The UK will quadruple prison sentences for online abuse, trolls can get up to 2 years in jail

court-crop-786x305

The issue of online trolling is never too far awayfrom public debate, but the UK government is gearing up to tackle the problem head-on by quadrupling the maximum sentence for those convicted of online abuse.

The news comes hot on the heels of the well-publicized threats aimed at Judy Finnegan and her daughter on Twitter, after the TV presenter voiced a degree of support for a footballer who was set to be released from prison after serving two years for rape.

Now, as the Mail on Sunday reports , internet trolls who partake in vile abuse could receive anything up to two years behind bars as part of a renewed attempt to curb trolling.

“These internet trolls are cowards who are poisoning our national life,” said Justice Secretary Chris Grayling. “No one would permit such venom in person, so there should be no place for it on social media. That is why we are determined to quadruple the current six-month sentence.”

An amendment to facilitate this new law will be made to the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill that is already going through Parliament.

Alice Gross sister blasts BBC Question Time for ‘horrible’ and ‘insensitive’ debate

Nina Gross, 19, branded the discussion as “extremely insensitive” and “horrible” after a panel of politicians debated immigration issues arising from the investigation into the 14-year-old’s death. An audience member asked whether convicted criminals should be allowed to cross Europe’s borders, which prompted a discussion over whether convicted murderer Arnis Zalkalns, the prime suspect in Alice’s murder, should have been allowed in to Britain.  As the debate got underway the Cambridge University student took to Twitter to express her outrage. She wrote: “It is extremely insensitive to use my family’s tragedy for political agendas and discussion. This is a time of grief for our family. In future, please respect our wishes as we grieve. “This is a personal tragedy which we want to deal with privately, rather than fearing anyone using it for any political agenda. “Now is not the time for these discussions.” This is the first time Miss Gross has spoken since her sister was found dead in the River Brent, west London, on Tuesday.  In later posts directed at BBC Twitter accounts, she added: “It is really insensitive and horrible that you have used our family’s tragedy on Question Time.”

The BBC later issued an apologised. 

A post from the show’s Twitter account said: “Dear Nina, we’re sorry to hear this. We’re really sorry for any hurt or offence caused by tonight’s programme.” Appearing to accept the apology, Nina replied: “Thank you” and retweeted the apology.  The outrage began after Question Time host David Dimbleby opened the debate and said a question was submitted to the panel referring to the “hideous murder of Alice Gross.” He said: “The question is whether there should be freedom of movement including convicted criminals across EU borders.” A discussion lasting around eight minutes followed. Alice was last seen on August 28 after leaving her home in Hanwell, west London. Latvian Arnis Zalkalns was identified as a suspect by police after he was spotted following Alice along the canal towpath where she was last seen.

The 41-year-old has been missing since September 3. He spent seven years in prison for bludgeoning and stabbing his wife Rudite to death. He is thought to have come to the UK in 2007 from Latvia, but UK authorities allegedly have no record of this conviction. Yesterday, police said a post-mortem examination had proved inconclusive and they will need to carry out further tests to determine how the teenager died. Alice’s parents Rosalind Hodgkiss and Jose Gross described themselves as “completely devastated” after their daughter’s body was found.

HOW TO STOP PAYING TV LICENCE

ByAn02sCAAAUdgW

Caught this on Twitter, had to share. Save yourself a few quid a week. They have NO legal way of taking you anywhere, never mind court. Letters are lies, people WILL come to your door. You have no legal obligation to exchange words with them, acknowledge your name, Close the door. Cut the lies away at the roots, maybe the BBC will understand ‘Democracy’ when £Millions” go missing :D Just do it!

