The government’s Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill has passed its second reading in the House of Commons. The controversial legislation would see, among other things:
Fines and prison sentences for anyone found guilty of causing “serious annoyance”.
The potential for a ten-year prison sentence for damaging a statue.
Noise and time restrictions on demonstrations, even those carried out by just one person.
This has the potential to prevent even the most peaceful of demonstrations and does nothing to address violent crime.
Remember ladies, if you need to be out for any reason disguise yourself as a statue and the police will protect you.
