DPP issues interim guidance on social media prosecutions

Scales of justice

Today the DPP issued his interim guidance on social media prosecutions.

The guidance is available here: DPP SocMed Guide

The DPP has requested that the guidance is read and responses submitted. On a cursory glance, it looks as though the guidance largely follows a common sense approach, however there has already been disquiet on Twitter concerning the DPP’s view that ‘deeply unpopular’ messages ought to be policed (see @ajcdeane’s Tweet).

We will have a short post about the guidance up here later. In the meantime, what are your thoughts?
