First of all take the strange case of Gwion Jones who wrote derogatory offensive comments about the English on his Facebook wall and was prosecuted following a complaint by his ex employer who is English.
The second case concerns the furore on Facebook regarding the fact that the Wrecsam Muslim Association have purchased the Miners Institute in Grosvenor Road with the intention of using it as a mosque.
Those of you of a sensitive disposition may wish to avoid the Facebook pages for fear of being offended by some of the vitriolic anti Islamic comments so I have copied some of the comments and readers can judge for themselves whether they are as bad or worse than what Gwion Jones said:
I know this sounds Racists but its not..Show them the contempt they showed our people...go bomb the building and show them they cant have everything they want without repercussions.
yes but sometimes sacrifices have to be made..up here in Scotland not far from where I live there was an old heitage brewery similar situation to this one..in an underhand deal with the council the muzzies ended up with it as a mosque..Now ...people up here didnt like that so it Mysteriously got burned down late one dark night..no one knows how it happened..lol but the mosque is no more and has since moved into central glasgow....ok we lost an old building but we still have the memories etc of it..but we dont have the stinky muzzies wailing at 5 am in the morning either..lol.
Now the chances are that you will agree with me that these comments are probably prosecutable but when I asked a senior Police Officer whether they would prosecute I was reminded of the 'fine line between committing a crime and freedom of speech'.I wonder if that same Police Force applied the same standard to what Gwion Jones said or is it one rule for anti English comments and another one for anti Islamic comments.
