Legislate in haste, repent, REPENT! at leisure…

THE DUP has been taking quite an interest in the new Anti-Terrorism Bill. Jeffrey Donaldson wants phone tap evidence to be made admissible as evidence in court. But Jim Shannon has other concerns. He believes that “laws to be rushed through by the Government in the wake of the London bombings could effectively outlaw open-air evangelism“. Could anti-terror laws really mean the end for the manic street preachers that do our heads in? God only knows how many lost souls they’ve saved from the fiery pit of damnation. But is it not slightly odd that street preaching is perceived (by someone defending it) as something that could be seen to incite hatred or terrorist acts?
