evidence); I am not surprised that he won his case.

Two points strike me here:

1. How long until the government changes the law to cover 'cultural' as well as racial discrimination?

A long time I hope, as this would be a massive restriction on free speech.

2. So many of the follow-up cases to TV undercover investigations fail. Clearly they have sought shock value over fact. The recent football bribes being another case of this. How long until the Police start to sue TV Companies for wasting their time?

UPDATE: For the record it took Peter Hain, (surprise eh!), two hours and 1o minutes to suggest new laws were needed to prevent the CPS from looking silly in court again.

Baloney. How long before we drop the entire pointless state mind control and make up out own minds . Cultures are not all of equal value . I beg leave to disapprove of a Nazi Party member before I have gone to tea and heard his sad story of childhood misery.
Many evils stem from this cultural relativism . It came from the Liberal educational establishment originally and has since been used to justify one absurdity after another.

I do not agree.
You are wrong

Boo Hisss !!

I am against cultural relativism; that is the point!

Of course there is a difference between racial and religious incitement, they should have realised after the first trial. What a waste of money.

A law to outlaw 'cultural discrimination'?

What a truly frightening thought. Not far-fetched though, knowing this Government. Let's just hope none of them read your post.

A properly constituted jury, in full possession of all the admissible evidence, having heard all the submissions, applying the existing law, found them not guilty. That is obviously not enough for our meddling thought-policing Government.

There's many a trial that gets kicked out because of a low likelihood of conviction. With these inciting racial hatred trials the CPS seems willing to give any long-shot a whirl provided the defendants are white.

Anyway, let's keep fighting Labour.
