Peter Nunn and Stella Creasy MP

Well well. Back last year, when professional offendotron and loud mouth Caroline Criado Perez was finding out the hard way that Twitter contains differing views, Peter Nunn of Bristol sent some tweets to Stella Creasy MP (another shrieker of the highest order) and was charged under  section 127 of the Communications Act, which relates to the sending of electronic messages that are "grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character".

He's just proudly appeared at Westminster Magistrates, dressed in a suit and happily posing for photographers before pleading not guilty.

We finally have a suspect who is not a hapless drunken dole monkey and happy to fight his corner, well versed in law and up to prove that abuse is perfectly legal under the CPS guidelines. At last, we will see how the law intends to handle those who will not meekly accept a slap on the wrist for daring to have a different opinion than that of our masters (and mistresses).

I wish Peter Nunn all the success in the world. This will be a landmark prosecution for freedom of speech over social media and will tell us all how the authorities intend to deal with dissent from the lower orders via a medium they are desperate to control. Feel free to follow him on twitter ( and offer whatever support you can - I certainly shall. For the sake of me, you and our children.
