It is "interesting" (not really the ideal word, but it is a Monday morning!) to see how thin skinned many people have become as a result of living in the Nanny state.
Simon Ledger (a pub singer/entertainer) discovered this to his cost a couple of months ago, when he was singing at the Driftwood Beach Bar in Sandown on the Isle of Wight.
Mr Ledger regularly performed there, and one song (Kung Foo Fighting) is by all accounts popular with the regulars.
Anyhoo, as Mr ledger was belting it out a man of Chinese origin and his mother were walking past. For reasons that are unclear to my thick skinned hide, they found the song to be offensive and reported it to the police.
Later Mr Ledger, ironically having just finished eating in a Chinese restaurant, was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated harassment then released on bail.
There don't seem to be any updated media reports about whether the police have formally charged Mr ledger, if anyone has any updated information please feel free to drop me a note.
