1.2mn Arrested In Scotland On First Day Of New Hate Speech Law


OVER one fifth of the population of Scotland was arrested on the first day of the new hate speech law yesterday, sparking fears that there will be no one left on the outside if the trend continues.

Courts up and down the country were packed to the rafters with people convicted of hate speech as the controversial new law took effect yesterday morning, crippling the nation and bringing it to a halt.

“If this keeps up the economy could collapse within days,” government sources told WWN.

Senior police officers said they can’t keep up with the complaints of online posts with a huge backlog expected to see most of the Scottish nation accused of hate speech and locked up in a cell by the weekend.

The Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act 2021 creates a new crime of “stirring up hatred” relating to age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity with a maximum penalty of seven years.

“I was only slaggin’,” one Glaswegian man accused of hate speech told a judge today, “I slag everyone off, how cannae be accused of hating just one group of people when I actually hate them all equally?”

Meanwhile closer to home, Justice Minister Helen McEntee reassured the public that the Irish version of the law will only affect certain people the government doesn’t agree with.
