Remove from the statues all references to discriminatory motive in respect of any offence.

Why is this idea important?

An action is either right or wrong, there can be 'circumstances' but discrimination or personal prejudice should not come into it. An assault is no worse for being on a person with dark skin than on a person with red hair. It is no worse to dislike someone for who they love than for who their father was.

If the victim is especially vulnerable, that is relevant, but if the offender is the sort of idiot who judges people on irrelevancies, that is NOT relevant!
