Why we should all hate the hate-crime laws


The mission creep of Britain's hate-crime laws mean it may soon be illegal to hate anybody else at all, whether at football matches or in your own head. Even if you show your feelings through silent jazz hands rather than aggressive clapping. The Home Office has asked the Law Commission to undertake a review which, reports the Guardian, 'will look at whether there are any gaps in the hate-crime legislation', and propose measures to fill them in with even more legal cement.
