Yet more amendments under the guise of justice.

It seems that we still have our politicians making legislation to increase the penalties for people who are found to have incited hatred with gays. Read here.

Well I don't know about you but I'm really fed up of finding out that everything I say about any person who is not your standard white male can be used against me in a court of law.

It must be about time that all these laws are scrapped and the penalties for any offence should be the same. Not an additional few years because it was a white guy doing the offence while the exact same offence against a white guy ends up as a lesser sentence.

All factors such as sexual orientation should not be considered when facing trial and the penalties should be the same.

The poor non gay white guys are always the ones who are deemed to be the criminals and deserving of a higher sentence. Now personally I do not have a axe to grind about gay people. I don't have very strong feeling either way, although it is starting to change, but that does not extend to them being treated preferentially because they have made a different choice that the bulk of the population and they are really upset because some people call them names and don't support their choices. Boo Hoo.

After the case in Bristol, read here, where it was the innocent bystanders who got punished while those performing illegal acts get away scot free because they are one of the, so called, persecuted minority then surely it must be recognised that there is something wrong when a criminal act can be performed by one person purely because of his sexual orientation whilst someone who made less traditional choices is deemed to not have committed an offence.

You don't make decisions which are controversial and insist that other people should all agree with your choices. Yet gays whinge and whine about other people not supporting their choices and laws are made to support that. That is just not right. No reason at all for our justice system, mickey mouse as it is, to get involved at all.

When the 'Retribution Party', only one member to date, me) we shall abolish all legislation concerning what you may say. I shall return to my position of being offensive to everybody

Mmmm. Perhaps when the time comes we need to merge all the retribution parties and compare notes on who the traitors are.

You may be the sole member of that party but I suspect there are many similar parties around.
