But the bigger picture looks worse by making it a prosecutable offence it means we will all end up with criminal records and then they will have the power to hold our DNA and finger prints on record. Which is something they have wanted to do for a long time.
Just seems the Thought Police have joined forces with the PC Mob to finally find a way.
I suggest before it seriously get's going we hold Mass Swear Athons outside every Government establishment until they come to their senses.
Can you imagine it would be the end of Live television reporting, because the TV company could be sued for broadcasting obscene language... Even the edit BLEEP will be seen as obscene.
We could also send an E Mail to our MP's telling them in no uncertain terms you want to stay an MP then get rid of this F#*&^ing stupid Law !
You have just got to think that some people have got way too much time on their hands? How in the hell are they going to police that, or will it be just another ploy (we have these in the UK) to make money by fining random people?
I saw on the news this morning that the police have actually done it !!
It is a prosecutable offence to swear in public in a town in Yorkshire I think it was Bradford...I considered it such a stupid idea that I didnt really listen to the item in full ,no doubt though it will be in all the tabloids tomorrow if not today !!
Trouble is, it won't even be the people with the really foul mouths that they will go after, it will be some helpless old lady or middle class professional who will not cause the police any trouble when they fine them.
And the truly foul-mouthed will would only wheel out their 'yuman rights lawyers anyway, costing the country another however many thousand quid in legal fees.
In the UK there are already adequate laws in place to deal with someone being aggressive and verbally abusive to another person, so lay off our rights to free speech. If I want to cuss and swear I will!
I really wondered that myself, but it seems they are aiming it at least partially at football fans and the like. The police do little at these games because there are never enough of them to even stop brawls. When a Serbian teams play the Croatians or other such clashes occur they disappear!
They have no hope of stopping them swearing there, so it will be Dad saying bloody at the cricket who will cop the fine.
This bloody mad pack of pollies couldn't get a pie in a bakery!!
Don't worry guys - I will get the Chinese human rights team to protest in the UN for you, then get them to fund any protesters and smuggle them in arms and rocket launchers, then get them to randomly bomb your cities and units of your repressive military, then get them to shoot you all up by accident in some remote location, then revoke the political status of your premiers and their children and drop plastic drone bombs on your school parties and village halls where significant political targets might be watching their kids nativity play - and then - ahh sod it I think I'll just sit out front of my favourite restaurant with my beer and my smoking buddies swearing the evening away in total freedom from harassment
I firmly believe that I would've taken a baseball bat to a few people if I didn't swear in my car on my daily commute. Trouble is the baby just got tubes in his ears and he can now actually HEAR me, so I'm going to have to use covert hand gestures instead!
I usually stay calm when I drive, but the other day someone drove straight out their driveway into the traffic without looking and I had to brake suddenly, I swore without realising I still had the three little ones in the car!
I pretended to repeat what I had said, but changed the words considerably. I hope they didn't notice.
Well they are already talking about everyone's pay going directly to the HMRC, HMRC deducting all their taxes and only then paying the balance into people's bank accounts.
The theory is that it will save companies time and money, but it would feel like getting government pocket money. And with their recent past record, it would bound to be a fiasco. Great incentive to stay self employed LOL!
