    Re: Convicted for a bad taste joke?

    I find ricky gervais's comment annoying, he wasn't convicted in a UK court it was a scottish court

    Joking aside to put it in a bit more context we have a serious problem with sectarianism in scotland there has recently been a massive debate about the Offensive Behaviour at Football Act which was pased in 2011 to try and stop the intimidation violence at football matches the opposition want to repeal it as having been ineffective. religious bigotry is a deadly serious issue although it's a hard one to deal with, if you are going to take down all the ira you tube postings you would have to also take down the anti-catholic ones not to mention all tye anti-muslim ones nigel farage would be prosecuted for inciting hatred against immigrants.

    It was deliberately offensive but it's unlikely he will be locked more likely fined or a community dervice order.

    Offensive or not is it worth him being locked up ?

    No, it's worth it to have him gassed. HaHa, LOL, whatever.

    Re: Convicted for a bad taste joke?

    It is not only grossly offensive, given the history of the sentiment and the active policy of doing just that it is a hate crime.

    Jail? I doubt it but he should be hit where it hurts until he realises how serious it is - to call it a joke is lame, the best he could come up with as mitigation.

    I challenge anyone to come up with a joke that isn't hurtful to someone.

    That's because in living memory no one has tried to wipe out your entire tribe, most often using the method of gas. It's not a joke, it's a man who is a total jerk. No, I don't think he should be jailed for it, I believe in the right of protected free speech, unless used to incite an action, which I don't believe he was doing. He's a moron, plain & simple, but he is not a comedian either.

    He's a pathetic tosser who is unlikely to get a custodial sentence. Surprised his girlfriend is still with him it was her dog after all.
