    How pleasing – they may now desist from arresting p*ssed up students for jokingly suggesting a policeman’s horse is gay.

    Next I think they should have guidelines for differentiating between the gluteus maximus and the humerous.

    You really seem to dislike gay people vulpus_rex.

    Are you not able to see the good in this new policy?

    Any comment you make seems to be instinctively at the expense of gay people or in defence of the status quo. I know you are a Tory. Do you think that you are representative of the Tory party? If so then I am worried that when / if the Tories get elected next year that minority rights are in serious danger if your Daily Mail style moralising is going to be the politics of the country.

    Ha – very amusing Simon – posting lots of anti labour comments = anti gay, how original of you. Even managed a cheeky link to the Daily Mail!

    I could in return make a quip about you reading the guardian, but that would be trite and obvious and require resorting to stereotypes, a practice you so clearly disdain.

    Whilst In theory I suppose I can see the good in something like this, it is also symptomatic of an increasingly comatose bureaucracy that cannot operate without reference to a written scheme of regulation.

    I don’t like it because as clearly demonstrated by anti-terrorist legislation it can also be openly abused.

    If the police can’t now get you on terrorist legislation more guidelines just mean increased power of abuse.

    Mock if you want to but I didn’t see Walter Wolfgang laughing as he was manhandled out of the Labour party conference as a suspected terrorist.
