The Mirror reported back in 2010 that Nicky Wishart was removed from class – by anti-terror police – after he used Facebook to organise a protest outside David Cameron’s constituency office. His innocent request for people to “save our youth centre” was used as evidence against him. The paper reported him as saying, “All this is because Mr Cameron is our local MP and it’s a bit embarrassing for him.” We say it should be embarrassment to Cameron as an obvious misuse of the law had been applied. As Jayne Linney has pointed out, it criminalises “any behaviour that may be deemed as “nuisance”, or liable to cause annoyance… it actually allows the police to arrest any group in a public place they think may upset someone!” Peaceful protest has now become a criminal offence if the police say so. Here’s a copy of the law back when it was a bill before it was enacted into law. We’ve highlighted and noted the parts of concern. Here is the “Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014” from Government. We’ll bring you examples of where the Act appears to have been misused later.
