Amend racially or religiously aggravated disorderly behaviour legislation

Comment 2nd July 2010

Amend the relevant laws so that an investigation cannot be triggered solely by a report from an observer.

Why does this matter?

Under existing legislation a prosecution may be brought where behaviour which in the opinion of an observer is considered to be religiously or racially aggravated, even though the alleged victim has not considered it to be so. This is patently illogical and an absurd pursuit of the holy grail of 'political correctness'.  It can also, as perhaps recently demonstrated in the Bristol City Council case, result in much squandering of public (and private) funds in trailing the case through the courts.
