Headlines on leading law site: ============================= "It can be racist to make reference to 'bl00dy foreigners' even if the insult is no more specific than that, the House of Lords has ruled." The decision was made in a case where a man's abusive words and behaviour were judged to have been racially aggravated. A Mr Rogers was on his way home from the pub in the mobility scooter he uses because of his arthritis. When he came across three Spanish women on the pavement there was an altercation and he was said to have pursued them aggressively into a kebab house. There he was found to have used abusive, threatening or insulting behaviour, and he called them "****** foreigners" and told them to "go back to your own country". He was convicted by Winchester Crown Court of using racially aggravated abusive or insulting words or behaviour with the intent to cause fear or provoke violence, and was sentenced to 80 hours of community service. ============================= So... careful what you say to anyone nowadays eh!
