    Theresa May's government is going to respond to the increase in hate crimes following the referendum with a clamp down by the state:

    - prosecutors will be issued with fresh guidance on racially and religiously aggravated offences and encouraged to pursue tougher sentences by applying to courts to exercise existing powers to increase penalties in hate-crime cases

    - a £2.4m fund will be set up for protective security measures at vulnerable places of worship

    - there will also be “targeted work” to prevent hate crime on public transport and tackle attacks on Muslim women, as well as a continued emphasis on eradicating anti-Semitism

    The Home Office said the action plan will set out steps to boost reporting of offences and support victims.

    Crack down on free speech basically. This will not be so much about actual hate crime - but basically about rounding up white people who make a naughty post on facebook.

    I've spent the past few years hating her as Home Secretary, but so far she's been a highly effective and dynamic PM, will probably start voting Tory for now.
