State of civil liberties in the UK ? call an MP a coward and face jail
by Tom Pride 

(not satire - it's the UK today)

I've written before about how woeful the state of civil liberties is in the UK.

This simple chart also illustrates how bad it's got:


And now we see a member of the public is facing jail time for calling a Tory MP a coward:

Brighton man faces jail for calling Hove MP Mike Weatherley 'coward'

And this is what happens when try to photograph or video a police officer in the UK:

Arrested for filming police officers - video

As opposed to when you try to do it in Sweden:

What happens When You Try To Film The Police Is Sweden

I rest my case.
