Incorrect newspaper clippings in Britain

We read:
"A pub landlord [bar owner] has hit out after being arrested on suspicion of committing a racially-aggravated public order offence. Police swooped on Peter Mailer's premises, the Black Bull Hotel in Warkworth, last Tuesday, following a formal complaint over newspaper clippings, political cartoons and other items displayed on his bar-room walls.

Mr Mailer, who admits he is an active supporter of the British National Party, was hauled into Alnwick Police Station, along with the cuttings, where he provided a taped interview under caution. He has now been bailed to return to the station on December 23, when he will learn whether or not the Crown Prosecution Service will charge him.

But the 52-year-old publican said he was stunned to learn that the complaint had been made by an off-duty senior police officer from Nottinghamshire, who was on holiday in the region when he paid a visit to the Black Bull the previous Friday night. "There was absolutely nothing said about the so-called racist items on my wall. About 90 per cent of them were clippings taken directly from national newspapers. "On Tuesday two Northumbria officers turned up and arrested me, took everything off the walls and I had to go to the station to give a taped interview."

He added: "It seems that this senior officer had to justify his fat salary by rocking the boat in a sleepy little village hundreds of miles away from where he lives. "I've had this pub three years, it's full of regulars of all political persuasions who don't have an issue with what I put on my walls."....

A spokeswoman for Northumbria Police said: "A 52-year-old man from the Alnwick area was arrested on Tuesday, November 25, on suspicion of committing a racially-aggravated public order offence, and has been bailed."

It's legal for the newspapers to publish it but you must not pin it up on your walls???? I'm guessing that the clippings were mainly reports of immigrant crimes.

The British desperately need a First Amendment type Free Speech protection.

Don't worry. Once the Muslims take finally over, it'll be a moot point.

Were the newspapers also charged? Also, did anyone give the off-duty officer a sobriety test?

It seems britain is getting worse by the day. Personally, i hope all the radical muslims they've welcomed into their country take-over soon. I mean "completely" take over!

The key here is "senior police officers" How do you get to be a senior police officer in the UK? Not by pounding the beat and catching criminals - What you do is firstly gain a degree in criminology or sociolegy , then join the police on their graduate fast track program, go straight into a desk job as an inspector from there providing you make the right noices about "diversity" your promotion to a seior officers post is guarenteed.Most police contables hold their senior officers in comtempt - the phrase is "bramshill flyers" after the police college.The two idiots cocerned probably never did a days worth of honest poliing in their lives

Do the police in britain actually catch criminals anymore?
If the US had the same absurd PC laws that britain had, we'd have to hire 3 times the number of cops to keep pace.
