This has gone too far. Please send a thunderbolt. Urgently.
A teenager, excited about the Olympics, as ordered by our glorious leader, has just been arrested.
For tweeting to Tom Daley as follows:
@Rileyy_69 which said: “You let your dad down i hope you know that.”
This is considered offensive, and thus an offence under the Malicious Communications Act.
Yes, he apologised. Yes, he didn’t mean it to be as offensive as it was taken (Tom’s father passed away some time ago)
None of that has stopped him being arrested this morning. He will have a criminal record now.
Please could you direct the thunderbolt in the direction of the Home Office.
I understand they are responsible for so malignly misusing our police force.
They will probably want me arrested now, too.
