A man in Scotland was jailed for teaching his girlfriend's pug to do a Nazi salute. The U.K. at this point in an Orwellian nightmare.
Britain currently has the same level of freedom as North Korea. And, no, this is not Fake News. I realize that this sounds like something out of The Onion. But you can literally go to jail in Scotland for teaching your dog tricks.
People laugh at the concept of the "slippery slope", but I have observed that it is true. Once you claim it is OK to make certain thoughts and speech illegal, there is no end to what is deemed offensive. I have no doubt that having a Christian cross will one day be considered "hate" in the U.K.
