Unfortunately, nobody at the Crown Prosecution Service was actually able of explaining what the crime of 'wearing a political uniform' means.
Later, this evening, I read an article of The Independent that says that the said Deputy Leader was convicted of the crime of 'wearing a political uniform'. When I asked The Independent to explain what 'wearing a political uniform' means, nobody was at hand to explain and all they said was that they didn't have a clue themselves and that they just published what Police authorities said.
When you hears the words 'wearing a political uniform' one is reminded of the SS and of the SA thinking about political uniforms. What in the legal system is 'wearing a political uniform'? The Crown Prosecution Service doesn't seem to be able to explain. The Independent that published the article doesn't have a clue and I am sure that most if not all the readers of British newspapers know what the crime of 'wearing a political uniform' actually is.
I gave my name, my email address and my telephone number to the Crown Prosecution Service and hopefully somebody will come back to me to explain what 'wearing a political uniform' means.
Thank you for contacting Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) Enquiries
The CPS is responsible for prosecuting most criminal cases in England and Wales, following a police investigation.
If you are contacting CPS Enquiries in relation to a case which is presently before the courts, or in relation to a case which the CPS is advising the police on charges, you should contact the relevant CPS area directly. Contact details for the 13 CPS regional offices can be found at the following link:
Your query may be forwarded to the relevant CPS regional office in the best position to respond to any issues that you have raised. If your email is forwarded, a response will be provided to you by the relevant CPS regional office within 20 working days.
Please note that if you have previously been advised that the CPS cannot provide assistance to you and your query does not raise any new issues we will not be able to provide any further response. If your enquiry does not relate to the CPS we will be unable to provide a response, but may be able to provide contact details for the relevant agency or organisation.
If we are talking about a crime, I assume that officers of the Law should be able to define it straightaway, instead of telling me that I have to wait to find out. Are they making laws as they move along? Are people being convicted on the basis of laws that do not actually exist?
What about the role of the mass media? Are the mass media supposed to print whatever they are told without even asking about what they are actually printing? The Independent does not have a clue and I reckon most if not all the other mass media haven't got a clue about what they crime actually was.
