Scot Speech To Be Controlled Everywhere.
Scots who are recorded making threatening remarks anywhere in the world could be hunted down like sex offenders....
The Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Bill is currently separated into two parts, with the second offence - making threatening communications - currently restricted to religious hatred.
However, the first part - offensive behaviour at football - also covers offensive remarks on someone's social or cultural group, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origins, sexual orientation, transsexual identity or disability.
Mrs Cunningham told Holyrood's Justice Committee today: "In terms of the second offence, widening that out to include the same categories as the first offence, I have no huge antipathy to that."
The Lord Advocate added: "I'm fairly relaxed about broadening out the second offence, but that is a matter for parliamentarians."
Mrs Cunningham said she was also open to extending the discriminatory remarks to cover those based on age and gender as well to bring it in line with other discrimination legislation.
.... "no huge antipathy"..."fairly relaxed".... Is it only the Scotch who are going to be monitored worldwide for thoughtcrimes, or are they relaxed about the idea of ensuring no body anywhere says anything nasty about anyone.
