Freedom of speech is dead in the UK

Following my last post where I detailed the numerous ways in which the English have few if any of the civil rights enjoyed by their American cousins, yet another story has been brought to my attention on social media. Which the BBC covered without the slightest whiff of complaint or alarm. See here:

The former Lib-Dem political activist admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by violating a security cordon, shouting and failing to desist, attempting to approach Mr Cameron and causing fear and alarm.

He was handed a community payback order with the condition he has to carry out 100 hours of community service…

…It was heard he shouted “No ifs, no buts, no public sector cuts.”

Eight words = criminal record + 100 hours of community service. 

You couldn’t make it up.
