As the SKWAWKBOX revealed earlier today, ‘moderate’ Labour MP John Mann, known for his aggressive confrontation with former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, was spoken to by police late last year about an anti-social behaviour pamphlet Mann had published, in what police described as a hate-incident investigation.
Police officers told Mr Mann that if he planned to republish the brochure – as he now says he does – the law “would require” that the new version,
should identify the problem (i.e. unauthorised encampment) and not single out a group of people as responsible for the problem (i.e. Travellers).
The SKWAWKBOX asked Mr Mann whether the new version would specifically mention Travellers, but did not receive his response in time for publication of the earlier article. That answer has now been received.
Wait and see.
