0030 Edited INTERVIEW | Sarah Phillimore on UK police and "non crimes"

This podcast sees us take a look at "non-crimes" and the chilling effect the British police are having as they go online and record social media posts which they've been told might be offensive or maybe upsetting.

We get into the subject of transgenderism and the difficulties that arise when the long arm of the law is ready to correct your posts with a metaphorical red pen and the threat of more to come.

Our guest - Sarah Phillimore - is a barrister (lawyer) and specialist in family law. She has been drawn into serious legal action after being harassed by the police and their sinister covert accusations of "non-crimes".

23 minutes after this piece was edited, as I was wondering if it was ok to release, this news story emerged:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/dec/01/children-who-want-puberty-blockers-must-understand-effects-high-court-rules

"Children under the age of 16 considering gender reassignment are unlikely to be mature enough to give informed consent to be prescribed puberty-blocking drugs, the high court has ruled."

History is a strange beast, perhaps "the right side of it" doesn't actually involve telling children there's something wrong with their bodies so it's time to pump them full of drugs?

We will do a call in show on this topic - if you're a long term listener and want to come on follow me on Twitter and message me directly. Looking at arranging one of those over the next month or so: www.twitter.com/nickmargerrison
