Only a few days remaining until thought crime is brought in

The Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill gets its final reading this week ahead of Royal Ascent on the 8th May. It isn’t too late to write to your MP / Peer to express your feelings though.

  • An act which threatens or appears to threaten a person’s life
  • An act which results in or appears to result in serious injury to a person’s anus, breasts or genitals
  • An act which involves or appears to involve sexual interference with a human corpse
  • A person performing or appearing to perform an act of intercourse or oral sex with an animal
