Newport shopkeeper told to remove ‘obey our laws’ T-shirt

So. It is now illegal in the UK to instruct people to obey the law. It would also appear to be illegal in England, a rather central part of the UK, to bear the English flag. When one adds up the few hundred similar articles over the past couple of years it would certainly appear that there is a policy within the UK to destroy itself, as opposed to absurd little isolated incidents that just achieve that by accident.

ARREST THREAT: Matthew Taylor and the T-shirt police have forced him to remove from display ARREST THREAT: Matthew Taylor and the T-shirt police have forced him to remove from display

A NEWPORT shopkeeper has been forced by police to remove a T-shirt from his shop window because they felt it “could be seen to be inciting racial hatred.”

Matthew Taylor, 35, the owner of Taylor’s clothes store on Emlyn Walk in the city, printed up and displayed the T-shirt with the slogan: “Obey our laws, respect our beliefs or get out of our country” after Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, was killed in near Woolwich barracks in London last week.

But following a complaint from a member of the public, police came to his store and threatened to arrest him unless he removed the Tshirt from sight.

  1. Britain is further down the road of self destruction then the Canada or the US but we are all on that road, the left put us on this road and is resisting all efforts to reverse our suicidal actions.

  2. “…Newport city councillor, Majid Rahman said: “I believe in freedom of speech and defend his rights to say what he wants, but once it starts offending people then it’s a police matter and it’s up to them whether they think it’s broken any laws.” ”

    Illogical. Free speech is not only speech that does not offend. And if we start limiting speech because it offends someone then the police need to apply it equally and start arresting Muslim who say so many offensive things to non-Muslims. The Koran itself is a book that is an incitement to violence as we have witnessed over and over.

  3. This would be a very good time to stand up for free speech. Or continue to cower and continue to lose even more freedom.

  4. I really feel for this guy. To be TOLD that you can no longer say what you think in a non violent/racist way just makes me wonder, “How much rope are we going to need?”

  5. But realistically, what is it going to take for so called “middle England” to wake up? When their daughters are being drugged and gang raped over a period of days before they read the islamic war manuel?

  6. Anonymous:

    Actually one way to do that would be to go to a T shirt place in a mall near you and have one made and wear it. Mine will be ready tomorrow.

  7. Welcome to the ‘Orwellian New World Order’. What is happening every day is the erosion of freedom and civil order in the west. Political Correctness. (i.e. a form of Marxism) is taking over.

  8. Muslim dress and their smell offends me but they continue with desert dress codes and terrible body odor. What’s the Sharia police doing? Nothing- poor Muslims so sensitive when they are not cutting people’s head off or raping young girls.
