BNP Attack on Notts

You know, even this happened to Forest I would still be outrighed but admittably it wouldn't be personal.

They have done this tweet, just like PETA put up their advertisment poster. I don't think modern politics should allow people to get a way with this type of behaviour, it must stop because they're not a political party and they have no interest in making the U.K a better country. All they're doing is attempting to get a way with this exact type of behaviour!

Just because they're a political party doesn't mean they should be treated any better than others.

Twitter should remove and ban them from having a presence on their site, however we all know they don't care about 'regular' users - they're big enough to want to keep the power they have. Only way they'll change is if celebraties and other famous personalities start to pull their accounts!

I wouldn't put this in the same category as PETA at all. I think the animal liberation people do make fair points about how we treat animals. PETA attempted to grab the attention with a shocking poster, but it was deemed inappropriate and rightly so.


 


This, however, doesn't go any deeper than "foreigners are bad". Yet another good reason to beat the Gills on Sunday.


 


Twitter banning political parties is a dangerous road to go down. Let these fascists reveal to the world what clowns they really are.

No, I am simply comparing that the two things have been 'designed'.

Incitement to religious hatred

If someone incites hatred of a racial or religious group, or tries to persuade someone to commit a criminal offence against another race or group by publishing and/or distributing hateful information about that group, they may be prosecuted for an offence. This includes website content, emails, text messages and internet chat rooms.

Would you say that is racist because if it is then we've got laws to stop this sort of thing? Have the police been informed? If they have why aren't they doing something about it?

 

It's a disgusting thing to say but typical of BNP.

Problem is it wouldn't get far. The BNP strategically use the word 'immigrants' instead of 'blacks' or whatever other variant of none-white British term you can imagine. Thus, they are not targeting a specific race, ethnicity, or nationality. 

I guess you could class it as 'stirring hate' but I don't think anyone gets stirred by the BNP, apart from themselves of course.

Bless them, they don't even have an office.... they have a PO box and a mobile phone... that's it...

If that's the criteria for a political party these days, I'm only a PO box short.

PONP. Pride of Nottingham Party. Who's with me?

Our manifesto consists of making Notts County the best football team in the world, and eradicating F***st completely.

The House of Lords passed amendments[6][7] to the Bill on 25 October 2005 which have the effect of limiting the legislation to "A person who uses threatening words or behaviour, or displays any written material which is threatening... if he intends thereby to stir up religious hatred". This removed the abusive and insulting concept, and required the intention — and not just the possibility — of stirring up religious hatred

So the offence of attempting to incite racial hatred could well have been committed because as it says above:

the post doesn't need to be abusive or insulting but more openly relies on the point of it being published for the intention of raising racial tension or hatred.

No religion or race is mentioned in what they said. The only thing you can get them for is inciting hatred against all immigrants, but none on race or religion.
