Transphobic Tweeters Rights Upheld by High Court Judge 16th February 2020 – Posted in: News
I am pleased to report that a ‘transphobic’ tweeters rights have been upheld by a High Court Judge. Earlier this week, an ex-policeman – Harry Miller – won his case against a UK police-force. The judge ruled that the force’s actions were a ‘disproportionate interference’ with Mr Miller’s right to freedom of expression. Afterwards it was reported that this was a landmark High Court ruling.
So, what’s this all about? Basically, prior to the case, Mr Miller was visited by officers from Humberside Police and told that comments in some of his tweets would be recorded as a non-crime “hate incident”.
After the judgement, his solicitor Paul Conrathe commented as follows. “It is a strong warning to local police forces not to interfere with people’s free speech rights on matters of significant controversy.” Thankfully, a so-called transphobic tweeters rights were upheld.
At this time, wokery is becoming a popular way of life for an increasing number of lefties. What’s more, freedom of speech is becoming under increasing threat from many who think it wrong to offend. I thank God therefore, that the judge involved was a plain-speaking individual whose ruling was based on common-sense!