OF COURSE CHOICE IS YOURS, I AM JUST REMINDING YOU ABOUT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS :D

Kevin Bridges admits to BBC lies, 100%

I watched this as did most of us. I don’t know if anyone follows Kevin on Twitter but he said this below. Now he has no need to lie, this is 100% proof that the BBC are Pro-Union. We can now lay to rest ANY doubt the BBC are impartial. Kevin tweeted it, he was brave to do so. Now we are left with ‘What Now’ I think many of us are right, EVERYONE is voting Yes, the BBC are fooling us to think it is close and it is nowhere near it. I have the vote at 70% and if you have been keeping up with my blog, you will know I have been counting EVERY MoriPoll. YouGov and media related poll all showing 50/50, on the ground by people like you and I it is 70%. We are voting YES in high Numbers Scotland. I said I would out every lie and every myth, is this another one? Well done Kevin on being brave enough to tell us “The BBC told us to be impartial”

1150427_557037110999005_225924919_n

There are TONS of people on Twitter and other Social Media telling me to “Vote No” but giving no reasons. SCOTLAND THESE ARE ENGLISH PLANTS!! They speak the day Cameron comes to Scotland. 

Do not talk back to these ” Please vote no” people. They are paid WESTMINSTER/NO CAMPAIGN WORKERS! DO NOT BELIEVE OR TALK TO THEM SCOTLAND! 

I will post a few, but tell me if you see them, they are PAID TO TELL PEOPLE TO VOTE NO! A HORRIBLE TACTIC BUT ONE I EXPECTED! 

~~

. really? And Alex Salmond’s campaign has been completely honest and truthful as well, I suppose?

~~

Vote no, please. The yes vote destabilises Scotland & England! Vote against recession!

~~

Of course not. But the is not a vote for the SNP – other parties will continue to be available.

To Build a New Home – Yes Scotland – Brilliant Video by Joshua Hale!

govern_0

A stunning video by Joshua Hale @joshuaJH95 from Twitter. As we stand weeks away from release from the UK Union and get set to create a fairer, wealthier amazing democracy we need people doing all they can to educate each other about ‘WHY’ an #Aye vote is important and makes sense. As Tommy Sheridan says “Hope Over Fear” We must cast aside the fear and lies about Plan B and all that other rubbish, vote yes on the 18th of September and then create a new Scotland, a better Scotland, a Scotland we know our kids and Grandparents will be safe in, we will know disabled people like me will be looked after. We will be in the top 5 wealthiest nation on Earth! when we vote yes. In the meantime, watch this 3/4 minute video by Joshua and please spread it far and wide, it is brilliant, 10/10 Joshua

7 week old blog and my statistics are higher than old blog – Why?

Stats

Today is 1 hour old for me here in Scotlandshire

Now before you turn your head to the left (It is always the left) and think “OH SHAUN STOP THIS YOU PLONKER” Let me finish. I closed my old blog 2 months ago, had a weeks break, whatever then opened “ShaunyNews” all over, I re-branded myself so to speak. Not that it means I have anything to brand of course :D I just wanted to  tie it all together like this here below, I figured I wanted to blog in a certain way and on Twitter I am getting followed by Politicians (Good ones) from the UK and Scotland. News outlets have started to follow me. Very odd. I am a total nobody. If truth be told, when I deleted prayingforoneday http://shaunynews.com/2014/04/20/prayingforoneday-is-now-shaunynews-shaun-gibson-please-reblog-2/ I was very close to closing all Social Media I had. I was getting bored. I had personal stuff going on. I was at the PC more than I was or should have been. These days I am not online during the day. it’s 01:30am here and I will probably be awake all night with this chipped bone in my knee, this is a pain I have yet to experience, but for people with Fibro or worse, you know the story. I am still off medication, I take it still when I am climbing walls and screaming in pain. So why do I blog? What drives me to write. Well being unable to do much else is part of it. Sitting in a mini leather lazy boy is comfy for me. I decided to release some family for good. I will still say hi, but they are gone. Fuck them, they only call when they wan’t something and gossip like kids, so I cut that loose, for now anyway. People have a habit of turning back around when it suits them. Anyway. I probably wrote more than I should have here. I just don’t get why so many people read my crap :D   ShaunyNews Bloghttp://shaunynews.com/
