A 43-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with a “racially abusive” posting on a beauty salon’s Facebook page.
Thames Valley Police detained the woman after the posting – made following the Paris terrorist attacks – said that people from the “Islamic faith” were no longer welcome at the Blinks of Bicester spa and beauty salon.
The Facebook postings read: “Blinks of Bicester are no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith whether you are UK granted with passport or not” and “Sorry but time to put my country first”.
As is well known, my position is that people can say anything they damn well want to, whoever it upsets. But apparently the law disagrees. The law goes well beyond my two exceptions of libel and incitement to violence.
But isn’t it marvelous when there’s 5 or 6 of the conspirators thought to be still on the run, the police arrest a woman for gobbing off about it?
All safer in our beds now, aren’t we?
