One rule for one ... ... !!!

I have just read an article from one of yesterday's newspapers, regarding the now-ended Conservative Part Conference:

"'Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, dead, dead, dead," scream the protesters as they file past the Midland hotel in Manchester. It is a cruel greeting for the Conservative party as it gathers in this most un-Tory city. "Filth, you're a waste of space, a waste of oxygen," they shout at the shiny young delegates as they pass. I suggest to a policeman that this constitutes intimidation, especially the bloke in the "Kill Tory scum" T-shirt who is filming people as they enter the secure zone. "We have to protect people's right to protest, but it's a fine line," he admits."

Now, I am fully aware that there are differences, sometimes significant differences, in the law in Scotland and that of the rest of the UK.  However, it is not only in Scotland that street preachers of the Gospel are being arrested for Breach of the Peace, so-called 'homophobia' (I wish that some people would work out the etymology of that over-used word), or whatever a local police officer decides is appropriate.

So the question must be asked.  If the police have a duty to protect people's right to protest, why does that not seem to apply when the person in question is 'protesting' about the normalisation of homosexuality, or the increasing sinfulness of our contemporary society?  The old proverb states that "What is sauce for the goose, is sauce for the gander".  I'm going to be writing to my own (Labour) MP, and to my MSPs, about this.  May I encourage others to do the same?
