MotorMouth Saunders is at it again.

One of the gleaming achievements of America’s Founders is the First Amendment to the Constitution, stating that Congress shall make no Law…….. abridging Freedom of Speech. Would that we here within the British Isles had such a protection! We don’t, and that very freedom is, once more, coming under legal threat because the thin-lipped and -skinned boss of the Crown Prosecution Service says so.

We used to have, in this Nation, a total assumption that the accused is innocent until found to be guilty. Not any more. As I believe has been pointed out on these pages before, the farrago which now takes the place of Justice is self-evident in the statement from the C.P.S. which said:-

The definition of hate crime, recognised by the CPS and police, is “any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice” towards the personal characteristics mentioned above. Of course, different types of offences have differing consequences and, as online abuse by its nature cannot cause direct physical harm to a victim, it can never be considered or sentenced in the same way. But we know online hate crime has devastating effects.”

Note the phrase which goes against every former Legal Ordinance, every Statute, every legal document laid before the British Parliament which clearly states that the suspect must be proven guilty; either by evidence laid and scrutinised by magistrate or judge and jury; or by an admission of guilt. The phrase “by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice”turns centuries of legal precedent upon its head” means that the accuser has already been found guilty; by either ‘his accuser’, or ‘any other person’.

The vicious authoritarian streak which many have considered one of Alison Saunders’ least pleasant traits is coming out ever more: and she has the power; she, or rather the CPS under her dictatorial ruleis maybe soon coming for me, or you, or that bloke who lives down at the bend in the road!

    Doesn’t the Home Secretary have control of the CPS; therefore doesn’t the buck stop at her desk? Either Miss Saunders is taking instructions from Miss Rudd or she’s gone renegade, and if that’s the case either or both of these people should be fired from their jobs.

      ‘Gone renegade’…? No, that’s the point she started from!

    Nanny knows best and she wears the jackboots of totalitarianism “you will say and think: as I tell you to we are watching and listening”.

    Amber’s? well actually mother may’s mates, is another sense of humour bypassed apparatchik, a stern faced doppelganger of Mrs Merkel and cut from the same uber censorial cloth. Please, God help us because no one else will, what did we ever do to merit these malformed characters with ill conceived, obscenely prejudiced world views and allowed to maniacally wield the levers of power?

    Something has to give because this sort of closed-minded nihilist, ideological assault on UK society must be countered and ceased, rolled back and ultimately effaced. Indeed, what have they ‘TPTB’ got to worry about…………..except the cold unrelenting stare it’s icy breathed vapour coalescing in the………cold light of day, emanating adamantine the implacable silence of logic and rational thought…………

    ex: the body of the truth.

    Meanwhile, in other news the US Navy gets ever more careless with its ‘ocean going kit’ -USS John S. McCain is there a message in there somewhere? is it a software navigational problem? Or just incompetence or perish the thought – dereliction of duty and systemic?

      Just as it’s said the US has hacked N. Korea’s missile software, causing many test failures, I now wonder if their own ships’ software has been hacked.

      It’s hard to detect effing great ships visually in some conditions at sea, but ignoring obvious (& auto-flagged) radar collision warnings? It’s a bit fishy…

    If the US Navy is unable to avoid contact with bloody big ships, what chance are they going to have against RPG bearing assault craft?

    That vaunted ammendment means nothing when cretinous childre of that state set about silencing free speech themselves.

    The Left don’t like dissent. They are authoritarian wing nuts.

    Agree Mike, and share your absolute disgust and rejection of Saunder’s re-definition of free speech. In my view there is no such thing as a “hate crime”.
    The conflation of the two words into a legal concept is a contradiction in terms.
    There is hate, and there is crime, but no such thing as a “hate crime” – i.e. code for inhibiting freedom of expression.
    The latest move by Saunders is an attempt to restrict free speech under the guise of policing and protecting against perceived offensive speech, on line or off line.

    However, any attempts to police on line comments to categorise them as “hate speech will IMO fail miserably, if only because it is quite literally mission impossible.
    Today the DT reports that already police are overwhelmed with ever increasing demands to monitor computer screens, and the cost is of course prohibitive – so it will inevitably fail if only for reasons of scale and available manpower.

    The danger for all who love liberty is that our feeble and vindictive leftist administrators from the Home Office to CPS seek to undermine and then destroy every element of our once and almost perfect system of laws which existed over many centuries and admired and respected the world over, namely English Common law.
    It epitomised the children’s rhyme “sticks and stone will hurt my bones but names will never hurt me”. i.e. one can say or do whatever you like just as long as there is no physical threat to the persons involved.
    Further the checks and balances of libel and slander laws always provided a source of legal redress to being “offended” if needed.

    So yes, Mike “the First Amendment to the Constitution, stating that Congress shall make no Law…….. abridging Freedom of Speech remains perhaps the finest expression of the safeguarding of free speech conceivable ever for a government to be bound by, although as we know leftists in the USA have been doing their best to circumvent and dismantle it for many years now – BUT it remains a vital building block of their Constitution. I do not believe that come what may, the Yanks will ever abandon the First Amendment without another Civil war first.

    However, the attempt to suppress freedom of speech and expression via new “hate crime” laws will I believe inevitably fail if for no other reason that the greatest engine of such expression in the form of the internet can never be effectively policed.
    The internet genie is now out of the bottle for ever, and no government or police authority will ever be able to control its myriad potential for the greatest expression of popular and free speech ever devised. Try as they may to kill of off one free speech web site on the grounds of “hate-speech” with their new definitions then inevitably a dozen more “free” sites will spring up in their place ad infinitum.
    Little wonder then that authoritarian governments, and in particular the totalitarian EU, hate the internet and will do anything possible to control or inhibit it. They will fail and fail again.
    So, three cheers for the First Amendment – would that Britain formally adopted this objective for government and freedom that the Founding Fathers in their wisdom proclaimed for a free people. But of course our witless political class will never do that which diminishes for a moment on their own grip on power.

      [Sorry about the multiple attempts, Graham. Bloody system again. Only just caught it, having been out of [medical] since yesterday.]

    I think this perception idiocy will only get squashed when it before a judge and hopefully a jury of 12 sane and sensible people. Whatver happened to sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me?
