There is some hope on this island for the outdated blasphemy laws to be finally dumped.



Watch this space.

Does yankland have anything as stoopid as blasphemy laws?
In some places, until recently, we had "blue laws" which prevented the sale of certain commodities on Sunday, the (incorrect) sabbath.

We have irrational anti-obscenity laws enforced by anonymous, unaccountable and un-credentialed and possibly insane individuals.

We have "hate speech" laws that can be interpreted against any expression that someone does not like.
