I saw that too in the pub, an old lady who happened to be passing by the screen had a stroke (3D telly + woman, go figure), quick someone post up the number so we can all report this crime!

The police need to catch these sickos

Am I right in thinking that the anonymous number to call the old bill on, with information, will be untraceable?

If so, surely we need to be inundating them with piss-taking information.

How many calls do these lines get complaining that they have heard supporters of Tottenham Hotspur’s chanting a despicable anti Semitic SLUR?
And how many arrests have been made this season as a result?

Watched the Spurs v Man City game and the abuse was clear and sustained from seemingly large groups of bigoted anti semites

No such thing as an anonymous and untraceable number.

What they are saying is that the information won't be available to the average Dimbleby, but it will be stored somewhere and retrievable.

Astonished that that hasn't already happened but I'd doubt very much it's ACTUALLY anonymous and untraceable.

As if plod and the club won't do as much as possible to get every single West Ham fan banned. Cunts.

See point A in the earlier post.

Homophobia's definition includes ridicule and dislike of gays. That's just how it is.

If I were to say to you "fuck off back to your own country you foreign cunt", you'd be well justified to call me xenophobic.

If I were to say "fuck off and bum someone you poof", you'd be well justified to call me homophobic.

If you accept this the only way you could justify your position is if someone's calling someone gay is purely objective and not meant as an insult. And lets not pretend for a second that's what happened here.

That said, this sort of thing being acted on by plod is a fucking joke and proof that they need defunding.

I imagine the next time we play Fulham, there will be an appeal to find anyone who sang about them having butlers, as it's a slant against the rich and privilaged.

The do-gooders wouldn’t know what to do Alfs as it is perfectly acceptable to call someone a Nazi if you’re a leftie, or one of the righteous as they’d prefer to known as.

Re: Two West Ham fans arrested for making ‘homophobic gestures’
Met Police appeal about this now -


Officers are appealing for witnesses and footage after homophobic abuse was heard at a West Ham vs Brighton football match on Saturday, 1 February.

Homophobic chanting was heard from a number of individuals during the match in the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand at The London Stadium. It is believed to have involved home fans.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or can provide detectives with video footage is urged to come forward.

Inspector Matt Ashmead from the Met's Public Order Investigation Team said: We take allegations such as these extremely seriously and will act accordingly to any information brought to our attention. We work in partnership with the club and the stadium safety team to identify those who commit hate crime at football and we will take robust action against them.

With the assistance of law-abiding fans this weekend we were able to identify and arrest two individuals who were obtusely shouting homophobic abuse towards other supporters during this game. We welcome any further information or footage that would supply further evidence, or identify other offenders.

Behaviour like this is completely unacceptable and perpetrators will be held accountable for their actions, so that the majority of law-abiding fans can enjoy a football game without the minority ruining their experience.

If you have any information or footage to support our investigation please call us on 020 8246 9386 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Blimey. I wonder how long a stretch you'd get for calling someone a Nazi poofta? Life, possibly.

Why mincers annoy a lot of people, I mean who gives a shit really?

I wouldn't be offended of a poof had a pop at me for liking pussy.

Someone was jailed recently for 28 days for calling someone a nazi. 28 fucking days, more time than terrorists get.

Cunts like Sam Smith have a lot to answer for.

We aren't discussing an 'ism' - as in racism. We are discussing how, at worst, life-style ridicule has been redefined as 'phobic' in order to lower a threshhold. People are perfectly entitled to dislike wasps, mosquitoes, lard, Manchester United, Jews, gays, Frenchmen, women, men, clowns, spam-heads, blokes on bikes or whatever they choose. As long as they don't incite hatred or violence against people.

Nobody is suggesting it is 'nice'. But to criminalise it is 95% of the way to Thoughtcrime.

As somebody cleverer than me said, 'Orwell wrote 1984 as a warning, not an instruction manual'.
