Apart from the fact that maybe the Madeleys should just keep their gobs shut on anything of any importance i.e. rape... and perhaps not partake in the twatter of twitter.. leave the twatter of twitter for self-absorbed twats like Stephen Fry..... and I say that as someone who admires Fry's intelligence, just not some of his recent antics...

Is 2 years not slightly excessive for 'trolling', when if you are a footballer you only get the same sentence for rape? And where will this eventually lead to? 6 month sentences for writing about conspiracies?

Just sayin.....

Internet trolls face up to two years in jail under new laws

Internet trolls could face up to two years in jail under new laws, Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has said. He told the Mail on Sunday quadrupling the current maximum six-month term showed his determination to "take a stand against a baying cyber-mob".

The plan has been announced days after TV presenter Chloe Madeley suffered online abuse, which Mr Grayling described as "crude and degrading".Magistrates could pass serious cases on to crown courts under the new measures.

Mr Grayling told the newspaper: "These internet trolls are cowards who are poisoning our national life. "No-one would permit such venom in person, so there should be no place for it on social media. That is why we are determined to quadruple the current six-month sentence."

Miss Madeley received threats after defending her mother Judy Finnigan's comments on a rape committed by footballer Ched Evans, which she said was "non-violent" and did not cause "bodily harm".

Richard Madeley has said "prosecution awaits" those who sent "sick rape threats" to his daughter.

The justice secretary said: "As the terrible case of Chloe Madeley showed last week, people are being abused online in the most crude and degrading fashion.

"This is a law to combat cruelty - and marks our determination to take a stand against a baying cyber-mob.

"We must send out a clear message: if you troll you risk being behind bars for two years."

Miss Madeley told the Mail on Sunday she agreed with the new proposals to update the 10-year-old law.

'Online terrorism'

"It needs to be accepted that physical threats should not fall under the 'freedom of speech' umbrella," she said. "It should be seen as online terrorism and it should be illegal."

Those who subject others to sexually offensive, verbally abusive or threatening material online are currently prosecuted in magistrates' courts under the Malicious Communications Act, with a maximum prison sentence of six months.

More serious cases could go to crown court under the proposals, where the maximum sentence would be extended. The law change is to be made as an amendment to the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill going through Parliament. The new measures would also give police more time to collect enough evidence to enable successful prosecutions to be brought.

Mr Grayling had announced earlier this month that the Bill would also have an amendment dealing with so-called "revenge porn", with those posting such images on the internet facing two years in jail.

I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

Fucking Madeley twunts.

Let's face it this is the thin edge of the wedge to stop dissent on the web.

I would say I would like to rape and kill Camoron. However, he seems to be killing himself with oysters, quail eggs, and magical pasties.
