    How does it not give freedom of speech? It addresses laws that are being defined in a way that challenges freedom of speech.
    No change in freedoms you've admitted here...

    Football clubs would maintain bans over racist chanting, it would just mean the state would not enforce that - something that must be consistently applied if we are to pursue freedom of speech.


    Most of the rest of this bill, I've already expressed my approval of, except for the part that doesn't exist, and part 3 of the public order act.

    Part 3A does exist, it is around halfway through the link in the notes.

    Ah, found it. It was numbered differently to the other areas. Yes I'd keep part 3A too.
