Reader Jez sent me this video taking the mickey out of Scotland’s “hate speech” strictures, encapsulated in Scotland’s “Hate Crime and Public Order Act of 2021″, part 3. I doubt that anyone would get arrested for saying anything like thi, but one never knows in the UK any more. I know that the Scottish Free Speech Union, as well as others, are concerned about how this Act might be use to suppress free speech.
Anyway, I found this pretty funny:

Literally weeping. Don’t know why this got me going but it’s hysterical.
Thanks, PCC(e). This clip was hysterical (and my apologies to the hysteria community).
Reminds me of when I tell students about hysterectomies 😄. I’d likely get in trouble these days.
Scotland is the most ludicrously “woke” part of Britain; several years ago, Humza Yousaf (SNP) was ranting about the wildly disproportionate number of people of pallor (i.e. the absence of what should be mandated through DEI) in official positions in Caledonia.
Of course, Humza Yousaf (aka Humza Useless) is the frontrunner in the current election for the replacement of Nicola Sturgeon as Scotland’s first minister. There are dark rumblings that the competition is being stitched up by the leadership of the Scottish National Party (the SNP’s chief executive is Sturgeon’s husband, Peter Murrell). https://wingsoverscotland.com/the-last-days-of-saigon/
Agreed, this is funny.
I would like to apologize to my far left friends about my inexcusable laughter during this hurtful and violent video. I now understand that not everyone is able to laugh at themselves. I will now deeply and sower-fully reflect upon my moment of inappropriate mirth, and I promise to hence-forth commit myself to the hard work of being a complete and utter drag during every social occasion.
You just defamed the entire drag community there. Apology incomplete.
The sitcom is “Scot Squad”, and the references might not work across the pond but this sketch tickled my funny bone: https://youtu.be/xIiNbBQM_Go
I understood most, but did not remember the Stylophone.
“Rolf Harris (born 30 March 1930) is an Australian entertainer whose career has encompassed work as a musician, singer-songwriter, composer, comedian, actor, painter and television personality. He often used unusual instruments in his performances: he played the didgeridoo and the stylophone and is credited with the invention of the wobble board. Harris was convicted in 2014 of the sexual assault of four underage girls, which effectively ended his career.”
ChinamanChinese whispers game is not the issue here, dude!
I hear that over 3000 people have been charged and convicted of various thought crimes in one year in the UK.
