/ Is Coel happy?
not online since that has different laws.
Wrong bloke - you're thinking of Old King Cole I reckon.
Coel doens't have fiddler, nor does he (in my admittedly limited experience) smoke a pipe.
Yep, fairly happy. Although I for one am puzzled about the distinction between "abusive" (which will remain) and "insulting" (which will be removed). People tell me that this is a significant change, but IMO leaving in "abusive" still gives far too much scope for the police, CPS and magistrates to prosecute speech that they find mildly upsetting.
I'm told that the Old King Cole legend ultimately derives from this chap: http://www.geni.com/people/Coel-Hen-The-Old-King-of-Northern-Britain-Dux-Britanniorum/60000000062329...
One of the very few people who I've heard of with the same forename as me.
About the only other one I can think of is this boy: http://www.thewestmorlandgazette.co.uk/news/9892124.Coel__4__is_youngest_to_climb_all_the_Wainwright...
"You are f*cking liar" abusive and insulting??
"The use of insulting language will no longer be illegal in cases in which a specific victim cannot be identified, the home secretary, Theresa May, has said."
So if I was to stand in front of a group of people and yell "you're a c*nt", I couldn't be nicked as it wasn't aimed at anyone in particular. If I was to walk up to one member of that group and tell them they were a c*nt, then I could be nicked. If they were a whinging tw*t with no backbone or sense of proportion and complained to a rozzer about me anyway.
