Ireland: Losing Yet More Marbles
A while ago Ireland made offending religious beliefs a crime.
Now, a court over there has awarded a six year old boy, who was wrongly accused of stealing a bag of crisps from Lidl, £7,500 in damages for defamation of character.
A six year old. Defamation of character. A six year old. Character. Defamation. Of.
He’s fucking six. Six year olds don’t have characters capable of being defamed, the last time I checked.
In further madness, the Lidl employee grabbing his arm apparently constituted false imprisonment and assault.
I just don’t even know any more. The BBC have more.
