Journal Alioth's Journal: Britain moves one step closer to thought crime

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/05/10/twitter_bomb_joker_guilty/

This is the very problem with broad legislation like the Terrorism Act. Not only cases like this, but these days it is an offence to have "information that may be useful to a terrorist" (and the onus is on the defendant to prove that it's not, which reverses the principle of the accusers bearing the burden of proof). A recipe for a bread roll is, after all, information that may be useful to a terrorist, a terrorist has to eat after all.
