It is a worrying sign of things to come when one is not allowed to heckle an M.P and face prosecution for doing so. Like millions of voters, Amy Mura was critical of the ridiculous Anna Soubry, who changed political parties twice after leaving the Conservatives. She ran on an anti Brexit stance and had hardly any support, yet the BBC hosted her almost every day. Judge Arbuthnot should know better than to compare this incident to M.P Jo Cox’s murder, how can you compare a death by the hands of a nutter to someone calling a traitor a traitor. Next it will be the thought police.

There is a HUGE difference between being critical and threatening someone on social media.
