Gulag UK: More Police Attacks on Free Speech

Many of my informed readers are already aware of a street preacher being arrested in Workington for saying homosexuality is a sin.

And if one thinks this surely is a case of an obnoxious loud street preacher with a chip on his shoulder who was practically asking to be arrested, consider this account of what transpired. It appears it was the police who had chips on their shoulders, particularly the officer who just happened to be a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender liaison officer.

Then there’s the South Yorkshire man hassled by the police because of a homemade sign in the window of his own house urging voters to “get the lot out.” So opposing those in power can get you in trouble in Gulag UK.

And in case a reader objects to me dubbing present-day Britain “Gulag UK”, would you rather I call the UK “a police state”? That is at least the direction it is heading.

By the way, have any of the three major parties made freedom an issue in the current election campaign?
