Bollocks to free speech
A girl was arrested for wearing her"Bollocks to Blair" T-shirt at the Midlands Game Fair last weekend. Charlotte Denis, 20, a gamekeeper from Gloucestershire, was stopped by police as she left the Countryside Alliance stand because of the "offensive" slogan. ..At this point, two officers marched Denis towards a police car.
Although the "Bollocks to Blair" slogan was in evidence all round the Game Fair, police maintained it was the first time they had seen it.
A tearful Denis was driven to a mobile police unit. "I asked the officers how they could arrest someone for wearing a T-shirt and they told me it was because it would offend a 70-80-year-old woman," she said.
Sexist, ageist comment there I think - the 70-80 year old woman who lives next door to me would use stronger language about Blair! By the way a "Game Fair" is a celebration of traditional country sports and the visitors would be overwhelmingly in favour of hunting, so Plod was being very stupid - next week they will notice a FCUK shirt for the first time I suppose. It gives me a chance to put a gratuitous picture from http://www.houndblair.com/ up!
