As i have said in the past this is how police states start and some of you lot took me to task over it.

And here I was thinking that police states were all about drumming up hate, not trying to stop it. Any other nuggests of wisdom you'd like to share with us?

The SNP want to make it a criminal offence to have possession of what they deem ''imflamitary material '' so in effect book burning . Will the Bible or some other religious books  be classed as ''imflamitary materiel '' considering some of there content ? We seem to be heading towards a situation with the police raiding peoples homes to check their book shelves for books the SNP don't like with a SEVEN jail sentence for offenders    https://beta.parliament.scot/-/media/files/legislation/bills/current-bills/hate-crime-and-public-order-scotland-bill/introduced/explanatory-notes-hate-crime-and-public-order-scotland-bill.pdf

Same type of law has been rolled out in New Zealand knowingly possessing or sharing objectionable material carries up to a 14 year jail term

By the way new Zealand has a Chief Censor and that is his actual job title "Chief Censor"

Will Scotland get a Chief Censor?
