PA 16726674 Spurs Fans Free To Sing Yid Army After Tottenham Three Case Thrown Out

 

THE three Tottenham Hotspur fans charged with criminal offences for using the word “Yid” will not be taken to court and have their lives ruined by the Met Police’s anti-free speech division. The Crown Prosecution Service says the three have no case to answer.

Gary Whybrow, 31, Sam Parsons, 24 and Peter Ditchman, 52, appeared in – get this – Highbury Court on Friday, after being accused of racial harassment in connection with the “Y-word”.

The Y-word. So says the Jewish Chronicle in its report. The word is Yid. It is not the Y-word. It is not a taboo.

Spurs fans will sing what they want to. And the rest of us should say what we want to. Football is being used to reach the elite’s social and political objectives. Don’t let them police passion.

PS – If you want to fight anti-Semitism, look at this sort of thing. This is what the educated and knowing think is fine.
