Unfortunately used to enforce 'speech crime' (as an excuse to arrest usually) – anything said or written on a placard (i.e. during protest) that may cause 'offence' is an arrestable offence.

Why is this idea important?

It's an excuse to arrest.  Almost everything that could be said may 'offend' another random member of the public.
