This afternoon Toby Young, General Secretary of the Free Speech Union told MailOnline: “Police forces in England and Wales have been told by the Home Secretary and the head of the College of Policing to stop investigating Twitter spats and focus on crime. Unfortunately, it seems like Surrey Police didn’t get the memo. If I was a Surrey resident who’d been burgled and couldn’t persuade the local police to do anything about it, I’d be extremely angry that they’re wasting time on this trivial nonsense. Something has gone very, very wrong at Surrey Police. They need to get their priorities straight.”
