Racial and Religious Hatred Bill

"Blair's no-show causes defeat on hatred Bill"

It's quite amusing that Blair lost this by not bothering to vote. Mwhahahaha.

I'm glad the bill was amended so that only threatening language is actionable, abuse/offence are still legal. Where would comedy be otherwise? And freedom of speech generally, of course.

A lot of my views as an atheist are probably abhorrent and/or offensive to theists, as indeed some of their beliefs are abhorrent and offensive to me. It was far too vague, no matter what promises about fine-tuning were made.
